Poster, Oral and Flash Talk Presentation Details
There will be afternoon poster sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the conference from 17:30-19:30. There will be no poster session on Friday afternoon. Posters should be put up from lunch time on the day of presentation. The materials required to attach each poster to the board will be supplied. Posters should be removed between 19:30-20:00 on the day of presentation. Posters not collected by these times will be removed by the conference organizers and recycled.
The posters will be displayed in the Exhibition Hall and Entrance Foyer. Poster board numbers are given in the Program Volume and on the web site.
The poster boards are large enough to fit a size A0 poster in portrait orientation (this is 33.1" wide x 46.8" tall or 841mm wide x 1189mm tall). Oversize posters will not be displayed.
The poster sessions are from 17:30 to 19:30. Delegates should expect to be available by their poster for most of this time on the day of their presentation. If there will be any time during this period when no author can be present, a card should be left indicating when the author will next be present.
No photography or videoing is permitted at any of the poster sessions without the permission of the authors of the poster.
Sessions with oral presentations will take place from Monday to Friday from 08.30-11.30 and 14.30-17.30.
Delegates who have prepared their presentation early may upload the talk through the Goldschmidt website. Simply log in, go to 'My Purchases' and next to your abstract click on the button 'Upload Presentation'. If your abstract was submitted by another person then the abstract will appear in their purchases and must also be uploaded through their account. This functionality is available until Saturday, 16 August 23:59 CET. Alternatively for standard talks, you may upload your talk in the room on the day of your presentation. Presenters can upload from 08:00 to 08:30 in the morning before the sessions, or between 14:00 and 14:30 before the afternoon session. All presenting authors will be sent an email including a link to the page to upload their presentation and detailed instructions on how to upload. We do recommend that all standard talk presenters bring their talk on a USB as well, for their own peace of mind.
Delegates making preparations for their presentations with Windows 10, should be sure to use Office / PowerPoint 2016, and or Adobe Reader. Delegates who have prepared their presentations using Apple Keynote should ensure the presentation has been converted to PDF or PowerPoint before uploading. The recommended aspect ratio is 16:9 with a resolution of 1920 x 1020. Use only standard fonts (such as Arial), because your own special fonts are not installed on our computers and can therefore not be depicted correctly. Embed your fonts with all characters.
Speakers should arrive at their allocated room no less than 20 minutes before the start of the first presentation in order to meet with the chairperson. All presentations must be given in English, which is the official language of the Conference. Oral presentations are allocated 15 minutes and keynote talks either 15 or 30 minutes. 15-minute talks should be finished after 12 minutes, and 30-minute keynotes after 25 minutes, to leave time for discussion. The chairperson will give a first signal after 10 minutes, a warning after 12 minutes and prevent further talking after 15 minutes. It is essential for the success of the conference that the speakers keep strictly to this scheme to ensure that all parallel sessions are synchronized.
There is no speaker ready room.
Delegates are required to mute or turn off their cell phones and pagers during oral presentations. No photography or videoing is permitted in any of the oral sessions or at poster sessions without the permission of the relevant oral presenter or authors of the poster. Please also respect the wishes of presenters who prefer that their results are not published on social media.
Flash Talk Presentation
All Flash Talk presentations must be given in English, which is the official language of the Conference. Flash talks are allocated 5 minutes. Talks should be finished after 4 minutes, to leave time for speaker transfer. The chairperson will give a first signal after 3 minutes and prevent further talking after 4 minutes. Speakers must keep strictly to these timings to ensure that those attending the talks get to see the presentations they came for.
