Paper Presentations
Each paper will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation, followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Presenters can send a proposal for on-going research or completed research:

Type of Research Details Details
On-going research • A clearly stated topic of investigation, supported by a rationale, should be indicated and may include a brief review of literature. Submissions can be empirical or theoretical. Presenters are free to provide any information related to their on-going research.
Completed research • In addition to the above guidelines, participants may choose to focus on their methodology, findings, discussion, or any combination of these aspects.


Poster Presentations
The aim of academic posters is to draw attention to on-going or completed projects or research. As standing displays, poster content should be brief and to the point rather than presenting complex data. They should be designed in an attractive and clear way, using diagrams, graphs, tables, etc. rather than long texts.

Poster dimensions and material
The recommended poster size is A0 size portrait (841 mm wide x 1189 mm long) or similar. Please, consider that the most appropriate material is paper or thin cardboard. Heavy materials may be difficult to be attached on the board. The organizers will provide the appropriate material to attach the posters.

Guidelines for poster presentations
All Posters will be on display on Wednesday, 25th June 2014.
• Posters should be mounted by the presenters from 16.00 – 17.30 on Tuesday, 24th June from 8.00 – 9.00 or on Wednesday, 25th June. Please contact one of the committee members for help.
• Each participant is supposed to be present during the poster session which will also be indicated in the programme of the conference.
• Posters must be removed by the presenters from poster boards from 17.00 to 18.00 on Wednesday, 25th June. Please contact one of the committee members for help.

Recommendation
The poster should be legible (the audience should be able to read the information from a distance of one metre; avoid dark letters on dark background).
