Information for presenters:

- Symposia: Each symposium is allocated 90 minutes for 4 talks. The symposium chair can decide how to manage the time for each presentation and for questions, and is also responsible for getting the symposium start in time (e.g., uploading all presentation on the room computer in due time).

- Oral paper sessions: Each session is allocated 75 minutes for 4 talks. Each talk should last max. 15 minutes and be followed by 2/3 minutes for questions. Shorter presentations to allow for more questions could also work. Each presenter is responsible for having their presentations on the room computer in due time. The first presenter of the oral paper sessions is gently requested to make sure the session starts on time.

- Blitz Talk sessions: Each Blitz Talk session is allocated 60 minutes for 10 presentations. Each presentation can last max. 5 minutes and there will be no room for questions, as presenters can be approached right after at the poster session. Important note: All presenters should send their presentations via email to the program committee at Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam.

Please indicate clearly in the email body the date and number of the presentation as they appear on the program book (soon available on the SSSP website). The program committee will make sure that all presentations are merged in one file and that they are uploaded on the room computer in due time.

- Posters: Posters should be 4' x 3' (about 120 x 90 cm). Each presenter can choose to use portrait or landscape orientation based on text and visual characteristics.
