INSTRUCTION FOR PRESENTATIONS

Plenary speakers, time for presentation: 45 minutes (40 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions).
Invited speakers, time for presentations: 30 minutes (25 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions).
Working session presenters and session of didactic material presentation: 10 minutes for presentation and 2 minutes for questions.
Session chairs should inform contributors and audit the length of presentations. Since presentation time is limited, presenters should not expect to extend the time frame. The presenters should employ a PowerPoint or Prezi program.
The presentations should be in English, understandable by most of the anticipated audience, emphasizing research questions/the aim of the presentation, methods used, summary of main findings (results) and discussion.

THINGS TO REMEMBER

Going over the time limit only prevents further discussion (it cuts into the session’s time, which cannot be extended), and is disrespectful to the other presenters and the audience.
Session chairs are encouraged to be strict with time. Presenters will be interrupted and stopped by the session chair if they do not keep to their allotted time. br> Technology should be used appropriately to enhance a presentation. Presenters should set up (upload) before the session begins by USB to avoid time loss.

COMMITMENT TO PRESENT

If an abstract is accepted for presentation at the “3rd SPE Balkan Ski Conference” the author (or at least one of the authors for a multi-authored paper) is expected to attend and present the work.
Nevertheless, on submitting papers to the conference, authors must agree that if their paper is accepted for presentation, but they are unable to attend the conference, they will immediately inform the organizing committee before the conference starts. Presenters who do not appear to present their paper and do not inform the organizing committee can cause considerable disarray, lowering the quality of the sessions and negatively affecting the climate of the conference.
