We are looking forward to your presentation at the SHST 2017 Conference. In order to expedite the oral presentations, your cooperation (presenters and session moderators) in ensuring that the programme runs smoothly is highly appreciated. Please see below useful guidelines for those who sustain oral presentation, as plenary speakers and presenters of short presentations (‘flash talks’, of no more than 3 minutes). The presentation of contributions as flash talks and the order of presentations will be communicated later. The moderators will ensure that all presenters adhere strictly to the programme schedule (http://conference.shst.ro). Agreed with the presenters which will participate also to the Millennium Symposium (http://symposium.usamvcluj.ro), some of the flash presentations are allocated for the next day (in a separate section, the program being announced later). In addition, all papers are published in Notulae Botanicae Horti Agrobotanici Cluj-Napoca journal.

-The lecture computer uses the Window 7 operating system or higher;  presentations will be made using PowerPoint  (recommended), respectively PowerPoint 2010 or higher. Please ensure that your presentation is compatible with PowerPoint (or your video presentation) before arriving at the Conference.

Short presentation (‘flash talk’)

-Time is limited for a flash talk presentation – 3 minutes – for each presentation. Therefore, it is important that you think carefully about the content of your presentation and plan accordingly (please read our recommendations).

-Flash talks should consist of a minimum of six slides. We do no impose a maximum number of slides, giving the opportunity to each presenter to chose the most relevant data (pictures etc.) for the authors’ contribution, completing the published paper. We steadily invite all presenters to respect the allocated time.

Therefore, please ensure that you remain within the lecture theater until the conclusion of the programme. Further discussion with interested delegates can take place during the conference.

If the file exceeds the account capacity, you can send it via Wetransfer.com, to the same e-mail address.

– Please also bring a copy of your presentation on a USB stick with you onsite, for any inconveniences.

-All speakers should obtain an e-mail confirmation after the file is verified as compatibility, within a few days after submitting the presentation. If there are any  inadequacies, you will be noted accordingly. In the case you do not receive a confirmation e-mail after sending the presentation, please inform us at rsestras@notulae.ro. In addition, you can visit, before the conference, the upload desk at/near registration, in order to have confirmation of the upload flash talk presentation and that it will run smoothly. Loading of presentations will not be allowed during the conference.

-Please name your presentation as follows: surname of presenter, underline [(underscore (_)], first two words of the title-paper separated by underline. Example: “Smith_The_Influence.pptx”. For plenary speaker presentation is enough surname.

 

Time keeping

-Given the programme at the Conference, it is important that all speakers keep to their allotted time. The session moderators and conference organizers will oversee time keeping.

-Speakers and flash talk presenters are invited to be present for the start of the session and to sit in the front rows near the lectern, ready to come to the lectern to present according to the timetable.
