Presentation Format

Make sure to upload your presentation prior to the conference by logging into your account.

Paper Presentations. Each session has four to five papers. To reserve time for questions and general discussion from attendees, presenters in sessions with

  • four papers will have a 19-minute time allowance for each presentation, and
  • five papers will have a 15-minute time allowance for each presentation.
     

Send your presentation/paper to your session chair (www.bigsurv18.org/program2018), no later than Wednesday, 10 October. Make sure to arrive 10–15 minutes prior to your scheduled presentation time to upload your presentation (via a USB flash drive). More detailed guidelines for paper presenters can be found here. Note: With the exception of the Auditorium please prepare for a 4:3 format (i.e., a 1024x768 resolution).

 

Session Chairs. As a Session Chair, you will be responsible for introducing the presenting authors before their paper presentations, ensuring adequate timing of presentations and discussions, and facilitating and moderating questions in your session. More detailed guidelines for session chairs can be found here.

 

Poster Presentations. Your poster will be on display in the Exhibition Hall in the Mercè Rodoreda building. Do not exceed the poster size limit (2m x 1m [height and width]). 

  • For the poster presentations on Friday prepare to actively present during the dedicated poster session (11:30 – 13:00).
