Specific Instructions for Speakers

Each talk is 30 minutes long including the time for questions and comments. Please aim to speak for up to 20 minutes and leave at least 10 minutes for questions and comments.

A projector and speakers will be available at the conference. If you are doing a PowerPoint presentation, it would be best if you use your own laptop, as there may be problems (with alignment, fonts, etc.) if you switch computers, but if you wish, we would be happy to lend you a laptop. If this is your preference, please let us know in advance whether you need PC/Windows or Mac.

Please come to check the compatibility of your data with the conference projection system during the break prior to your session at the latest.

If you have a handout for your talk, please make 150 copies and bring them to the registration desk at the beginning of the morning session of your presentation day.

Specific Instructions for Poster Presenters

Your poster should be in English and maximally A0 size, i.e., 118.9 cm (wide) by 84.1 cm (high).

You will have a poster board this size to display your poster (more about this below). Posters can be affixed to the board with pins. We will prepare sufficient pins for each poster.

Please try to use a large font size in your poster, so that the audience can easily understand your poster when they stand, say, 1 meter away from it.

The poster session will be held in the space on the second floor just outside the Lecture Hall where the oral presentations will be given, and also on the first floor. Poster presentations are divided into two groups, Poster session 1 (Day 1) and Poster session 2 (Day 2), and numbered sequentially in each group (e.g., “P1-15”). Please check your poster number in the program in advance. Please affix your poster to the board by noon on the day of the presentation. Please make sure to use the board marked with your poster number.

Presenters with odd-numbered posters are required to be at their poster in the first 45 minutes of the session, and presenters with even-numbered posters are required to be at their poster in the last 45 minutes of the session.

You can keep your poster on the board until the end of the final session of the day.

Please feel free to distribute subsidiary materials such as handouts, photocopies of your poster, and copies of your paper. You can also use your laptop computer if you find it helpful.
