Oral and Poster Instructions


All authors presenting their work in an oral session are required to prepare a PowerPoint presentation of their paper, to be emailed to the Symposium Organising Secretariat on papers@sardiniasymposium.it no later than 22th September 2017.   

Oral presentations should last 15 minutes, while workshop presentations should last 10 minutes as they form the basis for detailed discussion among participants.

During the presentation company advertising should be avoided. Presence of authors’ affiliations or company logos should be very discreet.

On site, speakers should contact the chairman 15 minutes before the beginning of the session in which their paper is to be presented. The chairman will be available in the conference hall where the session is to take place. Speakers should be present at the conference table from the beginning of the session and remain for the entire duration. 
If your allotted time runs out during your presentation, do not under any circumstances hurry to finish the entire presentation but go straight to the conclusions. To this regard, it may be of use to prepare a slide illustrating the conclusions in a synthesized version.

A duty member in the Speakers’ Room will be on hand for all requirements. A PC will be available for speakers use and priority will be given in line with session timetable. The computer in the speakers’ room may not be used to prepare the presentation, but only to make last-minute changes or a final check.


Posters should be mounted by authors during the afternoon of Sunday 1st October or the morning of Monday 2nd October and removed on the afternoon of Friday 6th October.
Posters must be A0 (841x1189 mm) vertical format and printed on heavy-duty resistant paper or cardboard. Please ensure that you are equipped with all necessary fixing materials (i.e. scissors, tape, drawing pins).
Posters should be written using large letters as they should be legible from a distance of at least one meter.
 Under no circumstances may posters contain any kind of advertising or commercial propaganda.

Posters will be placed in the anti-foyer of the main Congress Hall. Each author should check on the outside map the position assigned to his/her poster.

The Staff at the registration desk will be pleased to provide assistance in case of need.

          NEWS! Speaking slots will be made available for all poster authors to discuss their research and answer questions during moderated sessions.
