Guide lines for Poster Presentation and part B Talk

Poster

Bring a poster in portrait A0 (841 mm × 1189 mm) where you present your PhD project.

At the beginning of each poster session, all who have to present in that session will give a 1 minute (1 slide) introduction to their poster. It is important to keep the time - you will not be allowed to talk after 1 minute! In this 1 min you have to present the purpose of your project and why the project is interesting.

During the poster session people are free to choose which posters to visit. You should be able to present your poster in 2-4 minutes but are welcome to engage in longer discussion if your audience is interested.

Before the conference you need to prepare:

  • A poster
  • A 1 min introduction with max 1 slide
  • How to present your poster in 2-4 min

Part B talk

You have 7 min to talk about your PhD project. The time is strict and you will be interrupted when the 7 min have passed. The following 3 min are for questions and change to the next presenter.

Your talk needs to address all the PhD students at MBG. Remember, we work with very different topics. Your talk should give an introduction to the purpose and perspectives of your PhD project and maybe you will have time to go in depth with one topic (could e.g. be about theoretical background, method or results).

When you submit your abstract, you choose one of 6 keywords (listed below) in the category art to conceptualize your presentation. The keywords are the themes for each of the part B talk sessions, so all presentations will be connected in that associative space. Feel free to be creative when you include the keyword in your presentation - anything is allowed to make the audience see why your talk belongs to that specific category.

The key words are:

  • Beauty
  • Sound
  • Color
  • Sensation
  • Fame
  • Sculpture
