Oral presentation and submission

Guidelines for oral presentation

Accepted oral contributions will be notified by October 9th (see Key dates). Talks will be time limited to 12-15 minutes (to be confirmed), including a short discussion with the opportunity to take questions from the audience.

Online presenters will be allowed to send a pre-recorded video of their talk as a backup option should there be any problems with the connection at the scheduled time and date, or if they express a preference for this option over a live delivery. In any case, if possible online presenters should strive to be connected at their time slot to answer questions in the Q&A session.

Guidelines for abstract submission

Abstracts of the oral contributions, with a maximum length of 300 words, must be written in English using the templates provided here (docx or odt format). Please do not introduce any format changes to ensure the uniformity of the submissions.
