Format

Three types of presentation may be proposed:
• Symposium
• Individual Poster
• Poster Workshop

Symposium

A Symposium consists of three or four presentations (including an optional presentation by a discussant). Symposia with contributions from at least two different countries will be preferred. The chair of a symposium is expected to recruit a group of participant authors, and to submit an abstract outlining the topic, summarizing key issues, and integrating the findings of the participants’ papers.


Individual Poster

Posters will be the preferred format for free-standing research presentations. Posters are recommended when the contribution is strongly data-based and therefore particularly suited for graphic or visual presentation. Individual posters will be presented with other thematically relevant posters. Posters presented onsite will be required to be portrait orientation. 
 
Printed posters should not exceed: 90 cm (width) x 120 cm (height) (35,5 in x 47,24 in), recommended poster size is A0. Only portrait orientation posters will be considered for the poster exhibition.

 
Poster Workshop

A Poster Workshop consists of 4 - 6 posters organized around a central topic. A Poster Workshop should be organized by one chair or two co-chairs and may include a discussant. Poster workshops with contributions from at least two different countries will be preferred.

Posters in poster workshop will be grouped according to their topic. Each poster presenter will have 5 min for his/her poster presentation and 5 min for questions/answers. At the end, discussant will have 15 min for poster summary and discussion. Poster workshops will be from 45 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on the number of posters presented in Poster Workshop. 
 
Printed posters should not exceed: 90 cm (width) x 120 cm (height) (35,5 in x 47,24 in), recommended poster size is A0. Only portrait orientation posters will be considered for the poster exhibition. 


Multiple Submissions

Individuals are permitted to serve as first presenting author for a maximum of two presentations (symposium paper, individual poster, or poster in a poster workshop). Serving as chair, co-chair, and discussant does not count toward this limit.
