General Information

Official invitation and visa

Conference participants are advised to check the passport and visa requirements for travel to Germany well in advance. More information on the visa support will be provided after participants' registration on the conference website.

Conference venue

The Conference will be hosted by Steigenberger Hotel Sanssouci, Allee nach Sanssouci 1, 14471 Potsdam, Germany.

Conference language

The language of the conference is English.

Information for the presenters

We recommend to prepare slides in 4:3 format, as the broad 16:9 format might display too small. You can either use your own laptop or a presentation laptop with Windows operating system. VGA and HDMI connectors are available.
All the talk timings in the program correspond to the total time allocated per speaker. We advise all the speakers to check the program carefully. The times in the program include presentation and questions. The speakers should plan their presentations such that they reserve some time for questions, e.g. 15 minutes means 12(13) minutes presentation time and 3(2) minutes for a discussion. Similarly, the 25 and 30 minutes presentations should allocate 5 minutes for questions and discussions.

Information for the poster presenters

We recommend a poster size of DIN A0 (corresponding to roughly 84 cm (width) x 119 cm (height)). Please use portrait layout, as the poster walls would not support landscape orientation.

Competition for the best poster prize
We are delighted to announce that the organizing committee has decided to organize a friendly competition for the best poster. The prize will amount in 100 Euro and will be decided based on the majority of votes; all registered participants of the conference will have one vote. We encourage all poster presenters to take part in the competition!
