For speakers and demonstrators

Timing

Timeslots for speakers are 20 minutes. This includes setup and questions. You would not want to find you have only 5 minutes because others have overrun! So please, make absolutely sure your presentation fits in the allocated time. Session chairs will be sticking strictly to time, so please help them.

Research Workshop

The Research Workshop is a relaxed, informal event. However, it is still very important that you keep to your allotted time slot, as there is a very full programme. Slots for presentations will be 15 minutes to speak and present, followed by 5 minutes Q & A and discussion.

  • Please practice beforehand to make sure you keep to time; it's not fair on those that follow if you overrun.
  • Because we have such a full programme, for the Research Workshop please bring your presentation on a USB memory stick or a CD or DVD, not on your own laptop.
  • If you use a Mac to make your presentation do make sure that you save images first as .jpg. Native Mac images don't show on a PC. If possible run it first on a PC to make sure.

Demonstrations, visual presentations

Demos have the same importance as more conventional papers. Each demonstrator has specific time slot in a room suitable for demonstrations including audience interaction.

  • Demo's are a distinctive feature of EVA London. Instead of a conventional talk with powerpoint you would offer an interactive demonstration of a technology or a project: a 'show and tell' session where delegates cluster around and ask questions. Ideally, you would bring physical objects or apparatus to be shown and demonstrated, or passed around.
  • It is very important that you send in your technical requirements by the deadline for this.
  • As for papers, you must keep to the 20 minute timeslot.
