Presenting authors instructions
1. Please make your presence known to one of the chairmen 5 minutes before your session starts and be present during the entire session in which your presentation is scheduled. Time slot for plenary sessions is 60 minutes, including room switching time of 15 minutes.
2. Time slots for oral sessions are 90 minutes. Number of papers in each session is up to 6 meaning that 15 minutes is allocated for each presentation. However, there are exceptions to this rule; therefore, please refer to the final program for actual duration of your presentation.
3. Authors and Speakers must report to the Speakers Area in order to preview and upload their presentations. Files must be handed-in a minimum of 2 hours prior to the start of their session (for morning sessions starting at 9.30h please upload it the day before). We recommend that you take advantage of the early file uploading opportunity. More details will be available soon.
4. All session rooms will be equipped with a data projector and a computer. You do not need to bring your own laptop to the lecture room. Please prepare your presentations for display with aspect ratio 4:3.
5. When building your presentation, use standard fonts (e.g., Times New Roman, Arial, etc.). Basic fonts are included on the session room PC computers, but if an unusual font is used it may not display well.
6. Even if you have submitted your presentation files in advance, please plan to bring the latest version of your presentation to the session on a Windows-readable USB flash Drive or CD-ROM.
7. Computers in conference rooms are equipped with Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2010 package. Apple Mac computers will not be provided in any of the session rooms. If you are using Mac, please check compatibility with Microsoft Office 2010 package or use your own Mac computer if your presentation is created in Apple’s “Keynote” presentation application. Videos handed in as an independent file must be coded under standard codec. Users are recommended to preview them in standard universal software, such as VLC Player or Quicktime.
Poster sessions are a valuable method for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. Therefore, it is important that you display your results clearly to attract people who have an interest in your work and your paper. Your poster should cover the KEY POINTS of your work. The ideal poster is designed to: attract attention; provide a brief overview of your work; initiate discussion and questions.
Use color to highlight and make your poster more attractive, by using pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather than only text wherever possible.
There is however no specific template for the poster: font size and text are free.
Maximum outside dimensions of each poster, including the title, must not exceed 90 cm width x 120 cm height.
SET UP AND DISMANTLING TIMES:
A poster number display will be placed at the top corner of the board. Double sided tape will be supplied at each poster board.
Student workshop aims to provide a platform for graduate students in the area of medical and biological engineering and thereby enable them to present their ongoing research efforts. The platform also provides a unique opportunity for students to network with other young researchers as well as more experienced scientist, receive constructive feedback, guidance, tips, and learn about cutting-edge research problems that are currently underway in the community.
We encourage graduate students to submit abstracts ofearly-stage research efforts as well as of more advanced, dissertation-level projects.
Social program will include a conference dinner and a student party.
