Presentation Guidelines

The oral presentation should be 20 minutes long: about 15 min. for the presentation, and about 5 min. for the discussion (questions), with the additional 5 minutes to change the presentation.
PC with Windows/Linux will be available, however the presenters could use their own computer.
