Oral Sessions

Poster Sessions

Poster sessions are scheduled to provide an opportunity for selected papers to be presented in greater visual detail and should facilitate vivid discussions with attendees. For poster sessions, authors will be provided with one bulletin board (1m in width and 2m in height) on which to display a summary of the paper. Fixing material will be provided. The boards will be marked with the paper session code. Authors must remain in the vicinity of their bulletin boards for the duration of the session to answer questions. Note that poster presenters are not supplied with any audiovisual equipment.
