Symposia speakers can submit an extra abstract as first author, being able to present a symposium talk and one individual presentation (oral or poster).


Presentation Formats

There are two presentation formats to choose from:

  • Oral Presentations

Oral presentations have the duration of 15 minutes: 12 minutes for your presentation, 2 minutes for questions and one minute to allow participants to change rooms. After the 14 minutes, the “Time Keeper” in the room must ask the presenter to conclude the talk.

  • Poster Presentations

Posters will be up in the lounge of the venue where the coffee breaks will occur, giving high visibility to these presentations.


Guidelines: Posters should be at A0 format (85cm width x 120 cm height) with readable graphs and the main points about the research.
