GUIDELINES FOR MICCAI 2018 PRESENTATIONS
POSTERS for MAIN CONFERENCE & SATELLITE EVENTS
All accepted papers will be presented as posters at the conference. The posters will stay up throughout the three days of the main conference (September 17-19, 2018). During the assigned poster session, one of the authors must present the paper at the poster. The posters may be mounted starting at 8am on Monday, September 17. The posters must be taken down on Wednesday, September, 19, between 6:30pm and 8pm. Posters left behind by presenters will be discarded.
The maximum poster size for MICCAI 2018 is 95cm x 175cm (Width x Height). Note this is portrait format.
Each regular oral presentation is allocated a 15 minute slot:
- Regular talks must not exceed 12 minutes, leaving 2-3 minutes for questions.
- Each spotlight (short) talk is allocated a 5 minute slot, without any question time.
Timing will be strictly enforced to ensure a smooth handover between speakers. Please ensure that you have rehearsed the timing of your talk beforehand. As a rule of thumb, you should have one slide per minute of talk time. The session chair will introduce each speaker and title of the talk. Each oral presentation will also have an associated poster presentation, and therefore any additional details can be provided at that time.
The preferred formats are PowerPoint and Adobe PDF. Presenters will be required to use the conference system to minimize setup time. Please prepare your slides in 16:9 ratio aspect.
We suggest bringing a copy of all the files including movies on a USB key. If you are including videos in your presentation, it is highly recommended you use a standard codec such as Microsoft Video 1 to avoid playback issues. Using the Package for CD option from PowerPoint will ensure all media files are copied into one location and file paths are adjusted inside the presentation.
We require speakers to upload their slides to our dedicated conference computer during the poster session that precedes their oral session at the latest (for example, Tuesday morning speakers should upload their slides during the Monday afternoon poster session at the latest). Monday morning speakers should find the AV team and upload their slides on Sunday or Monday morning, by 8 am, i.e. well before the conference starts.
