Instructions for oral presentations

The official language of the conference is English. Presenters will be given 15 minutes for their presentation, plus 5 minute for discussion and question. Invited talks will be 25 minutes in length, with a 5 minute discussion and question time.
The equipment available on site will be a PC and a data projector. Authors should bring their presentations on USB flash memory sticks. The recommended software to be used is MS PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx) or Adobe Acrobat (pdf). Presentation should be uploaded on to the PC prepared by the local organizing committee during the break before the session. Alternatively, you may bring your own laptop PC. In this case, please confirm that it has a VGA port for external signal output. In either case, authors are advised to check if all the slides including formulas and animations are shown correctly during the break before the session. To clearly identify your presentation file in the PC, please use the following format for your filename.

YYYYMMDD_ Session category_FirstName_LastName.ppt (.pptx or .pdf)

Please also note that the slides of the oral presentations will be collected and put on the password-protected NEWRAD2017 webpage as uneditable pdf, if authors agree their slides to be published, for participants only.

Instructions for poster presentations

The presentation on the poster has to be in English. The size of the poster boards is 2100 mm (height) x 900 mm (width). The effective area to attach the poster is reduced due to a metal frame (10 mm width) on all sides. Please make sure that your poster does not exceed the effective area. Poster boards will indicate the reference code found in the conference program for each poster. All the posters should be put up on the poster boards in the morning of Wednesday (June 14, 2017) and removed at the end of session on Thursday (June 15, 2017). Fixing materials will be available on site. Removal and collection of posters at the end of the display period remains the responsibility of the authors. The posters left behind will be disposed of accordingly by conference staff. Please note that conference staff are not responsible for packing, removing or shipping your poster. Authors of the posters assigned in Poster Session A are expected to be close to their posters from 13:30 to 15:30 on Wednesday. The same applies to the Poster Session B on Thursday. Please note that all the posters are kept displaying for two days to promote further discussion in addition to the respective poster session time.
