To be announced.



Advice for on-site speakers

Please prepare your presentation as a PowerPoint file for Windows® (Maximum Version 2010) or pdf file format (4:3 format). Please don't use special characters in the file names. To be on the safe side, check the Corrigenda distributed with the hardcopy of the program and the "Program Changes" at the board in front of the conference office to find out if there are any changes to the program that might relate to your presentation. Make sure to bring your presentation to the media room at least 2 hours before your session starts. Files for early morning presentations should be handed during the day before. The presentation file(s) should be made available on USB stick or CD-ROM. Unfortunately, own computers cannot be used for the presentation.
Please make sure to arrive at the lecture hall prior to the start of the session and to introduce yourself to the chair.

Please keep strictly to the scheduled presentation time, which includes the time for discussion (see time schedule/hard copy of the program). The session chairs are advised to start the sessions in time and to terminate the lectures on schedule to avoid any overrun. 

Advice for on-site scientific poster presenters

Posters should be prepared in English. The format should not exceed DIN A0 (84.1 cm width x 118.9 cm height; portrait format), and the posters should not be laminated. Mounting materials will be provided. Your poster should be presented on the assigned poster board during the whole conference. Additionally, there will be a special poster session (see program) during which one of the authors should be personally present at the poster. Poster presenters are encouraged to distribute one-page handouts.
