We have filled all the oral presentations slots, but we have still space for a few more posters.  If you would like to submit one please contact the local organising committee (contact details at the end of the page).

Format of the oral presentations

Invited talks should last 25 minutes with 5 minutes for questions, contributed talks 15 minutes with 5 minutes for questions.   The presentations should be in either powerpoint or pdf format if you wish to use the lecture theatre bench PC.  Otherwise, it will also be possible to connect your laptop (but please bring your own VGA adaptor if your laptop has a different video output).

The maximum size is A0 for portrait and A1 for landscape layout.
