Requirements to papers and posters

Requirements to papers, posters and KONTEC DIRECT short technical lectures

Plenary presentations and posters will be selected from abstracts submitted in response to the call for papers. The abstracts should be 2 pages maximum and be condensed versions of the papers, giving the main items of interest, the methodology as well as the results and principal conclusions of the paper.

Plenary presentations are expected for more complex subjects. Posters may address more specific items.

All contributions should present recent works.

The Program Committee reserves the right to group papers which cover similar topics and to integrate some of the submitted contributions into the KONTEC DIRECT postersessions as short technical lectures in word & vision.

Apart from a rich content and the paper’s topicality, especially the quality of the preparation as well as the paper’s illustration appropriate for presentation are decisive criteria for selection.

20 minutes plus 10 minutes for subsequent discussion are scheduled for each plenary paper.

In addition to KONTEC DIRECT poster panels to be presented at selected times, for each poster presentation a fully equipped double wall (2 x DIN A0) posterboard will be provided for the whole time of the conference.
