Assigning Presentation Mode
4.1 Decide for every abstract, its presentation mode – whether “Oral” or “Poster”. For as long as the session’s program is still work-in-progress, changes can be made as often as you wish.
4.2 The number of “Oral” and “Poster” presentations for each session is according to the number of timeslots allocated to your Session which, is calculated based on the total number of accepted abstracts in your Session relative to the total number for the conference.
4.3 The assignment is expected to be based on the abstract content and quality, consideration for preferences of the authors, and the necessity that the session fits within the time allocated. Session scheduling is based on a ratio of oral to poster presentations of 60:40. Authors who requested for posters should not be assigned to oral presentations.
4.4 Care needs to be taken that the oral presentations, especially within a single Session, are seen to be fairly distributed. Typically, a person should not make more than one presentation in a session.
4.5 There are two ways to assign the Presentation Mode: For each Abstract or In Batches
For Each Abstract (Individually)
- Go to the “Abstract Details” page (see 3 above for detailed instructions)
- Under “Abstract Status” section, go to “Assign Presentation Mode” and then click the link “Mark as Oral” or “Mark as Poster”, as desired and where appropriate.
- Go to the “Abstract List” page (see 3 above for detailed instructions)
- Tick the checkboxes of the abstracts to be assigned as “Oral” and click the button “Oral” at the top of the list. And all the selected abstracts will be assigned as “Oral”.
The procedure to assign “Poster” presentations is similar to for “Oral”.
