  • All speakers should upload their presentations on a computer in the lecture room before the start of the first morning session, during the lunch break or during the coffee break at the latest.

Each presenter has 15 minutes for his/her lecture and 3 minutes for a discussion. There will be discussion immediately after the lectures; also a common discussion can take place when all papers scheduled for the session have been presented. All presenters are thus requested to remain for the entire session.

When it is time for your lecture, go to the podium immediately when the previous speaker has finished the presentation and answered questions. The session chair will introduce your lecture and ask you to start your presentation.

Please start your presentation considering the following:

1. Start immediately on the topic and avoid another introduction given by yourself.

2. Pace your talk to end at the scheduled ending time.

3. Please observe the time allocated for your presentation and discussion.

4. Please follow instructions of the session chairman.

5. During the time for discussion, listen carefully to the questions from the audience and answer them briefly. If you cannot answer the questions briefly, ask for a private discussion after the session.
