SMACD 2016 - Lisbon, Portugal - pre

Guidelines for Presenters


Sponsored by:



Attendees who are presenting at PRIME 2016 or SMACD 2016 should note the following guidelines.

The duration of formal oral presentations is 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for questions. Please ensure that your presentation duration does not exceed 15 minutes. To ensure that everyone gets the most from the conference, the presentation schedule will be strictly enforced by each Session Chair. We have found that presentations in excess of 15 slides are difficult to present within the available time.

Presenters are asked to verify that that all necessary presentation materials are in place and tested in their presentation venue, well before the session commences. Presenters are requested to find an opportunity in advance of the presentation to familiarise themselves with the venue and podium environment. The members of the conference committee will be available to help throughout the conference.

Presenters should complete the ShortBio form, print and deliver it to the their Session Chair who will be available in the presentation venue 10 mins before the session begins. This will also allow a final check that all necessary presentation materials are in place before the session starts.

A PC is available in each room, at the conference venue, for speakers' use during their presentations. Speakers should upload their presentations to the venue PC at least 10 minutes in advance of the session that they are presenting in. To ensure that sessions proceed undisturbed, if required by Speakers, deleting the presentations from the venue PC should be done at end of the session.

PLEASE NOTE that any accepted paper included in the final programme is expected to have at least one author to attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend the Conference will be subscribed to a “No Show List”. The “No Show List” will also be made available to the following conferences organizers, who can reject submissions from these authors in the following years, based on their past negative impact on the conference.
