Plenary Presentation

In order to arrange the oral presentations as smooth as possible, presenters should consider the following information. For each presentation we reserved 20 minutes slots for the talk itself and 5 minutes extra-time for discussion. The lecture hall is equipped with a beamer and loudspeakers as well as a presentation system running Adobe Reader and Microsoft PowerPoint Office 2003. Talks to be presented via this system should be stored on a regular USB stick. It is also possible for presenters to bring their own Laptop. Other requirements such as special hardware or an overhead projector for acetate sheets shall be announced to the conference organizers in preface.

Please note, that each speaker should test his setup briefly ten minutes before the beginning of his session

Poster Presentation

Posters will be presented on Tuesday, 13th May and on Wednesday 14th May in the course of two poster sessions at 16:00 - 17:00 (session 1) and 15:45 - 17:00 (session 2) respectively. Each poster will be assigned to one of these sessions. It is mandatory for authors to attend their poster's session in order to present their contribution.
The presentation area will be located in front of the lecture hall where the talks will be given and will be open all day.
Posters should be formatted to DIN A0 size (841mm x 1189mm or 33.1" x 46.8"). Due to the dimensions of the presentation boards portrait orientation is recommended although this is not necessary. The viewing distance will usually be from about 1-2 meters. Please be sure to choose font and image sizes large enough to ensure good readability from this distance.
