Information for Authors

Conference Language

The official language of the conference is English. Simultaneous translation will be not available.

Introduction to the audience/CV

A brief CV questionary enables the appropriate chair person to introduce all lecturers to the audience. Therefore lecturers are asked to download the CV form and saved with the Presenter’s lastname and return it to the organising secretariat by
1 March 2021.

Please prepare your slides in 16:9 format. 

Please note that talks should not exceed 20 min presentation time. After each session we have scheduled a 30-minute Q&A session, during which participants have the opportunity to discuss with the speakers. Please schedule this accordingly.

We recommend using Google Chrome as your browser.

As a meeting platform we use the virtual venue of Converia and Zoom. We recommend that you download the Zoom app to present your presentation. We plan rehearsals in the week before the conference.

We recommend using 2 monitors if possible - one for playback of the presentation and one for Converia's Virtual Venue and Zoom.

Preparation of Poster

As a major guideline it is proposed to make the poster intelligible in itself, even in the absence of the author. It is suggested to divide the contents of each poster into introductionresults and conclusions, with a summary listing the pertinent results and conclusions.

Standard size for posters is 0.85 x 1.2 m (DIN A0-German Standard) vertically oriented. Therefore, please find the following specifications:

  • the minimum size should be 20 cm for graphs;
  • 3 cm for the paper’s title and the names/adresses of the authors in the heading lable;
  • 1,5 cm for sections headings such as introduction, results, labelling of figures and tables;
  • 0,8 cm characters in height for further text
  • Line spacing: 1,1 cm at minimum; 10 of such lines correspond to one figure.
  • Please use colours, symbols and schemes for improved clarity.

The posters will be shown throughout the whole conference.

Please upload your ePoster as PDF Dokument online at
by 8 March at the latest. The file size should not be larger than 8 MB.

Useful information
For the event we would like to ask you to download the APP "Zoom Meeting". This APP application is free of charge and can be placed with your poster. This way, more than one participant can get in touch with you at the same time and start a discussion. Of course, you can also use an APP of your choice.  For the contact with 1 person, use the BigBlueButton or the chat in the venue. We recommend you to give a time slot when you will be present for questions about the poster.
