  • Please be present at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your session and let the chairperson know you are there.

Information for Chairs

  • You are kindly asked to switch between presentations by simply announcing the name of the next presenter and the title of the presentation. Due to the tight schedule, there will not be sufficient time for introducing individual lecturers in a more detailed manner.
  • Please do your best to strictly limit the duration of each presentation and discussion to the allotted time.
  • If a lecturer is missing, please stick to the original program, i.e., extend the discussion time of the preceding presentation or allow a break for the duration of the missing lecture(s). This enables participants to move in between sessions and to listen to chosen individual lectures according to the announced sequence.


Poster Size

  • The maximum poster size is DIN A0 portrait (841 x 1189 mm), otherwise you will have problems in mounting the poster on the provided boards.
