There will be 2 interactive session of 1.45 hours per day, so 6 in total. Interactive sessions will consist of two parts, we will start with teasers, followed by interactive discussions. They will be held in a dedicated room with 21 poster stands and a projector with laptop for the short presentation.
The interactive sessions will start with teaser presentations. Each poster presenter will get the opportunity to tempt the attendants to visit their poster by 90-seconds teaser presentations.
After the teaser presentations, all presenters will go their poster stand. Now, the attendants can visit the posters to ask questions about the work and engage in discussion.
Instructions to prepare your poster
The size of the poster board is 950 x 1140 mm which allows you to display one A0 (841 x1189 mm) poster in portrait mode. Push pins or adhesive backed Velcro will be provided to hang your poster. Next to the stand, there will be a small shelf that is big enough to hold your tablet or laptop (e.g. for showing videos). Please make sure that the text is legible, we suggest a font size no smaller than 40 points.
Instructions to prepare your teaser presentation
The room is equipped with an LCD projector (aspect ratio 16:9) and a Windows laptop with Microsoft Powerpoint and Adobe reader.
Teaser presentations should not contain more than three slides. See below for specific instructions on how to send in your presentation.
All presentations will be uploaded on the room laptop, so your slides can be turned on as soon as you come to the podium. The teaser-presentation will be accurately timed, so make sure you will finish nicely in time.
Note that in the Netherlands the mains have an AC voltage of 230 Volts, at 50 Hz. The used power sockets are of type F (grounded, also compatible with C and E, see link: www.power-plugs-sockets.com/netherlands-holland/). We will supply extension cords, but will not supply power plug adapters from non-European to type-F plugs.
Instructions to hang your poster
- For the morning interactive sessions, the posters should be hung before the first keynote lecture (9.00 or 9.30). The poster area will be open at 8.00 am.
- For the afternoon interactive sessions, the posters should be hung during the lunch break but no later than 15 minutes before the start of the session.
- Posters should be taken down immediately after the end of the interactive session. If posters are not taken down, the support staff will do this and will bring them to the registration desk.
- Pushpins will be provided to hang your posters and support staff is available to assist you if you need help.
- Hang your poster at the poster board with a number that matches your poster number in PaperPlaza (e.g. if you have poster number TuA4.4, you should hang your poster at poster board 4).
Instructions to send your teaser presentations
To streamline the teaser presentations at the start of the interactive sessions, you should use the laptop available at the session location (Windows 10, MS Powerpoint 2016, with presenter view) as there is no time to switch computers between presenters.
- Please upload your teaser presentation 24 hours before the start of your interactive session.
