Information for Talk Presenters

Information for Talk Presenters

To accommodate as many talks as possible and allow participants to switch between sessions, slots for 5 presentations will be included in each regular session of 90 minutes (only symposia may divide the time differently).

Up to eight of these 90-minute sessions will run in parallel from Tuesday, July 18 - Friday, July 21. See this PDF document and search for your name to find out the time of your talk.

In all regular sessions, each individual presentation runs for 18 minutes in total, including 15 minutes for the actual talk and 2-3 minutes for questions and changing speakers.

Each session has a chair who will keep the time and take the questions from the audience, as well as a helper (wearing an IMPS T-shirt) to assist you with the technical equipment. You can find the name of your session chair in the final program.

Please arrive at the room at least 10 minutes before the session starts and introduce yourself to the chair immediately.

All session rooms are equipped with a laptop/desktop computer and LCD projector, as well as a wireless mouse, microphone and laser pointer/presenter. The presentation computer has internet access and has a PDF viewer and MS Office software installed. However, to avoid funny surprises with PowerPoint, speakers are advised to convert their slides to PDF files with all fonts embedded.

Bring your slides on a USB memory stick (also known as USB flash drive) and copy the file onto the presentation computer in time before the session starts. Only for special reasons (such as software presentations) should speakers use their own laptops, in which case you need to test it in time before the session starts.

The Speaker Practice Room is room KOH-B-10. It is available for Speaker Practice during the program hours whenever there is no plenary session taking place, on a first come first serve basis. Please contact the registration desk if you need assistance with the technical setup. 

In case you wish to provide handouts for your presentation, you are responsible for bringing your own prints.

We hope you enjoy the conference!
