Submissions Procedure and Paper Format
All accepted papers, both for posters and oral presentations, are published in the proceedings. The posters themselves are not published in the proceedings.
The allocated time for oral presentations is 20 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions. Overhead and powerpoint projectors are available. If you have other requirements (video, slides etc.) please contact the organisers in good time.
Please check with the conference schedule to determine when you are presenting (and on the day, as the schedule may change!), and contact your session chairperson at least 10 minutes before your session to ensure your presentation is loaded and there are no compatibility problems with the projection equipment, etc.
If you are scheduled to present, but cannot make the slot, please arrange for a qualified substitute speaker, and inform the organisers as soon as possible.
Poster Presentations at TAROS
The poster boards are approximately 1200mm high by 850mm wide (i.e. A0 size), so please plan your poster to be no larger than A0 (1189x841) for display in portrait (i.e. vertical) format only. An A1 size (594x841mm) poster may be displayed either in portrait or landscape format. If you intend to use individual sheets, please plan your display within the dimensions given.
Besides being displayed, posters will be presented in a 2-minute "poster spotlight". For this presentation, authors are invited to use up to two slides to introduce their poster. Timings will be strictly observed. The purpose of the poster spotlight is to present just the main points of your poster - details of the work should be presented during the actual poster session.
You are specifically asked to USE NO PINS on the display boards, but "Velcro" style self-adhesive hook patches to mount your posters, which will be available on the day.
