Guidelines for presenters

This page contains information and guidelines for all presenters, whether it be for an oral presentation, a workshop or a poster presentation. Please read them carefully, and contact us with all your remaining questions! Also, we’d like to remind you of our language guidelines.

Oral presentations

Please note that oral presentations in the different stream sessions can be 15 minutes long, including 5 minutes Q&A. Workshops last 90 minutes.

We strongly advise all presenters to prepare their talks using PowerPoint (and not alternate presentation software). Please use standard size 4:3. A media projector with a PC laptop (not MAC) will be provided for in each conference room. Please email requests for other audio visual equipment to so that the feasibility can be determined ahead of time.

In order to avoid technical difficulties we ask you to upload your PowerPoint presentations by visiting the Ex Ordo abstract submission system. PowerPoint presentations may be uploaded under “Presentations” on the Dashboard of the abstract service (Ex Ordo). All presentation will be available on the laptop (downloaded from this website) in the conference room you’re presenting in. Only when you have given your consent, this presentation is made publicly visible to allow others to view your scientific contributions.

Poster presentations

The E-poster session is scheduled to take place Thursday, 6th April from 16:30-17:30. This time, the poster presentations are digital presentations only (no paper posters!).

All posters are presented sequentially in the parallel sessions (see the detailed programme to find your presentation slot). These short presentations are 5 minutes long (maximum), and will be strictly timed by the chair.

Posters need to be uploaded under “Presentations” on the Dashboard of the abstract service (Ex Ordo) in PowerPoint format. Posters which are not uploaded onto the system are not allowed to be presented. Uploading is possible until before the start of your session. All presentations will be available on the laptop in the conference room you are presenting in.

Additionally there will be a LCD screen in the FOYER where you can show your poster to interested colleagues during the following conference days (April 7 & 8).

As a corollary, poster presenters must register and attend the meeting for the poster to be presented.

EPATH will announce the Poster Award during the conference.
