Presentation Formats @ ERC
Paper presentations last 15 – 20 minutes, plus some time for questions. They will be scheduled in 90 minute sessions which will normally include 3 papers on similar themes, in exceptional cases, 4 papers may be combined.
A paper is submitted by one author plus up to 5 co-authors; 2 of the 6 authors can be listed as presenting authors.
EERA will nominate a mentor/chairperson for each session who will take care of time and manage discussion.
Please plan your presentation in a way to allow some questions within your presentation time. We suggest that you end your presentation with a couple of questions in order to stimulate discusion after the presentation.
Pecha Kucha submissions: The ERC Pecha Kucha presentations will take place in a session room, in front of an audience and the mentor/chairperson. The ERC Pecha Kucha is a simple presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The images advance automatically as you narrate them. The software that will be available in the session rooms is PowerPoint. The Pecha Kucha format aims to promote concise and fast-paced presentations, so please ensure that you set up and practice the 20-second per slide timing of presentation in advance of the ERC. A guide about how to set up the timing per slide for a Pecha Kucha PowerPoint can be found here. After the presentation, the mentor/chair and the conference participants can ask the presenter questions during a 5-10 minute discussion. Please arrive at the room in good time to set up your presentation on the computer.
Please note: All Pecha Kucha presentations will take place on Monday.
The ERC has Interactive Poster Sessions in which the authors present their poster for 10 minutes in a session room, in front of an audience and the mentor/chairperson. After the presentation, the mentor/chairperson and other conference participants can ask the presenter questions during a 5-10 minute discussion. The required format for your poster is A1 (594x841 mm/ 23.3x33.1 in) portrait format (upright) only. Each poster should include your name and the title of your submission, and submission number. Please arrive at the room in good time to put up your poster.
