All presenters are expected to register and pay the registration fee to attend the conference in accordance with the general registration policy. The registration will open the 15th of February and close the 15th of May 2016.
The length of the each parallel session will be approximately two hours. The suggested number of presententations in a session consisting of traditional workshop papers is 4-5. Each presentation will last for approximately 20 minutes. A presentation should include a 15 minute talk and 5 minutes discussion. If a session includes fewer presentations than 5, each presentation will be assigned more time. Each session will have a coordinator. The coordinator will be designated by the Organizing Committee and will be responsible for time compliance.
All posters should be in the A0 vertical format. Posters should include a title, authors’ names and affiliations, a short theoretical background, hypotheses, method, results and conclusions. The title should reflect the content of the poster and match the abstract submission. The text should be brief throughout. Any description of methods should be simple and concise. Individual posters will be exhibited for one day. Each poster occupies one poster board for the entire day. The author will be asked to stand by the poster 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the afternoon (information about time-period will be announced at a later point).
The official language of the conference is English. Both oral presentations and posters shall be in English.
