E-Posters

General Information

Poster Presenters are requested to prepare e-posters.
  • Electronic Posters or E-Posters are similar to traditional paper posters, but displayed on-site on a large LCD screen.
  • Anyone will be able to use the touchscreen on the LCD television screen to search and view an abstract of their choice.
WHY E-POSTER DISPLAY?
  • E-Posters are modern, attractive and innovative way to display traditional paper posters.
  • E-Posters save space and cost of printing paper.
  • Easy to find abstracts that interest you. Finding a poster in a large hall can be difficult, but with E-Posters display, anyone can easily search for a poster by title, author, and track and issue code on the LCD television screen.

Presentations in WCPM Space

Important
  • If you are not able to present your talk for any reason, you are kindly requested to contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. immediately and to notify them of any change of presenter or withdrawal.
Speaking Time
The chairpersons of your session will be strict in allowing no more than the time allotted to your paper. Remember to allow some time for the changeover of speakers and chairperson's introduction, and for questions and discussion.
  • For 5 minutes slots (in concurrent sessions) a maximum of 3 minutes speaking time + 2 minutes discussion.
Please rehearse your talk to make sure it will fit comfortably into the available time.
Please note that, as a rule, presenters can show a (final) slide with all acknowledgements, however, in view of the short time available, names cannot be read to the audience.
Projection and Technical Setting
PowerPoint is the only communication tool available in all session halls.
Presenters are kindly asked to use the computers provided by the congress in the WCPM Space (in the Exhibition área).
  • The PowerPoint handling and distribution system is optimized for MS PowerPoint 2013 (Office 2013) and “*.pdf” (Adobe Acrobat)-files. The uploading of  “DVD-Movies” is not supported.
  • The supported data media are: CD, DVD (as Data-storage-medium) and USB-Memory Key. You may want to carry a second key/CD as a back-up in case there is any insoluble technical problem.
  • The fonts that are used in the presentations should be "Latin-based fonts“. If the speaker needs special fonts, they should be stored as "embedded fonts“ with the presentation (File -> save as "name of presentation“ and under "tools“ ->save options mark the checkbox "embed True type fonts“ and select "embed all characters“).
  • When using mathematical symbols please use these which are available under Latin fonts (unicode or DOS: Western Europe). These can be shown without any problems in Office 2013.  
  • Presentations should be saved as "*.ppt“, “*.pptx” ( = PowerPoint) or "*.pps“,*.ppsx“ (=PowerPoint Slideshow)
These guidelines should be seen as a matter of improving the effectiveness of the WCPM Space and in consequence also the speakers comfort.
General hints and tips
Like all of us, you will have sat through many conference talks, some good and some bad. We have all been to talks which failed to communicate their message because the speaker spoke impossibly fast, perhaps in a very indistinct way, or flashed through large numbers of slides so crammed with detail that nobody could follow them. So please:
  • Make yourself known to the chairpersons and/or the WCPM assistant in your session before the beginning of the session.
  • Remember that the vast majority of the audience are not native English speakers - speak clearly (whether or not English is your native language) and not too fast.  
  • Plan an average of no more than 1 slide per minute, in most cases.  
  • Keep your Powerpoints simple. In text slides, use no more than seven lines per slide, with ample space between the lines, and no more than seven words per line in suitably large lettering.  
  • Leave sufficient space between the text and the edge of the slide/screen. Some data projectors may not display the very border of the slide/presentation.
