Format of oral and poster presentations
The Poster Sessions will take place at the entrance hall of the Geosciences Institute. All posters need to be displayed on May 13th from 7:30am to 8:30am, and from 01:00pm to 01:30pm. Material to place the posters on the boards will be provided.
When submitting abstracts, authors can choose whether their contribution will be a poster or an oral presentation. However, the choice made is a preference and is not binding.
The Scientific Committee of BioFom will assess the submitted abstracts and determine whether they are accepted for oral or poster presentation, according to the available slots. Each author can submit a maximum of two abstracts (only 1 oral presentation per registered participant is allowed).
Authors are kindly requested to prepare their oral presentations using Microsoft Power Point (preferentially Windows 7 - PC version). Keynote lectures will have a duration of 30 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions. The other oral presentations will have a duration of 12 minutes plus 3 minutes for questions.
Posters format should be portrait A0 (841 mm wide x 1189 mm high). Posters can be placed on the boards in the morning of the day of presentation (material to pin the posters will be provided). We kindly request authors to attend their assigned poster session.
