Presentations at the conference

Oral Presentations
Contributed talks will be held in 15 sessions and are scheduled with 8 or 11 minutes (depending on the study) followed by 1-2 minutes of discussion. 1 minute will be reserved to allow a smooth change between successive speakers. Please have a look at the detailed conference programme to find out about the length of your talk. If you are unsure, do not hesitate to contact the organisers (2019@zoowildlifehealth.org) or your session chairs.
Power point presentations require a USB-stick containing all necessary files. Speakers are asked to hand in their USB-stick at the registration desk upon their arrival to receive their registration documents. For technical reasons, individual laptops will only be hooked up to the projector in rare exceptions after prior agreement with the organisers.
