Presentations Instructions

Oral Presentations

The SCINT conference tradition is to have all talks in plenary session.

Regular Oral presentations should be 12 minutes long, plus 3 minutes for question and answer, for a total of 15 minutes. Invited Orals will be 24 minutes plus 6 minutes for questions. The session chairs will have to keep their sessions running on time, so we thank our speakers in advance for their cooperation.

To avoid losing precious time to computer and projector-interface issues, we will provide a projection computer in the room, and we ask that all presentations be loaded onto it at least half a day before the session begins.

The projection computers will be equipped with PowerPoint and Acrobat Reader.

Poster Presentations

Poster Dimensions

Most plotters with A0 PORTRAIT size (841 mm x 1189 mm) rolls of paper will produce a poster that fits nicely in this area. Pushpins, and other small office supplies, will be provided.

The poster sessions will be held from 10:00 to 11:00 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (3 sessions). Please follow the times for setup and removal of your poster as indicated here under:

  Poster Setup Presentation Poster Removal
Session #1 Monday


10:00- 11:00

Session #2 Tuesday

Session #3 Wednesday


10:00- 11:00


Simply printing out a Proceedings manuscript does not work very well. A poster is rhetorically and visually different—more like a slide presentation than a journal article. The lettering should be easily readable from 1 meter away.

A Poster is a Presentation, Not Just an Object

Including a photo of yourself in the top corner of the poster allows interested attendees to easily find you during the conference and facilitate networking. One of the authors, or a colleague who is registered for the conference and who can speak knowledgeably about the material, must be physically near the poster throughout the session.

Scheduling for Poster Presentations

The timing and location of poster sessions will be shown in the table of sessions on the Program page of this website. We will provide a place to store posters in the morning so that you don't have to carry them around all day.
