Instructions for Speakers


Your paper has been accepted as:
- Regular Paper
- Short Paper (Poster)
- PhD Forum




Instructions for regular papers:

Study the venue floor plan in advance so that you can arrive at your lecture room in time.

The duration of each presentation slot is 30 minutes. This includes the time for the actual presentation (ca. 25 minutes), and five minutes for questions from the audience. It is highly recommended that the presentation is practiced in advance, and the speech duration is scaled to be 25 minutes. Exceeding the allocated presentation time is not allowed, the session chair will cut the presentation short whenever necessary.

The presenters should arrive in their lecture room at least 15 minutes before the start of their presentation.
Lecture Room Equipment
* PC with Microsoft Windows XP
o PowerPoint 2007 and Acrobat Reader
o USB ports
* Data/video projector
o true resolution: 1024x768px
* Wireless microphone
* Laser pointer

Using the computer provided by the conference organizers is highly recommended, but a personal laptop computer (and other personal equipment) may also be used, if necessary. Note that the AC voltage in Germany is 240V, and the plug is the European type (CEE 7/4 (German 2-pin, side clip earth) or CEE 7/7 (French/German 16 A/250 V earthed)).

If you require additional A/V equipment or material, you must contact the conference organizers in advance.

Presentation Files
The name of your presentation file(s) MUST start with the session number, followed by the track letter, followed by the presentation number, followed by an underscore and the first author surname.

Example: Session 3 on Monday, Track B, second paper -> M3B2_Einstein.ppt

This naming convention will greatly simplify the distribution of the presentations to the appropriate computers, and avoid multiple files named 'FPL08.ppt'. The session numbers, track letters, and presentation numbers can be found in the conference program.

Use an USB stick to bring your presentation to the conference. You need to find your lecture room for uploading your presentation files to the PC used for your presentation.

Do not put an excessive amount of text on your slides. Generally, all text should be 18 points or larger.

Use clearly contrasting colors. Use graphics and colors to illustrate your presentation.
