Speakers' and Poster Instructions

Scientific presentations will be held either as oral presentations or posters. Presentations are held in English (conference language) if not stated otherwise.

Oral Presentations

Unless otherwise stated, presentations will have the following formats:

  • Contributed talks are 15 minutes including discussion and speaker change (12 min talk + 3 min discussion/speaker change).
  • Invited talks are 30 minutes including discussion and speaker change (25 min talk + 5 min discussion/speaker change).
  • Plenary, introductory and focus talks are 60 minutes (45 min talk + 15 min discussion).

All lecture halls and seminar rooms are equipped with projectors (aspect ratio 4:3) and laptops, and will be opened at least 30 minutes prior to the session.

We kindly ask all speakers of contributed talks to upload their presentation at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session from a USB-stick in PDF format. Speakers of invited talks, plenary talks, introductory talks, and focus talks are also invited to follow this procedure, alternatively they may connect their own laptop via VGA or HDMI ports (for all other ports, please provide an appropriate adapter).

However, we kindly ask these speakers to ensure the laptops handshake with the projectors at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session. In the case of complications, please additionally provide a PDF version of the talk on a USB-stick. Service staff will be available in all lecture halls to assist with the uploading of presentations. For any other other presentation needs and facilities, please ask for availability at the information desk immediately upon arrival at the conference.



Poster sessions (Tuesday - Thursday) will take place in the exhibition tents at the “Platz der Alten Synagoge” from 16.30 to 18.30.

Each poster should be no larger than 85 cm x 120 cm (DIN A0). The poster boards will be marked with the number according to the scientific program. Authors are asked to mount their poster before their assigned session. Each poster should display the number specified in the scientific program. For the mounting of the poster please use the provided “power strips” or pins at the poster frame or contact the available student staff.

Authors are requested to be available at their poster for at least half of the length of their poster session. Authors will have the opportunity to provide information about when they will be available during the session.

The posters have to be removed latest at 12:00 on the day following the poster session. Any posters remaining on display walls will be removed and disposed of without notice. 

The  conference  management  accepts  no liability for the posters.
