18th INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON WASTE MANAGEMENT
AND SUSTAINABLE LANDFILLING / 11-15 OCTOBER 2021

Oral and Poster Instructions

ORAL PRESENTATIONS

All authors presenting their work in an oral session are required to prepare a PowerPoint presentation of their paper, to be emailed to the Organising Secretariat at papers@sardiniasymposium.it no later than 4th October 2021.
Oral presentations should last 10-15 minutes. During the presentation company advertising should be avoided. Presence of authors’ affiliations or company logos should be very discreet.
On site, speakers should contact the Chairs 15 minutes before the beginning of the session in which their paper is to be presented. The Chair will be available in the conference hall where the session is to take place. Speakers should be present at the conference table from the beginning of the session and remain for the entire duration. If your allotted time runs out during your presentation, do not under any circumstances hurry to finish the entire presentation but go straight to the conclusions. To this regard, it may be of use to prepare a slide illustrating the conclusions in a synthesized version.
A member of our staff will be available in the Speakers’ Room for last-minute check, changes and all requirements.

Online presenters will deliver their oral presentation via Zoom on our virtual platform. They will be able to easily share their screen in order to show their slides and present their work to both the in-person and online audience. The Chair, with the help of our staff member, will moderate the questions coming from both the on-site public and the online participants.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS

The Organizing Secretariat is prepared to print, at no extra cost to the authors, the hard copy of all posters listed in the conference programme. This facility is offered to facilitate authors during their journey to reach the Symposium and, at the same time, to allow the Organizers to complete set up of the poster hall before the conference begins.
To this regard, we kindly ask authors to send their poster (as PDF file) to papers@sardiniasymposium.it no later than 10th September 2021. Posters size must be A0 portrait oriented (width: 841 mm, height: 1189 mm) and written using large letters as they should be easily readable from a distance of at least one meter. Under no circumstances may posters contain any kind of advertising or commercial propaganda.

All posters will be continuously accessible in a dedicated hall and discussed in the presence of authors on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon from 16:30 to 17:00.
In order to make the poster discussion available to both in-person and online attendees, we kindly ask authors to prepare a short video presentation discussing their poster and send it to us within 4th October 2021. The videos will be uploaded on our virtual platform, so that all attendees will be able to watch the presentations.
