Type of presentation


III. Type of Presentation: Paper, Poster/Exhibit

The type of presentation you plan will also have implications for the information you include in the Long Description.

Oral Presentation 

Accepted papers will be organized into thematic sessions and, while the preparation for your presentation may be different for these two formats, the content of your proposal should include all of the elements of a research, practice, or theory-focused work listed in the proposal submission form.

Please note that no template is required for oral in person presentation. Participants should be ready in the presentation hall at least 10 minutes before the beginning of the session. Authors should introduce themselves to the session chair and upload their Power Point presentations to the computer. Every session hall is equipped with a Computer running on Windows 7 Operating System, connected to a projector with typical softwares installed, including Microsoft Office 2007. Time of presentation is about 15 minutes for each author in oral presentation, including discussion. Conference Materials will be distributed at the end of each session.

Virtual Presentation

The ICSD has instituted a virtual presentation system to allow the authors of accepted papers the same publication opportunities as regular presenters. A research work submitted without the participant attending the Conference in person, but presented in the Conference Program and published (if accepted) in the conference proceedings and EJSD Journal.

In addition to your written proposal included in the proceedings, authors selected for virtual presentation will be asked to produce a power point presentation, that will be displayed in the exposition area at the conference. The presentation should clearly describe the type of information that will be displayed. The presentation should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract and should meet the minimum following criteria:

Title: The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract.

The authors’ names and their affiliations: Your usual contact details (e.g. an email address) to allow delegates to follow up discussion

Size: The power point presentation should not exceed 10MB of size. It can be more than one page.

Please check on the Conference program in which session your virtual session is scheduled.

Deadline for Virtual presentation Submission: 25 August 2019.

Poster/Exhibit 

In addition to your written proposal included in the proceedings, authors selected for a poster presentation will be asked to produce and bring along a printed poster for display in the poster area at the conference. Generally most appropriate for "practice-focused" works (or works in progress), a poster/exhibit proposal may concentrate on one aspect, for example, "description of the practical application".  The proposal should clearly describe the type of information (or product) that will be displayed. The poster should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract and should meet the minimum following criteria:

Title: The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract.

The authors’ names and their affiliations: Your usual contact details (e.g. an email address) to allow delegates to follow up discussion

Size: The poster must be 50cm x 70cm format and portrait style orientation.

The area for posters will be at the Ariosto Hall. Please check on the Conference program in which session your poster is scheduled. We are offering a free poster printing service for the conference, the latest date to submit art work is 10 July 2019. Delegates that submit after this date, should produce and bring along their posters.

Deadline for Poster Submission: 10 July 2019.
