The following are the guidelines we have considered for the presentations on the panels:

  • Every panel will be composed of a variable number of presenters and a chair.
  • Every participant will have strictly 15 minutes to present his or her work (the chair will act as time keeper).
  • After all the presentations a round of questions and comments will take place.
  • As time is tight, it is suggested that the presenters focus on the important aspects of their papers rather than contextual information.
  • Please inform us as soon as possible about any technical support you require.
