Presenter Guidelines

Oral presentation

The duration of the oral presentations is 15 minutes, including 3 minutes for questions. There will be no parallel sessions, all oral presentations will be given in the Hahn-Hörsaal.

A laptop will be provided, equipped with standard software to support ppt and pdf (bring your presentation on an USB stick then). If your presentation needs keynote, please use your own laptop (HDMI and VGA possible). Adapters will be provided. If you want to use your own laptop, please make sure that you have checked the functionality of the presentation well in advance, especially when using media files or uncommon fonts.

The projector resolution is 1920x1080 (full HD), a 16:9 format is preferred (4:3 is also possible).

There will be wireless LAN and Eduroam for online software presentation.

It is advised to upload the presentations the day before the respective session.


Poster presentation

The size of the poster boards is 144cm x 116cm. It is recommended to print the posters in A0 (portrait) to make best use of the available space.

The individual poster sessions are scheduled from 13:30-15:00 for the day of the respective focus topic. Posters are on display also outside the designated poster sessions. They can be put up in the morning of the day of the poster session and need to be removed latest in the evening of the day after.

The poster walls will be numbered with your abstract ID. We will provide material to fix the posters.
Please pick up your poster until Friday afternoon at the latest.


Round Table discussion

The UCP2019 organization committee plans, in addition to the usual discussions in the thematic sessions, to provide many opportunities for people to interact informally. We will offer round table discussions as an interactive way to bring together conference participants from all stages of their career.

Format description:
A common round table set up is that 6-10 participants get to interact for 20-30 minutes. One of the participants chairs the table, deciding on a theme which can range from purely scientific content to subjects like career development in science, gender balance in STEM subjects, publication strategies or compatibility of research and family life.
After a typically brief input — the round table is not meant to be another form of lecturing presentation format — the table is open for questions and discussion. The size of the audience allows these to be an “ideal format for networking and in-depth discussion on a particular topic” (American Evaluation Association, 2014). Beyond, the round table format enables discussion on issues of shared concern and gives space to generate ideas for action. Generally, round table discussions are seen as a valuable, more interpersonal way of interaction with fellow scientists.

This format needs your input, but no intensive preparation!
If you have a topic you are passionate about or a theme you always wanted to discuss in a small group, write a short notice to wiebke.schubotz_at_mpimet.mpg.de to indicate your topic or do so during the course of the UCP2019 conference.
