Guidelines for presentations

1. Posters

The content of an effective Poster presentation should be clear, focused and concise.


Posters should use letters that can be easily read when in front of them. The use of large and bold letters is recommended for the title, authors' names and affiliations. The author presenting the poster should stand out. Authors are recommended to avoid using too many texts and to use bulleted lists for results and conclusions. Tables and figures are good ways to divide the poster. Recommended headings for posters include Objectives, Introduction, Methods, Results and Conclusions. It is recommended that authors bring copies (paper or electronic) for interested attendees. It is recommended to place the poster number in the upper right corner for easy identification.

The evaluation criteria will be based on:

  • Scientific rigor
  • Originality of the approach
  • Ability to synthesize the poster and the oral presentation
  • Graphic and compositional quality
  • Ability to communicate the poster and the oral presentation.
  • Each poster will have a specific day for presentation.

2. Oral presentations

Oral presenters get 7 minutes for presentation, with 3 additional minutes for questions and switching between presentations. Therefore, you should not spend too much time introducing a topic. You will be asked to be strict about time.
