Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations for the MiSARN have been allocated 25 minutes of effective presentation time, plus 4 minutes given to Q/A and 1 minute turnaround time between speakers.

Authors must prepare their oral presentations to be sure to convey their message in clear and sharp manner, including giving outline of the key principles, facts and results. More detailed discussions can continue during the breaks.
