Notes for Speakers

Talk Format:
Contributed talks are 12 minutes with 2 or 3 minutes for discussion.
Invited talks are 25 minutes with 5 minutes for discussion.

To keep the program on track, all talks will be given using one computer, and you will need to upload your talk prior to your session.


  • Send your talk to well in advance (at least 2 hours) of your session
  • Or, at the very latest, upload your talk via a memory stick prior to the session in which you are speaking.

The accepted file formats include PDF and PPT (although PDF is generally more platform-independent). Please ensure that your presentation works after uploading it.



Abstracts prepared with your favorite editor should look like this PDF example, and should not exceed one page.

A latex template can be downloaded here. The example also gives you more details. Please send both the source and the PDF file, as email attachments to

The deadline for abstract submission is January 13, 2014.
