Notes for Presenters 

Spoken Papers

The time allocated for spoken papers is 20 minutes, with a further 5 minutes for questions and 5 minutes for changeovers. Due to the busy conference schedule, it is important that sessions keep to time; therefore, session Chairs have been instructed to cut short any papers that overrun their al­lotted time. Speakers should ensure that their equipment needs are met before the start of the ses­sion. Conference rooms will be open 30 minutes before each session, and an assistant will be available to offer help as required.

Poster Presentations

Posters will be displayed on Thursday, 31 August, and Friday, 01 September. Each poster has been allocated an area with A0-portrait dimensions (W 841 x H 1189 mm). Posters should be mounted on their assigned day during the morning break period at 10:00. Assistants will be on hand to provide push pins for attaching posters to the boards. The period from 10:30-11:30 on both days has been specifically set aside for delegates to view posters. No other sessions will take place at this time, and presenters are required to be by their posters to answer questions. Posters will also be available for viewing during the lunch break on their assigned day.
