Oral Presentations

Speakers will be allocated a total of 10-15 minutes for their oral presentations. The precise time-duration of presentations will be established later, based on the number of accepted oral communications. It is anyway suggested to save 5 minutes to allow for questions/discussion.

The Congress language is English. Text in slides accompanying presentations must be in English.

All presentations will be displayed via the University computers (Windows PC, PowerPoint file format). Speakers will not be allowed to use their own laptop.
