Oral and Poster Guidelines

Oral presentations are presented in Online Concurrent Sessions. Each session is comprised of three or four presentations, each lasting 20 minutes (15 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for audience questions). The co-chairs will assist if needed. In our conference, it is possible to change between sessions. This means, that the time table is followed very strictly. Chairs and co-chairs in the sessions will inform all the presenters about time and they are instructed to stop the presenter if they speak longer than 15 minutes. In 15 minutes you have good time to present your study, project or development project. We recommend the use of PowerPoint.  In 15 minutes you can have from 10 to 12 slides. Use font size 24, maximum of 40 words / slide, and consider if you can replace some of the text with a picture. In order to avoid technical challenges in remote conference, do not use video or sound in your presentation. The file size should not be over 5 MB. Oral presentation abstracts are printed in the conference Abstract eBook. Technical guidance and support will be available during the whole conference.

Posters are presented as ePosters and are presented in Hopin -platform where there is a special EXPO area. We ask you to prepare your poster in PowerPoint (one slide), save it in picture format (JPEG or PNG) and in Landscape (horizontal) orientation. Name it using your name and country (“Lauri Kuosmanen Finland”). Please send it to following email address: [email protected] no later than September 19th.  We will then download it to the system and it will be available in EXPO area during the whole conference.

Tips for good poster:

  • Use clear and easy to read fonts
  • Less is more; try to say your message in short
  • Avoid CAPITALS and Bolding in main text
  • Avoid complex tables and figures as they are difficult to perceive in digital format
  • Use colors in moderate way
  • Add only good quality pictures which bring something essential to your poster
  • Check your poster carefully before sending it

If you have questions, do not hesitate to ask: [email protected]

Poster presentation abstracts are printed in the conference Abstract eBook.
