Instructions for egg-timer presenters

Presentation format

We kindly ask you not to bring your own laptop, but to bring your presentation on a USB-key, as a laptop (MS Windows environment) will be provided in all rooms. Changing laptops takes valuable time and might cause technical difficulties. Please note that there are no Macintosh computers available.

Supported presentation format is PowerPoint (format 16:9) preferably or PDF. Make sure to copy your presentation onto the laptop in the assigned room. The volunteers and chairs in the auditorium will assist you with this. Please save your presentation under the following file name to avoid confusion: EAERE2024_LastName_Session#

Please note that presentations should be given in English only.

Presentations can be uploaded during the break before your session in the room where your presentation will take place. We kindly ask you to be in the room 15 minutes before the start of your session. Please use this time to locate and present yourself to the chair of your session so they know you are present and your presentation can be uploaded.

In order to access the full papers in the programme, please log into your ConfTool account and select "Browse conference agenda." Please make sure you are logged in to your ConfTool account in order to be able to access the full PDFs of the papers. Once you are logged in, access a session (parallel, egg-timer) and select the "Show Downloads" button on the top left of the programme. Links to the PDF files will appear below each paper.
Papers are only available to registered participants.


Organisation of sessions
The egg-timer sessions will run in parallel with paper presentation sessions. One person in each session is designated as the Session Chair; please check the detailed conference programme when it becomes available in the coming days to see if you are the Chair of your session. If you are, you will be in charge of time management. The time available for each egg-timer paper is 10 minutes of which 7 minutes are for the presentation and 3 minutes for general discussion. The tight schedule means strict time restrictions, so please respect your colleagues and keep to the allocated time for your presentation. 
Some important guidelines to help make the egg-timer format work successfully:
a. Seven minutes is not a long time so make sure you condense your message to fit the time frame.
b. Your presentation should focus only on the key aspects of the paper.  Please practice!
c. You will find that you need very few slides. 
d. Be prepared for you presentation to be cut-short by the session chair if you go over time.
Any questions regarding these instruction and late cancellations should be sent to programme@eaere.org.
