Poster presentation

Posters will be presented during a half-day daily session (Tuesday through Thursday). Posters should be mounted before the session at their designated location and removed by the end of the session.
For the morning session posters should be mounted at 08:30 and removed at 13:15.
For the afternoon session posters should be mounted at 14:30 and removed at 19:00.
Each poster has been assigned a number and must be mounted on the appropriately numbered board. You can check the number by referring to the printed or on-line program.

Poster schedule

The author of the poster is requested to be stand by his/her poster throughout the duration of the scheduled session (please refer to the printed or on-line program for information on when your poster session is scheduled). Authors are encouraged to engage the audiences in technical discussion by making periodic presentations and answering questions.
Please report to the poster session chair at the beginning of your session.

Printing your poster

The conference organization will be providing materials for mounting the poster. However, you are required to print out and bring your poster to the conference.
Make sure that your poster is printed the day before your session.

Oral Presentation

Presentation duration

Each presentation is allocated 15 minutes for lecture sessions. This time includes setup and questions. We recommend that presentation of your slides should take about 12 minutes, leaving 3 minutes for setup, introduction, summary, and questions from the audience. Recall that there will be plenty of time to discuss your work during the coffee breaks and social events.

Uploading your presentation

In order to avoid technical issues and for timing efficiency, the rule is to use the laptop provided by the conference. Your slides need to be uploaded into the conference computer prior to your presentation.
Please upload your presentation on https://submission.complexnetworks.org no later than December 05, 2018.
To log in, use the same credentials that you used for uploading your camera-ready contribution.
Note that you will be able to update your presentation until the day before your presentation at 11PM CET.

Lightning Presentation

The lightning sessions are plenary sessions. They will take place in the main Room every morning between the keynote presentations. We expect the sessions to be well attended and a great success!

Presentation Requirements

Each presentation is allocated 5 minutes. Please keep your presentation within the time you are allotted as a courtesy to the other speakers, your session chair and the audience. Recall that there will be plenty of time to discuss your work during the coffee breaks and social events.
Each presenter is allowed up to ten (10) slides. The first slide should be a header slide with your name, affiliation and title.
There is no time reserved for discussion or questions after each presentation.
Discussions will follow the last presentation of the session.

Uploading your presentation no later than December 05, 2018.

The Lightning Presentation MUST be uploaded to our system before the meeting.

To log in, use the same credentials that you used for uploading your camera-ready contribution.

Reporting to the session chair

Lighting sessions require a little bit of advance organization to ensure they run smoothly. The smooth, rapid flow of talks is what makes the lightning sessions so exciting. While one lightning speaker is presenting, the next speakers will be on the podium getting ready so that there are no delays between presentations.

All speakers must report to the session chair at the registration desk at 8:30 AM the day of your presentation to receive instructions from the chair, review presentation order and make sure your presentation is how you wish.
Make sure to be in the room 15-20 minutes before the session starts.

Poster Lightning Presentation Tips

Use illustrations and graphic material on each slide – as opposed to textual content alone – to increase comprehension and retention.
Keep the wording to a minimum, as you want the audience focused on what you are saying in the short time allotted, not trying to read words on your slides.
Try to keep your presentation focused on visuals, feel free to get creative with how you lay out your information and/or data.
Remember that you are the presenter, not the slides. Use your slides to emphasize a point, keep yourself on track, and illustrate a point with a graphic or photo.
Keep it simple, clean, and concise. Use consistent wording. The maximum screen load is 6 to 8 lines and 30-35 words for a single slide.
Practice your presentation. Know your time limit (your presentation length) and set a timer for these practice presentations.

Presentation format
