Presenter Instructions

All of the contents of presentations, including plenary lecture, oral and poster presentations, must be unclassified. The Program Committee and Local Organizing Committee are not responsible for the presented contents. Topics beyond academics are beyond the scope of ICDERS.

Oral Presentations

Presentations should last no longer than 20 minutes to allow 5 minutes for questions and changeover to the next speaker. All screens are in widescreen (16:9) format. Each presenter is strongly encouraged to arrive at the assigned conference room a minimum of 10 minutes before the commencement of the session to meet with the session chair.

Each speaker is requested to bring along with them the presentation on a USB pen and to upload the presentation in the room which is assigned to his/her presentation at least 1 hour before the session starts.

Audio-Visual Equipment

Presentation rooms are equipped with projectors for computer-based presentations. Presentations should be prepared in PowerPoint or PDF. Presenters will be provided with a remote controller, with integrated laser pointer, that can be used to advance slides in PowerPoint. Slides with movies (format .MOV or MP4) must be checked for playback on the laptop.

For Mac users: Power Point slides are normally compatible. If you use “Keynote” please take care that the file is converted in PDF.

The use of one’s personal Laptop is not allowed

Poster Sessions

Posters are presented in the Main Foyer in front of the Main Room (Aula Magna). Posters are to be printed at the cost of the author(s) and to be brought already printed (Format A0 Portrait). Each participant for poster presentation will be provided with pins or self-adhesive tape. Posters can be displayed all day of the assigned session. The poster must be removed at the end of the session day. At least one co-author should be available to present the poster during the coffee break time.

Virtual presentations

In the effort to maintain the 28th ICDERS as an in-person event (with the consequence to have postponed it by one year), the possibility to present remotely has been reserved exclusively for participants coming from countries where restrictions to travel are still imposed by their authorities as measures to limit the COVID-19.

Those joining the Conference remotely will receive a Zoom Meeting personal link for each session room. When you are an “auditor” please enter the link whenever you wish and you will be connected with the room of your choice. When you are “presenter” please make sure to enter the room at least 10 minutes before the start of the session. In both cases make sure to enter the room with microphone and camera OFF and please turn them on when it is your turn to talk.
