Organisational information on lectures and poster sessions
Information for speakers
Each presentation session will be moderated by one to two session chairs and will — as a rule — comprise 6 presentations. A time span of 15 minutes is allotted for each presentation. The presentation itself should last about 12 minutes to allow sufficient time for the subsequent discussion. The chairs are responsible for time management. You can find the allocation of your presentation to a presentation session in the conference programme on the conference website or in the online registry.

A full HD projector in 16:9 format, a conference laptop and a microphone are available in each lecture room. In addition, a laser pointer and a mouse are available.
The conference laptop is equipped with a web browser, a PDF viewer and Libre Office. Please note that Microsoft Office is not installed on the conference laptops.
In order to ensure that everything runs smoothly, we ask all speakers to hand in their presentation at least 2 hours before the start of their presentation at the speakers’ office (room and opening hours will be announced later). The presentations will be transmitted by the conference team on the conference laptops provided in order to avoid possible technical problems during the presentation.
Please bring your presentation on a USB stick and make sure that all fonts are embedded in the PDF/Libre Office document. The USB stick should contain all the necessary materials for the presentation to work offline.
Unfortunately, prior online submission of the presentation is not possible. Each presenter must therefore appear in person at the Speaker’s Office with a USB stick in order to ensure correct allocation and a smooth technical process.
Language of presentation
The GMDS would like to become more international. Therefore, some session titles in the programme are deliberately written in English. This makes it clear in the programme which sessions are potentially suitable for international guests without sufficient knowledge of German. If there are no international guests at a session, the presentations of a session can of course all be held in German if required.
Poster Session Information
All accepted posters will be presented during a poster session in the library, moderated by one or two chairs. The session is — as a rule — planned for a maximum of 6 posters. Each presentation should have a duration of 3 to 5 minutes, so that the poster session lasts about 1 hour. The chairs are ultimately responsible for time management.
The assignment of your poster to a poster session can be found in the conference programme on the conference website or in the online registry.

Please bring your printed poster in DIN A0 format (portrait) with you. You have the option of either handing in the poster at the service desk (room and opening hours to be announced) in the LIV to have it hung up by the conference team, or you can hang it up yourself. Fixing material for the posters will be provided.
All posters will be displayed in our library LIV (Building R, No. 15) and can be viewed at any time by all visitors of LIV and by all participants of the annual conference.
