SUBMISSION DIRECTIONS

GUIDELINES ORAL AND POSTER SESSIONS

ORAL PRESENTATION

The language of presentation can be Italian or, for foreign speakers, English. However, it is suggested that the slides be prepared in English so that foreign participants can read them.

The required format for the slides is wide-screen (16:9).

Accepted formats are .ppt or .pdf.

The duration of each talk will be 11 minutes in total, including 8 minutes for presentation and 3 devoted to any questions.

Oral presentations will be given at the times that the Scientific Committee will indicate in the final program.

All authors who will present their work are strongly encouraged to scrupulously check the length of their presentations. Adherence to the timing is essential for successful presentations and effective and stimulating discussion. To this end, session moderators are mandated to strictly enforce scheduled times.
The times during which presentations can be uploaded to the dedicated station are as follows: from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m., from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., and during coffee breaks.


All those who are to give oral presentations during the first morning session (beginning 9:45 a.m.) must upload slides by the previous evening.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORAL PRESENTATIONS

  • Slides should be prepared in PowerPoint 16:9 format.

  • The official language of the congress is Italian, so the oral presentation should preferably be given in Italian.

  • To facilitate foreign guests, speakers are asked to prepare slides in English.

  • Please check the time of your presentation in the congress program and information sheets (the updated program is available at https://www.siamoc2024.com/programma).

  • The time allocated for each presentation is:

  • 11 minutes for oral presentations, including 8 minutes for the presentation and 3 minutes for any questions from the floor;

  • 45 minutes for the magisterial readings, including 35 minutes for the presentation and 10 for any questions from the floor.

  • It is requested that the presentation be uploaded to the computer in the presentation room at least 15 minutes before the start of the session and, in any case, no later than the last available break before the session.

  • When uploading the presentation, please check carefully for display errors, particularly with regard to video and mathematical/symbolic expressions.

  • Please be present at least 10 minutes before the start of the session and notify the chairpersons of your presence.

  • Please remain in the room throughout the session from start to finish so as to ensure smooth transitions between presenters of individual presentations.

  • Moderators will be asked to be extremely strict about adherence to time and, if necessary, to stop presentations that go beyond the allotted time.

POSTER

The Congress Poster sessions aim to maximize interactions and exchange of scientific information/ideas between event participants and sponsors. To this end, the duration of the sessions will be two and a half hours and will include lunch.
