  • Acceptable digital format for presentation - 16x9 ppx PowerPoint for Windows or PDF.
  • It will be no possible to use personal laptops - presenters should therefore ensure they use presentations features compatible with PC and standard fonts.

Guidelines for poster presentations:

  • All posters must be prepared in English.
  • Poster boards’ dimensions (including frames) will be A0: 100 cm in width and 200 cm in height. To keep good legibility of the poster, we recommend a maximum size of 90 cm (35.4 inches) in width and 120 cm (47.2 inches) in length. Please use the “portrait” position.
  • Posters should be set up in the Poster Area (conference venue EMPA Akademie) from 12:00 p.m. on September 14th and must be removed by 13:00 on September 16th. Please make sure that your poster stays available for the all-time of the conference. Posters which will remain in the Poster Area after its closing will not be kept.
  • Poster can be viewed during breaks and lunch time throughout the entire Conference. The presenting author should be available near the poster during the Poster Sessions to discuss his/her poster with interested colleagues.
  • There will be one poster board for each poster. Poster boards will be marked with numbers according to the numbering of posters as given in the program.
  • Conference Staff will assist and provide tapes for fastening the posters.
