Sessions

Oral Presentations (including multi-media)

We invite delegates of the conference to present their work in a 10 minute oral presentation (including multi-media) followed by 5 minutes of discussion. The multi-media presentations will be integrated within the oral presentations in the parallel sessions. They may include material used as part of a promotional campaign or instructional material. They must be no longer than 10 minutes and be on a CD-ROM or DVD. Videomachines will NOT be available.

Please submit abstracts online!

Poster Sessions

The poster sessions provide the opportunity to view research project summaries from around the world and an information exchange between author and delegates. A poster walk has been integrated into the programme in order to highlight posters each day within the main conference programme. Poster presentations will be located in the Conference Centre, adjacent to the plenary and parallel sessions. Posters will rotate on a daily basis.
