Instructions for Authors

It is our great pleasure to welcome you as a presenter at EMC Europe 2022 in Gothenburg. To ensure a smooth course during your session, either oral or poster, we kindly ask you to consider the following instructions.

Important Information for Oral Presentations

In preparing your presentation, remember that it may be viewed from the back of a room seating around 200 people. Font sizes between 18 pt and 24 pt are strongly preferred. If you can’t read a version of a slide printed on a standard sheet of paper from a distance of two meters, people are probably going to have trouble reading your projected slide. Please present the same materials as reported in your paper submission.

The overall time slot for each presentation is 20 minutes. Plan your speech for a duration of 15 minutes to allow time for questions and discussion.

Session chairs have been instructed to rigorously enforce the schedule, i.e., to strictly obey the length of a presentation and the announced starting times. We kindly ask you for your understanding and for your cooperation in keeping the schedule.

Be at the room of your session 15 minutes before session starts, so that you can meet your session chairs and the other speakers in advance.

A video projector and a PC with Windows operating system will be available in all session rooms. The screen format is 16 x 9.

Please bring your presentations on a USB memory stick in MS PowerPoint or Adobe PDF format to EMC Europe 2022 and deliver it in the session room at the conference venue NO LATER than 15 minutes prior to your session! You can of course bring it earlier, in one of the coffee / lunch breaks.

When saving a PowerPoint presentation, please be sure to embed all fonts (Click on “File”, then “Save As“, Click on “Options”, In the options dialog box, Click on “Save” and Check the “Embed fonts in the file“).

When creating a PDF version of a presentation, please be sure to embed all fonts.

We recommend you bring at least 2 copies of your presentation to the conference in case there is a problem with one of them.

Important Information for Poster Presentations

When preparing the poster, presenters should have in mind the objective of capturing the interest of attendees to the work that is being presented. The quality of the presentation stimulates the attention from the audience and improves the overall satisfaction of the community attending the conference. Use an appropriate font size allowing posters to be readable by delegates 1.5 m away. Please present the same materials as reported in your paper submission.

The poster message should be clear and understandable without oral explanation. Please, place the title of your paper and author’s names prominently at the top of the poster to allow viewers to identify your paper easily.

Further, we would like to call the attention of poster presenters to the following items:

  • Each poster board is marked with the poster ID-number.
  • Your poster number has been sent to you in the presentation schedule and can also be found in the detailed program.
  • Poster boards will be marked with poster ID-numbers.
  • Authors are required to use only the boards corresponding to their posters.

Poster presenters must hang up their poster on the day of their presentation from 11:00 to 13:30.

The authors will need to stay personally just during their poster session from 13.30 to 14.30 and to remove their posters from the boards from 16:20 to 18:00. Posters left on the boards after the poster sessions, will not be returned by the organisers.

Posters should be fixed to the poster board using removable stripes which will be provided on site.

The display area has the following obligatory maximum dimensions: 150 cm high and 90 cm wide (portrait only).

We recommend producing a poster in A0 size (approx. 118.9 cm high x 84.1 cm wide).
