We would like to thank you for accepting to participate in EAC 2019 in Gothenburg!

Below you will find some information that will help prepare your contribution.

Plenary and Oral sessions

To ensure a smooth course during sessions, we kindly ask presenting authors to consider the following:

The time slots for each type of session and presentation format is:

Session chairs have been instructed to rigorously enforce the schedule, i.e. to strictly limit the length of a presentation. We kindly ask you for your understanding and for your cooperation in keeping the schedule.

Be at the room of your session well in advance before session starts, so that you can meet your session chairs and other speakers and get acquainted to the technical equipment.


Speakers Preview Room and presentations

Presenters must report to the Speaker Preview Room and hand in the presentation on a USB stick at least 2 hours prior to the talk. The presentation will then be sent to the presentation room and each room has a technician that will assist and start the presentation for you.

Computers and Technical assistance

There will be technical assistance in all rooms, however, to avoid any problems with your presentation please make sure that it meets the necessary requirements

Linked files

If possible, try to embed videos into your presentation file. If this is not possible, make sure your presentation file and linked files are in the same folder.

Poster Presentations

Important information for poster presentations

The poster area will be in the conference area in Expo hall/Hall F. Poster presenting authors can display their poster during the day it will be presented between 09:00-17:00.

You are expected to put up the poster in the morning, before the morning coffee break. Please remove your poster in the afternoon, after the last coffee break. Posters not withdrawn after the day will not be saved.

When preparing the poster, presenters should have in mind the objective of capturing the interest of attendees to the work that is being presented. The quality of the presentation stimulates the attention from the audience and improves the overall satisfaction of the community attending the conference. Use an appropriate font size allowing posters to be readable by delegates 1,5 m away.

The poster message should be clear and understandable without oral explanation. Further, we would like to call the attention of poster presenters to the following items:

  • Each poster board is marked with a poster ID-number. Please find your poster ID-number in the Online program (available later the printed or PDF version).
  • Authors are requested to use only the boards provided for their poster.
  • Posters should be fixed to the poster board using the velcro tape provided on site at the poster hall.
  • Authors are required to stand by their posters during their whole scheduled poster session time on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday.
  • The maximum and recommended  size of your poster is A0 poster in ‘Portrait’ (vertical) format. A0 measures 841mm wide x 1189mm high. Please note that there is not enough space for posters bigger than the stated size or posters in landscape. No audio-visual equipment is allowed at the posters.

We wish you good luck while preparing your presentation and thank you for your cooperation!
