Oral and poster instructions

ORAL PRESENTATIONS
All authors presenting their work in an oral session are required to prepare a PowerPoint presentation of their paper, to be emailed to the Symposium Organising Secretariat at papers@urbanmining.it no later than 7th May 2018.
Presentations should last about 15 minutes. During the presentation company advertising should be avoided. Presence of authors’ affiliations or company logos should be very discreet.
On site, speakers should contact the chairman 15 minutes before the beginning of the session in which their paper is to be presented. The chairman will be available in the conference hall where the session is to take place. Speakers should be present at the conference table from the beginning of the session and remain for the entire duration. If your allotted time runs out during your presentation, do not under any circumstances hurry to finish the entire presentation but go straight to the conclusions. To this regard, it may be of use to prepare a slide illustrating the conclusions in a synthesized version.
A member of staff will be on hand at the speakers’ desk for all requirements and a PC will be available for final checks, with priority given in line with session timetable.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS
The Organizing Secretariat of the SUM 2018 Symposium is prepared to print, at no extra cost to the authors, the hard copy of all posters listed in the conference programme. This facility is offered to facilitate authors during their journey to reach the Symposium and, at the same time, to allow the Organizers to complete set up of the poster hall before the conference begins.
To this regard, we kindly ask authors to send their poster (as .pdf file) to info@urbanmining.it no later than 10th May 2018. Posters must be 800x1000mm vertical format and written using large letters as they should be legible from a distance of at least one meter.
 Under no circumstances may posters contain any kind of advertising or commercial propaganda.
On site, each poster panel will bear a number, which will correspond to the official number assigned to posters in the Symposium programme.
The Staff at the registration desk will be pleased to provide assistance to poster presenters in case of need.
