Oral Presentations

Oral presenters will have 12 minutes for presentation plus 3 minutes for discussion. Please bring your presentation on a memory stick and load it on the Congress computer of the Auditorium, before the start of the session. Please note that the Congress computer is supplied with Windows 7 and Office 2010 and therefore your presentation must be compatible with this software. You will not be allowed to use your own laptop computer. There will be one Taylor & Francis Book Awards for the best student oral presentations at the Meeting, in the amount of $200.

Poster Presentations

The dimensions of the poster should not exceed 80 cm wide x 120 cm high (if it does not meet these dimensions, you may not be able to present it). Poster presentations have unique identifying numbers (you may find on the back of your badge) that define poster locations. Poster presentations will be mounted on the walls of the Congress room. Presenters should display posters ONLY on the assigned date. The first author of each poster abstract is responsible for the proper assembly, mounting, and presentation of his/her poster. The organization of the Congress will provide the necessary material for poster mounting. Presenters will be allowed to begin mounting their posters early in the morning (before oral sessions), during coffee breaks and at lunchtime. Make sure your poster is in place at the poster session of the day in order to be evaluated. There will be one Taylor & Francis Book Awards for the best student poster presentations at the Meeting, in the amount of $200. Posters must be removed at the end of the day, so that the boards may be prepared for the next day.
