Instructions for presenting at the symposium

Details for oral presentation

The allocated time to each talk is usually 20 minutes (15 minutes for oral presentation, followed by 5 minutes for discussion).

Speakers and session chairs are requested to strictly adhere to this schedule in order to finish sessions on time.

The conference room will be equipped with a computer projection system (LCD projector and PC with Windows, Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader). Speakers are required to meet with their session chairpersons in the conference room at least 10 minutes before the beginning of the session. During this time speakers upload and check their presentations on the designated computer. For all technical questions a local staff member will be available to help.

Details for publication in conference proceedings

The manuscripts will be published in the ICBM conference proceedings which is part of the ICBM series.
