Paper Preparation

Oral Sessions

The presentation times for oral sessions are listed below:

  • Contributed presentations: 15 minutes
  • Invited talks: 30 minutes

The last 5 minutes in each presentation are set for questions and discussions.

Poster Sessions

Poster sessions are scheduled for selected papers that may be better presented with greater visual details, allowing attendees who share interests similar to yours to study and restudy the information and having discussions one-on-one.

For poster sessions, SPP8 provides each presenter a bulletin board where the speaker can mount a poster [90 cm (W) x 120 cm (H)] and provide flyers of the research, if any. Note that authors must be around their bulletin board during the poster sessions to present their research and answer questions.
