Instructions for presentations

Technical requirements

The moderated poster sessions will consist of two parts: First, all presenters will give a 3 min presentation with the use of PowerPoint on one common screen with projector for each session. To stay on time, presentations will be stopped by the moderators after 3 min. The presentation will be followed by a 4 min moderated discussion. When all abstracts have been given in the moderated part of the session, presenters must be available at their poster for follow-up discussions, feedback and questions for the rest of the scheduled poster session period.
