Oral and Poster Preparation



All oral presentations will have 20 minutes, including 5 minutes of discussion. Authors and session chair persons are asked to strictly follow these time limits. You are expected to notify the session chair person of your presence just before the start of the session so that she/he knows you are present.

Presentations must be made in Electronic Form (PowerPoint, PDF). Computerized projection facilities will be offered for oral presentations, including an LCD projector, a computer and a screen. If you need to make changes or withdraw your abstract/title from the program before the conference, please contact abs.jda2018@ctn.tecnico.ulisboa.pt.

Presentations from Personal Laptops will not be allowed. All speakers are required to submit an electronic version of their presentation by 8:00 pm of the day prior to their presentation. Presentations must be submitted in Microsoft Power Point format (but may be saved as a PDF). It is strongly recommended that speakers save their Power Point presentations with True Type fonts attached. Acceptable transfer media include: CD and USB flashdrive (memory sticks). All presentations will be scanned for viruses and subsequently loaded on the main projector computer for the following day presentations. Authors are strongly encouraged to bring an additional electronic copy for added security against unanticipated software/hardware anomalies.

Presentations prepared on platforms other than Windows (Mac, etc.) should be checked by the Author for compatibility with the Windows Platform prior to the presentation. Animations and movies in Microsoft Windows Media file (wmf) and DivX format will be possible.



All posters are required to conform to Portrait Orientation. Failure to follow this requirement will mean that the poster will not fit on the allotted board.

Poster Board dimensions are 0.90 m wide x 1.10-1.30 m high. If printing on a single page, use size A0 PORTRAIT ORIENTATION (0.84 x 1.19 m). Alternatively, a number of smaller sheets can be used to create a larger collage, but do not go beyond a maximum 'layout' height of 1.1m. The Organization will provide boards and materials to fix your poster.
