The organisation team of the 12th Central European Diatom Meeting that will be held on 26-27 March 2019 in Belvaux, Luxembourg, provides you with information about oral and poster presentations. 

Oral presentations

Oral presentations (20 minutes) are scheduled throughout the conference. The organising team invites you to check the online programme for the time allotted to your presentation, including a few minutes for discussion.

  • Presentations should be uploaded at the registration desk at the latest the day before (if your talk is scheduled for the morning sessions) or in the morning before lunch (if your talk is scheduled for the afternoon session).
  • Presentations should be named: Surname_Date_PresentationTitle.ppt.
  • All presentations must be compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint on the Windows PC platform.
  • If your presentation includes videos, they will not work unless they are copied onto the presentation laptop computer as well. Therefore, please ensure to submit copies of the videos when submitting your presentation.

Poster presentation

Posters will be presented in two sections, on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. Presenters of the posters are kindly asked to stay next to their posters allowing discussion with the participants. Pins for mounting the posters will be provided. Please remove your poster at the end of the poster session.

  • Internet facilities
    Wireless internet is available in the building.
  • Student prizes
    Prizes for the best student oral and poster presentation will be evaluated by the scientific committee and awarded by the organisers.

Evaluation criteria include: communication skills, quality of scientific content, overall quality of the presentation and the visual layout. The results of the competition will be announced during the Gala dinner at the end of the meeting.
