There is 20 minutes total time dedicated for oral presentation of every paper: 15 minutes presentation and 5 minutes for subsequent discussion. A presentation computer will be prepared. MS Powerpoint PPTX files and Adobe Acrobat PDF files are accepted. Please avoid using your personal computer for presentation, if possible. It will be possible to upload and test your presentations during coffee breaks. Technical support will be available all the time during the conference sessions.
