ORAL presentations

Oral presentations should be prepared in MS Powerpoint format (.ppt or .pptx). The preferred format for the power point presentations is 16:9 (as opposed to 4:3).

The presenting authors are asked to adhere to their time limits (see below).

Keynote lectures (on invitation) will have 40 min, i.e., 30-35 min to present and 10 min for discussion.

Invited presentations  will have 20 min, i.e., 15-16 min to present and 4 min for discussion. Invited presentations are presented within a session and introduce/review the specific area addressed by the session.

Regular oral presentations will have 15 min, i.e., 12-13 min to present and 2-3 min for discussion.

Flash oral presentations will have 5 min, i.e., 4 min to present and 1 min to get to podium (with no question period).


During the conference, a jury with the help of the session chairpersons will judge and rank all graduate student oral presentations. At the closing ceremony of the conference, the three best oral presentations by a student will be announced and awarded.
