Instructions for presentations

Technical requirements

The moderated poster sessions will consist of two parts: First, all presenters will give a 3 min presentation with the use of PowerPoint on one common screen with projector for each session. To stay on time, presentations will be stopped by the moderators after 3 min. The presentation will be followed by a 4 min moderated discussion. When all abstracts have been given in the moderated part of the session, presenters must be available at their poster for follow-up discussions, feedback and questions for the rest of the scheduled poster session period.

- POSTER: Recommended Poster Size: 90x120cm (Portrait)


Compulsory format for PowerPoint presentations in the moderated poster sessions:

  • * Every slide (all 6 in every presentation) must be clearly labeled with the abstract/poster number in the top left corner. This number can be found in the “List of accepted publications” below.
  • * The presentation is limited to max. 6 slides with no animations, sequential build-up of individual slides or videos.
  • * Slide 1 should contain the abstract title, list of authors and affiliations only.
  • * Slide 2-5 should contain a brief introduction and clearly stated hypothesis if deemed necessary, as well as results from the abstract and poster, preferably as figures and/or tables.
  • * Slide 6 should contain summary and/or conclusion(s) in bullet points.

Technical requirements:

  • * Microsoft PowerPoint on a Windows 7 based PC will be used for all presentations.
  • * Slides must be fitted to be used on a laptop with screen resolution around 1280 x 800 pixels.
  • * Use the “Insert” feature of PowerPoint to add images to your presentations. Do not copy/paste images into the slide or click and drag.
  • * Ensure no video or animation is included in the presentation.
  • * Please note that Internet access will not be available.
  • * No sound system will be connected to the computer.
  • * "Presenter view" is turned off in PowerPoint
  • * Maximum file size 50Mbyte.

The following file types are the only acceptable:

  • * Microsoft Office PowerPoint Presentation (.pptx)
  • * Microsoft Office PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation (.ppt)
