Presentation Method

Two presentation methods are available for accepted paper authors. These are:

a) Oral Presentation

If the submission is accepted as an oral presentation, it will be allocated to the most relevant section in Congress program by the Papers Committee. The presentation format will depend on the nature of the allocated session. Authors will be advised of the details of their allocated session’s requirement when they are notified that their submission has been accepted.

b) Poster Presentation

The final poster submission’s content is to be presented in a graphic format rather than as an oral presentation. The work will be presented as an A0 poster (portrait format).

Those papers accepted for presentation as posters will be on display throughout the Congress. Authors of posters will be required to attend allocated sessions to discuss their work.
