Scientific presentations will be held either as oral presentation or by poster. Presentations will primarily be given in English. Presentations with a German abstract will be given in German.

Oral Presentation

Usually, presentations will have the following durations. For exact information, please refer to your division.

  • Contributed talks are 15 minutes including discussion and speaker change(12 min talk + 3 min discussion/speaker change)
  • Invited talks are 30 minutes including discussion and speaker change (25 min talk + 5 min discussion/speaker change)
  • Plenary presentations are 45 minutes without discussion

All lecture rooms are standardly equipped with a projector (“beamer”) with VGA input. The speakers must provide laptops as well as all associated adapters (e.g. HDMI to VGA, Apple-adapter).

The projectors mainly display in the 4:3 format. However they are compatible with the 16:9, limited to the display width. Some newer systems also work directly with 16:9.

Additionally, lecturers are requested to bring their presentation (pdf or PowerPoint) on an USB memory stick.

Overhead projectors (OHPs) are not available.


Checklist for speakers:

• Laptop
• Presentation (format 4:3) on an USB stick in PDF and PowerPoint format
• If necessary: associated adapters (e.g. HDMI to VGA, Apple-adapter) in case your laptop has no VGA-input or you will use an Apple-computer.


All lecture rooms will be opened at the latest 40 minutes prior to the lecture. Speakers  are  requested  to  be  in  the  lecture  hall  at  least  25  minutes  prior  to  the  start  of  the  session*, in order to

(1) set up and connect the laptop with the projector via a provided switch (VGA-input, only) or
(2) transfer the presentation from the USB memory-stick to a provided computer in the lecture hall and
(3) to report to the chairperson of the session.

* In HSZ 01, 02, 03 and in GER 38 it is recommended to transfer the presentation on the day before the lecture or on Monday morning.

Please contact to the technical staff to receive a brief introduction to the equipment in the lecture hall.

Every speaker is responsible himself to ensure the laptops handshake with the projectors prior to the start of the respective session.


Sites for poster sessions are named and located as follows:

P1C Tent C behind the Lecture Hall Center (HSZ)
P2 Lecture Hall Center (HSZ): foyer, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor (hallway) (
P3 Chemistry Building (CHE) in the foyer (
P4 Leibniz-Institute IFW Dresden (IFW) in the Atrium next to room IFW A

Posters must fit within a rectangle 90 cm wide and 120 cm high (DIN A0), portrait format!

The poster boards will be marked with the number according to the scientific programme. Authors are asked to mount their poster when the poster board is prepared with the corresponding poster number. Usually this will be arranged in the morning, or 1,5 hours before the session when there are several poster sessions per day*. Each poster should display the number according to the scientific programme.

For the mounting of the poster  please  use  the  provided  mounting  material  at  the  poster  frame  or  contact  the  student  staff available at the poster area.

The presenting authors should be at hand for discussion at their poster during at least half of the poster session and should note this time at the poster.

The posters have to be removed after the session.  Any posters remaining on poster boards will be removed and destroyed without requesting your permission.

The conference management cannot assume any liability!

* several poster sessions per day: Monday P3 and Tuesday P1A, P1C, P2-EG and P2-OG1
