Presentation Formats @ ERC

Papers

Paper presentations at the Emerging Researchers' Conference 2022 will be restricted to a 10 minutes presentation time, plus up to 7 minutes for questions. They will be scheduled in 90 minute sessions which will normally include 4 papers on similar themes.

A paper is submitted by one author plus up to 5 co-authors; 2 of the 6 authors can be listed as presenting authors. 

The submission consists of an abstract (600 words), a methods section (400 words), conclusions (300 words) plus references (400 words).

EERA will nominate a mentor/chairperson for each session who will take care of time and manage discussion.

Please plan your presentation in a way to allow some questions within your presentation time. We suggest that you end your presentation with a couple of questions in order to stimulate discussion after the presentation.

Ignite Talks (20 slides in 5 minutes)

EERA invites presenters to submit Ignite Talks. Contributions handed in as an Ignite Talk undergo the same peer review process as all other submission formats. Preferably, each session will have 3 - 5 Ignite Talk presentations with a chairperson prepared to engage participants in discussion. In some cases, the Ignite Talk presentations will be programmed together with paper and/or poster presentations.

An Ignite Talk is submitted by one author plus up to 5 co-authors; 2 of the 6 authors can be listed as presenting authors.

The submission consists of an abstract (600 words), a methods section (400 words), conclusions (300 words) plus references (400 words).

General Guidance for Ignite Talks

Ignite Talks have a fixed format in which presenters prepare 20 slides which automatically advance every 15 seconds. The result is a fast and fun presentation which lasts just 5 minutes. An example of a research-based Ignite Talk can be seen here.

To keep the time, the presentation software's timer needs be set so as to display each slide for 15 seconds before the next slide advances. Images are the key to an effective Ignite Talk. Try to find images that are illustrations or metaphors of your key points and/or use words-as-images.

All ERC Ignite Talks  will take place in a 90-minute session, in front of an audience and the mentor/chairperson. After the presentation, the mentor/chair and the conference participants can ask the presenter questions during a 5 - 10 minute discussion. Please ensure that you set up and practice the 15-second-per-slide timing in advance of the ERC! A video guide about how to set up the timing per slide in PowerPoint can be found here.

Posters

The ERC has Interactive Poster Sessions in which the authors present their poster for 10 minutes in a session, in front of an audience and the mentor/chairperson. After the presentation, the mentor/chairperson and other conference participants can ask the presenter questions during a 5 - 10 minute discussion. Each poster should include your name and the title of your submission, and submission number.

A poster is submitted by one author plus up to 5 co-authors; 2 of the 6 authors can be listed as presenting authors.

The submission consists of an abstract (600 words), a methods section (400 words), conclusions (300 words) plus references (400 words)
