ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting

Your Presentation

General guidelines

Before you pack your luggage and travel to Brazil, take some time to think about your contribution, please. Remember that the official language of the conference is English – therefore, all presentations and discussion will use that language. If you feel any difficulty with the use of English, do your best and try to obtain help well in advance of the meeting.

The conference organization requires a strict compliance to the timetable. All speakers should present their papers in 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for discussion. Out of respect for the public and the other speakers, we ask you to observe the time limits, beginning and finishing your presentation in good time.

For oral presentation, the conference organization will provide computers with Internet access and data-show projectors. All computers available for presentation use the Windows operational system. You should bring your presentation (PowerPoint, PDF, etc.) in a pen-drive, in a format compatible with Windows. Connection of private notebooks to the projectors will not be allowed, because of technical reasons (there may be delays and incompatibility).

People who are going to present posters should carefully prepare and print their work before arriving to the conference. The standard size of posters is A0, that is, 118.9 cm high x 84.1 cm wide, or 46.8 inches high x 33.1 inches wide.

It is highly desirable that you provide you full text, in PDF form, to the public attending the conference. This will make possible a deeper and more fruitful discussion of your contribution. The deadline for uploading the full paper is one week before the beginning of the conference, because it will be necessary to prepare special web pages with links to each PDF file.

Additional tips concerning the presentation of your paper are described in the following separate complementary pages:
