All Participants are asked to orally present their work. In addition to the oral presentation, participants can present their work as a traditional poster or as an outstanding alternative presentation.

A participant can attend the EMPSEB conference only once during their PhD studies.

Oral Presentation Guidelines

  • The presentation should last no longer than 15 minutes. It includes 12 minutes presentation and 3 minutes of discussion. If the presentation extends beyond the allowed time, the organisers have the right to interrupt it.
  • Please bring your presentation file on a USB flash drive.
  • Presenters are kindly requested to upload their presentations on the morning before the beginning of the conference.
  • The file’s name should start with the session name followed by the hour and then with the presenter’s name.
  • Please prepare your presentation in .ppt, .pptx (Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003-2017 format), or pdf file.
  • Presentations will be removed from the presentation computer hard drive at the end of each session.
  • There will be no option of using your own laptop.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

  • All posters must be prepared in English.
  • Poster boards will accommodate A0-size posters in portrait (vertical) format.

Alternative Presentation Guidlines

The alternative session allows for your total creative freedom over your scientific communication. Poetry? Creative dance? A sculpture? The sky is the limit! We will work around your submission styles to get you what you need to shine, be it a microphone, projector, display stand, or Peregrine falcon. Dare to dream.

Feel free to present an experiment or even an overview of your PhD. We look forward to your submissions!
