Presenters (i.e., first authors) must be registered and have paid the congress registration fees by 28 April 2023 to guarantee publication of their abstract in the Book of Abstracts. Late registrations will lead to an exclusion of the abstract and an exclusion from the scientific programme.
Invited presentations are presented by invited speakers in PowerPoint format (16:9). Each speaker has 20 minutes to give their presentation, leaving 5 minutes for a short introduction and discussion after each presentation. Exact timings are left to the discretion of the chair but must not exceed 75 minutes. Invited presentations must be pre-uploaded in the Speakers Ready Room one day in advance of your presentation (e.g. Wednesday morning for presentations on Wednesday afternoon). The use of your own laptop or USB is not permitted. Abstracts need to be submitted according to the defined standards of the ECSS and within the given abstract submission deadline before 15 February 2023.
Oral presentation format is PowerPoint (16:9). Oral presentation time is 10 minutes plus 5 minutes of discussion. Oral presentations must be pre-uploaded in the Speakers Ready Room (it is located next to the registration and opens at 07:30 am) one day in advance of your presentation (e.g. Wednesday morning for presentations on Wednesday afternoon). The use of your own laptop or USB is not permitted. Included videos are not allowed in the oral presentation, only external links.
Conventional print poster (debated)
The size for conventional print posters is A0 (height: 120 cm, width 90 cm). The poster format is portrait. The poster presentation time will be three minutes plus two minutes of discussion. Poster presentations do not require any PowerPoint presentations. All posters shall be put up on the morning of the presentation at the established poster boards and all posters need to be removed in the evening. Pre-upload is NOT required.
E-poster (not debated)
The format requires a pre-upload of an e-poster in pdf format (one slide only) in landscape (horizontal) orientation (140 cm (55 in) width x 79 cm (31 in) height). The e-poster must be pre-uploaded in advance of the congress via your ECSS account. Abstracts accepted in this format will be published in the Book of Abstracts. At the same time, the e-poster will be made available online and on-screen. The e-poster format can be accessed at any time during the congress, using widescreen TV's located in the general e-poster area. There is, therefore, no formal presentation time, and no formalised discussion time. If discussion is required, presenters will be contacted directly (by email) by interested parties.
