Scientific Program - days at a glance

Please check out this link to see the scientific program at a glance.

In our next ezine, 12 June, we will have the dates and times of every presentation.
Presentation preparation

Please remember when preparing your oral presentations, if your presentation has video content, you must supply all original video files along with your presentation. If you have embedded your videos and do not supply the original video files with your presentation, the videos will not play.

All presentation computers are PCs, so if you have created your presentation on a Mac and have photo content, you must supply the original photo files with your presentation, otherwise it is highly likely your photos will not display without the original file being present.

For poster presenters, remember, the maximum dimensions of your poster are 1,200mm high x 950mm wide, in portrait style only.

If you are presenting a scientific poster at ICRS 2012, you are invited to archive your poster on the ICRS 2012 website. Upload a PDF file of your poster here by Friday 29 June.
