  • Projection means: Each room will be equipped with a projector and a fixed computer for direct projection. The computers are equipped with Windows and Microsoft Office 2007 or later versions (Word, Excel, Power Point) and with USB drives. Speakers who would like to use a special software or use their PC should contact the Secretariat, at least 30 minutes before the session.



There are poster sessions during the Conference. Each poster session author will be provided with a poster board area and mounting pins. The poster number and title will be indicated on the board. Authors are responsible for mounting their posters the morning of their presentation and removing them at the end of the day.
Authors are advised to present close to their poster in order to discuss their research with the conference participants at the time indicated by the conference programme.
