28th Annual Meeting of EACTA
Barcelona, Spain, 6-8 June, 2013
All abstracts that have been accepted for presentation at the EACTA 2013 Annual Meeting will be printed in a supplemental issue of the Journal of Applied Cardiopulmonary Pathophysiology. You will receive a copy of this Supplement at the meeting in Barcelona.
Guidelines for oral presentations
All oral presentations are limited to 11 minutes: 7 minutes for oral presentation and 4 minutes for questions and discussion. It is your responsibility to ensure that your presentation does not overrun the time allocated. Please understand that the chairpersons will enforce compliance with the time allowance in order to provide the same duration of presentation for all speakers.
Therefore, please prepare a presentation with 7-8 slides (components: Title and Aim; Materials and Methods; Results; Conclusions). If necessary, a short video clip will be allowed within the allotted time. The ‘General Principles’ listed below may give you additional help for preparing your presentation.
Please use the PowerPoint software for creating your presentation and send the PowerPoint file containing your presentation by e-mail to Eacta2013@mci-group.com no later than Monday 27th of May 2013. Alternatively, you can submit your presentation at the meeting site in Vienna (the day before the session if you present your work in a morning session or early in the morning for afternoon sessions). After receiving your file, the local organisers will prepare all presentations on an on-site computer. There will be a preview room available to check your presentation before the session.
Please note that a projector for traditional slides will not be available and presentation from a personal laptop will not be possible. Please let us know if you will require an overhead projector.
Guidelines for poster presentations
Please prepare your poster to be displayed vertically in a poster format and to fit within the dimensions of an A0 sheet (width 841 mm, height 1189 mm). Posters should preferably be posted on the morning of the 6th of June 2013 and will be displayed for the duration of the Meeting in the designated poster area of the meeting venue. For each accepted poster, there will be one poster easel reserved in the designated poster area. The poster number will be clearly marked on the easel designated for it.
There will be no formal oral presentation with slides. However, presenters of posters are asked to present a brief verbal summary of their work in front of their poster during the designated poster session. This will take the form of a ‘walk-through’ of the posters by the chairpersons during the designated session. The chairpersons of the session will ask presenting author of each poster to give a very short oral presentation of the main findings of their work as the basis for the discussion that will follow. The oral presentation must not exceed 3 minutes.
