Instructions for presenters

The Projector is set to present the 16:9 format


Four types of presentations are offered during the 12th Biometal:

Keynote (K)

On invitation only, 30 minutes including 5 minutes (minimum) discussions. Keynote speakers are allowed to connect their own computer to the audiovisual equipment.


Oral (O)

15 minutes presentations including 2-3 minutes discussion. Please keep the time. For the benefits of all, we strongly suggest limiting your presentation at 12 minutes. Oral presenters MUST upload their file and check the compatibility of the presentation with the audiovisual equipment in advance and no later than the coffee break prior to the presentation session.


Short oral presentation (SOP)

5 minutes fire presentation (NO discussion allowed). All papers presented as SOP also need to be presented as Poster for allowing discussion and foster exchanges. Shor-Oral Poster presenters MUST upload their file and check the compatibility of the presentation with the audiovisual equipment in advance, and no later than the coffee break prior to the presentation session. We suggest SOP presenters to limit their slides to 5, and include title, context/approach, goal(s) of the work, and the main original result(s). SOPs are also assigned a poster (P) number, to which presenters should refer when attaching their poster to the board.


Poster (P)

Poster Size: A0 – vertical, 1189 mm height / 841 mm width.

Posters are expected to generate discussion between participants during all 13th Biometal 2021. All registered participants are offered to bring a poster to enhance the chance and the potential to show and discuss their work in the field even out of the allowed poster hours. Posters will be displayed and available for generating a basis of discussion and exchange during coffee breaks, afternoon breaks, and nights. Posters will be accessible from morning to late night. Tables and chairs will be available to attendees to seat, share and discuss further. Please prepare your poster to stimulate questions, exchanges, provide ideas and breakthrough in the field. We strongly suggest presenters to include or bring a photo of themselves to be put up next to the poster so to facilitate interactions between participants. Tools for fixation will be provided onsite.

A 10 minutes pre-recorded video presentation must be made so that it is available from the online program. This is the method through which virtual participants will be able to view the posters. Poster presenters must also make an email address available so that Virtual participants can contact them to be able to dicuss their work.
