IOP Conferences


The conference consists of morning and afternoon sessions of contributed and invited talks. It will start at approximately 09:00 on Monday 19 April and end at 15:00 on Wednesday 21 April 2010. A welcome reception will be held on Sunday 18 April for early arrivals.

STFC Town Meeting
The STFC Town Meeting will take place on Monday 19 April at 13:00.

Presenters’ Instructions

The lecture theatre is equipped with the following audio-visual equipment:

  • Data projector
  • PC / Laptop with PowerPoint facilities (Office 2007 and Windows XP)
  • Laser pointer

Speakers wishing to use additional audio-visual equipment or intending to present from a Macintosh computer are asked to email before the conference.

Speakers are requested to bring their presentations on a CD or USB memory stick and preload their file onto the PC located in the lecture theatre. Speakers should save their presentation into the appropriate pre-named session folders pre-set on the desktop and files should be saved by speakers surname and initial. To optimise compatibility, particularly for the inclusion of multimedia components, PowerPoint presentations should have been saved using PowerPoint’s “Package for CD” facility. Direct connection of personal laptops (with set up in the break prior to the corresponding session) is an acceptable but not preferred alternative.

The lecture theatre is reasonably large, and speakers should use a minimum 15-point font size in PowerPoint slides to ensure legibility.

Presenters are asked to prepare their talks to match the allocated times which will be rigidly enforced by session chairs.

Poster presentations
Posters will be on display from Monday 19 April to Wednesday 21 April in the Pentland West Room. A dedicated poster session will take place on Monday at 17:25 - 19:00. Authors should be next to their board during this session to discuss their work with other conference attendees.

Posters should fit within an area of 1200mm x 900mm in a landscape orientation. Velcro will be provided for delegates to fix their posters to their board.

Posters can be displayed from 08:30 on Monday 19 April and must be removed by 15:30 on Wednesday 21 April. Although organisers will endeavour to save poster material, no guarantee can be made for posters not removed at the correct times.
