Talks, posters and proceedings

Plenary talks

IDM2020 will have (invited) plenary talks in the morning. Those talks last 25+5min and should draw a broad picture of the respective subject, understandable and of interest for all IDM participants. 

Parallel sessions

We foresee three parallel sessions at IDM, grouped according to topics. Parallel session talks will be 17+3min. We will encourage the chairs to be strict on the timing to allow switching between sessions (the rooms are very close to each other).

Young scientist talks

For young scientists (maximal four years after PhD) we offer another format, namely short talks (8+2min) in the parallel sessions. Please note, that this is an additional offer for young scientists. They may also apply for standard-length parallel talks and posters.


Participants may contribute to IDM by presenting their work in a poster. Posters will be on display the full week, at dedicated poster session(s) participants will be able to meet the poster authors. 

For poster presenters: How to prepare your poster

Poster contributions should be of size A0 and portrait orientation (Width=841mm, Height=1189mm) with some tolerance.

The posters will be on display during the whole week. Please make sure to provide your poster on Monday, the first day of the conference.

The poster walls will be labelled such that you will find the proper place for your poster. We will provide tape to attach your poster.


We will have peer-reviewed proceedings for IDM2020 published open access in SciPost. Proceedings for plenary talks are foreseen to have a page limit of 6 pages, parallel session talks and posters of 4 pages.
