We would like to thank you for accepting to participate to POF 2017 in Aveiro.
Below you will find some information that will help prepare your contribution.

All authors should have at least one registration attached to their paper before August 15, in order to be included in the conference proceedings.

Oral Presentations

In order to ensure a smooth course during the sessions, we kindly ask presenting authors to consider the following:

The time slot for each presentation is:

  • Invited papers: 24 min. (20 min. presentation and 4 min. discussion)
  • Regular oral papers: 19 min. (15 min. presentation and 4 min. discussion)

Time limits will be strictly enforced by the session chairs, who will warn each speaker when they are approaching their time limit. 

Prior to your session, and as early as possible — possibly first thing in the morning, during lunch or coffee breaks —please bring your presentations on a USB memory stick in MS-Power Point or Adobe PDF format and have the session assistant load your presentation on the presentation computer (Windows) and briefly test it to insure that it functions properly.

There will be one technician in each session, and Laser pointers will be provided.

If for any reason you are unable to present, please let the POF2017  Secretariat know by email at pof2017@av.it.pt.
