The speaker is requested to introduce himself in 2-3 sentences before the paper presentation.

The session chairmen will inform the speaker about 2 last remaining minutes of his presentation showing him a yellow sheet of paper. After the presentation, the session chairmen will ask the audience for questions and comments.

Authors of oral presentations will have at their disposal in each Symposium room: PC computer or laptop with multimedia overhead projector for power-point presentation.

Conference speakers are requested to come to their session room not later than 10 minutes before the session beginning and to contact the session chairmen and technical personnel in order to prepare their presentation in advance.
