It should describe what has been done in relation to theory or practice or may focus on commercial materials or products. Its content should be relevant to the delegates who work outside the presenter’s local context as well. The presenter is requested to allocate time for questions and discussion.
The presenters are requested to present their papers with only occasional reference to their notes rather than by reading out previously prepared texts or overhead transparencies or slides.
The summary should be no more than 250 words and should explicitly outline the steps and topics that will be discussed in the paper. 5 minutes should be allocated for question and answer.
