Quite a few of the search engine terms that result in people coming to this blog involve presenting at EGU. This post will outline what’s available in the presentation rooms, pointing you to the appropriate pages on the EGU GA 2010 website.
The guidelines for oral presentations online. The link includes the equipment available in each room (laptop, beamer, microphone, laser pointer, ability to hook up your own laptop etc.). Oral presentations this year are only in time blocks 1 to 4 and in most cases are 12 minutes long with 3 minutes for questions. Please be in the presentation room in the half hour before the time block starts so your presentation can be uploaded onto the provided laptop or so you can connect your laptop up to the system.
There are guidelines available for poster presentations. Posters should be put up between 08:00 and 08:30 in the morning. Tape is available from the student assistants in the halls. You will have been sent your poster location (e.g. XY0439) in an email from EGU and it is listed online in the Session Programme details. You can locate the exact location of your poster using the online floor plans. At the end of each day, the student assistants carefully remove posters and put them in storage bins in the poster halls. These are labelled by day so you can retrieve your poster if you wish. If your poster is participating in the YSOPP, please print and display the YSOPP label and put it up with your poster.
The author in attendance time will have been sent to you. In some divisions this will be time block 5 for all posters, in other divisions it may any of the five time blocks. This year at the General Assembly time block 5 (17:30-19:00) has been reserved solely for posters (except on Friday).
Some sessions may have a poster walk through (in some cases this will be noted in the session details). This is where poster authors have a short amount of time to summarise their poster and find out more about other posters in their session. Other sessions will have a scheduled Poster Summary and Discussion session (a list of them can be found here). These may involve poster summaries and/or discussion points dependent on the session.
Timetabling at the General Assembly is in five time blocks as follows:
There is free tea and coffee available in the poster halls in the breaks between TB1&TB2 and TB3&TB4.
