Speakers' and Poster Instructions

Scientific presentations will be held either as oral presentation or by poster. Presentations can be held in German language or in English language (conference language). For further information please contact the division in which you have submitted the lecture or the poster.

Oral Presentations

Usually, presentations will have the following durations. For exact information, please refer to your division.

  • Contributed talks are 15 minutes including discussion and speaker change(12 min talk + 3 min discussion/speaker change)
  • Invited talks are 30 minutes including discussion and speaker change (25 min talk + 5 min discussion/speaker change)
  • Plenary presentations are 45 minutes without discussion

Lecturers are requested to provide their presentations electronically. All lecture rooms are equipped with a projector (“beamer”) with VGA input. The projectors mainly display in the 4:3 format. However they are compatible with the 16:9, limited to the display width. Some newer systems also work directly with 16:9. OHPs are not available.

Laptops must be provided by the speakers as well as all associated adapters (e.g. HDMI to VGA, Apple-adapter). Furthermore, the presentation should be recorded onto an USB stick as back-up in PDF and power point format.

All laptops must be set up and connected with the data projector before the start of the respective session. All rooms will be opened, at latest, 30 minutes prior to the lecture. Speakers are requested to be in the lecture room at least 25 minutes prior to the start of the session, to report to the chairperson as well as the technical staff, to ensure that the laptops handshake with the beamer, and to receive a brief introduction to the equipment in the lecture room. There will be a “speakers ready room” available in the Main Building in room H 1036.


The poster boards will be marked with the number according to the scientific program. Authors are asked to mount their poster before their session. Each poster should display the number according to the scientific program. Each poster should be no larger than 85 cm x 120 cm. (A0 portrait format).

For the mounting of the poster please use the prepared “power strip” at the poster frame or contact the available student staff. Please make sure to use only power strips for mounting the poster (residue-free removing). The presenting authors should be at hand for discussion at their poster during at least half of the poster session and should note this time at the poster.
