Guidelines for speakers

1. As a Speaker, you are  encouraged to attend the session room at least 15-20 minutes before the beginning of the session. Please check the congress map in the programme for room number and location. When you arrive at your session please introduce yourself to the chairman.
2. Speakers cannot connect laptops into computer projectors in the meeting room. Speakers have to load their presentation in advance in the room where the presentation will take place. Members from the organisation will be in the rooms before the start of the sessions and during coffee and lunch breaks to assist you.
3. The time slot for each presentation is 20 minutes (maximum). The LOC (Local Organizing Committee) recommends a 15-min talk (maximum) with the remaining time for questions. Please strictly adhere to the allotted time to ensure the parallel sessions are truly parallel!
