Oral presentations

For each oral presentation, a slot of 25 minutes in total is available. Note that this includes time for questions from the audience, and for switching between speakers; therefore, make sure your presentation lasts at most 20 minutes, so that a few minutes are available for questions.
NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING A LAPTOP. Each room has a laptop and a beamer. Please bring your presentation (in PDF or Powerpoint format) on a memory stick, and place it on the laptop before the start of the session. If you do need your own laptop to give your presentation, please request this by email in advance.
