Information for Presenters

Presentation of Oral Papers

Numbers in front of the paper titles indicate the number of abstract shown in Abstract book where abstracts will be sorted chronologically.  All oral presentations will be made in specific sessions, some of them introduced by a keynote.  The total time allocated to each paper is 15 minutes but you should allow 3-5 minutes of these for discussion, so aim the time of your talk to 10-12 minutes.

For much of the time, there will be one or two parallel sessions.  There will be three lecture rooms -   Zenit, Nadir and Taurus, all located in the same conference area so it is very easy to move between them.  Each of the rooms will also be used for workshops as indicated in the programme. Therefore it is absolutely essential that speakers keep to the time schedule and do not exceed the time allocated to them.  Chairpersons are under strict instruction to stop any presentation that is running over time.

Please check your presentations in the Speakers’ preview room at least twenty-four hours before your presentation is due, to ensure that the technical staff have sufficient time to pass it to the appropriate lecture theatre prior to the session in which you are presenting.


Presentation of Posters

There are some 260 registered posters.  Posters have been grouped into various sessions which will be located in the poster room, in the same conference area.

Posters will be grouped, where possible, according to subject. As poster boards will NOT EXCEED 98 cm (width) x 130 cm (height) size, posters should be prepared to fit this size, in a 'portrait' format. You are also encouraged to bring with you A4 copies of your poster presentation in order to facilitate the distribution of the information to interested delegates. Appropriate bags or boxes for these copies will be available at the bottom of each poster board.

Each poster has been allocated a number (e.g.: P-001), which appears in front of the title of that poster in the poster programme and also identifies the correct poster board.  Each abstract author was emailed their individual poster number individually.  If you are presenting a poster, you should attach your poster to the poster board with the matching code, in a way that leaves the number clearly visible.  Please do not obscure anyone else’s poster space.

Please note that posters should be mounted on Sunday afternoon or Monday morning and removed on Thursday at the end of the poster session and during the coffee break. If you are a poster author, you should personally attend your poster during the session assigned to your poster.

Remember that prizes for the best posters will be awarded during the EAFP Conference dinner on Thursday evening!


Poster Session Schedule


This scheme is to ensure that presenters are available to discuss their work at particular times.  Poster sessions are linked to the oral sessions taking place on that particular day. However, several ‘topics’ have multiple sessions (virology and immunology being examples) and we encourage participants to contact presenters individually to arrange times for more detailed discussion during other poster sessions at the conference.
