Oral and Poster Instructions

All authors presenting their work in an oral session are required to prepare a PowerPoint presentation of their paper, to be emailed to the Symposium Organising Secretariat at papers@sardiniasymposium.it no later than 27th September 2019.
Oral presentations should last 15 minutes, while workshop presentations should last 10 minutes as they form the basis for detailed discussion among participants.
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 chairman 15 minutes before the beginning of the session in which their paper is to be presented. The chairman 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 duty member in the Speakers’ Room will be on hand for all requirements. A PC will be available for speakers use and priority will be given in line with session timetable. The computer in the speakers’ room may not be used to prepare the presentation, but only to make last-minute changes or a final check.


The Organizing Secretariat of the Sardinia 2019 Symposium 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 6th September 2019. Posters must be A0 (841x1189 mm) vertical format and written using large letters as they should be legible from a distance of at least one meter. Under no circumstances may posters contain any kind of advertising or commercial propaganda. 

Supplementary materials (such as short videos, ppt files or pdf files) intended to accompany poster presentation may also be submitted by the same deadline: materials received will be made available to all conference delegates by means of a user-friendly augmented reality app.

In addition to displaying a poster, authors who would like to discuss in details the nature and impact of their research/project, illustrated on the printed poster, may produce a short video explaining their ideas and work.
Those videos will be featured on a dedicated YouTube channel and will be pushed out through our social media channels and website.
This is a great opportunity to share your ideas in a more engaging way to a wider audience and increase the reach of your project.
