Author´s Guidelines

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations are always accompanied by PowerPoint presentations. The speakers are entirely responsible for the presentation content (order, graphics etc…). All presentations and questions must be delivered in English, as English is the official language of the symposium. Time reserved for scientific presentation is 15 minutes followed by 5 minutes of discussion.

Presentation Format

All presentations should meet commonly compatible format, preferably using PowerPoint version 2010 or higher in 4:3 aspect ratio.

Supported file types:

  • Presentation: PPT, PPA, PPTA, PPTX, PDF
  • Video: AVI, MPG, MKV, MOV, MP4, WMV
  • Audio: WMA, MP3, WAV
  • Pictures: JPG, GIF, BMP, TIF

When saving the final presentation to a USB stick, all video files if having any and all links to these multimedia files must be saved on the device with the presentation.

Depositing the File

Presentations must be handed over to the personnel in the SPEAKERS´ PREVIEW ROOM, either with a CD or a USB stick, as far in advance as possible and TWO hours BEFORE the start of entire session, where the presentation is to be displayed, AT THE LATEST. The presentation for an early morning session should be handed over the evening before.

In the lecture Room

All presentations will be sent directly to the lecture room through the internal computer network. Please, we kindly ask all authors NOT to come at the last minute with their own computer into the lecture room. All presentations must be downloaded in the SPEAKERS´PREVIEW ROOM beforehand.

Publication

As presenting author, we kindly ask you to prepare a PDF file of your presentation and submit it to ulrike@fve.org at your earliest convenience, but no later than 26th April 2017. The PDF must be named in the following manner: “Abstract number First authors’ last/family/surname, e.g. 0735_Smith.pdf”.

The presentation will be provided online via www.EAPHM.org to all members of the EAPHM and ECPHM from the beginning of the Congress onwards. The cost of becoming a member of the EAPHM is only €20. For more information of how to become a member of the EAPHM, please visit www.EAPHM.org.

This procedure will enable more scientists, practitioners and colleagues to read and study your presentation, thus giving your research a greater visibility.

The files cannot be assessed in a public domain and the overall process does not interfere with publication of your research in peer-review journals, e.g. BMC Porcine Health Management (the Journal of the EAPHM & ECPHM).

Poster Presentations

Poster dimensions, mounting & removing

The presenting authors are entirely responsible for the poster content (order, graphics etc…). All posters must be delivered in English, as English is the official language of the symposium. Please note the posters should not exceed the given dimensions, which are 90 x 120 cm, portrait orientation. Posters will be hanged on a standard 100 x 200 cm poster boards. The organizer will provide suitable fixing material.

Each poster board will be given a specific number, these numbers will be provided to authors via email before the symposium. Authors are kindly asked to make sure to mount their poster on the poster board with the number corresponding to the number assigned to their poster presentation (e. g. P 01, P 02 etc…). Posters will remain displayed within the whole symposium period.

Posters must be removed by their authors at the end of the symposium. Symposium organizers cannot accept responsibility for any material left behind, posters left at the end of the symposium will be automatically trashed.

The PDF must be named in the following manner: “Abstract number First authors’ last/family/surname, e.g. 0735_Smith.pdf”. Should you need any guidance on how to prepare a poster as a PDF, there is a very simple guideline “How to make a pdf-poster of your ppt-file”. This can be found here.

The poster will be provided online via www.EAPHM.org to all members of the EAPHM and ECPHM from the beginning of the Congress onwards. The cost of becoming a member of the EAPHM is only €20. For more information of how to become a member of the EAPHM, please visit www.EAPHM.org.
