Types of Presentation

The AEGC 2023 Conference will include presentation types as follows:

Oral Presentation

The number of Oral Presentations able to be accommodated in the program is limited and presentations will be selected by the Technical Program Committee. The duration for oral presentation is planned to be 20 minutes including questions. This will be confirmed following paper selection. Presentations should avoid commercialism, and there should be minimal use of logos etc. Additional information regarding presentation format will be advised to the presenters at the time of selection.

Poster Presentation

The Poster Presentations will be displayed on a poster board without any audio-visual equipment. Poster presentations will be allocated to specific sessions to be advised at the time of selection.

The final presentation type will be selected by the Technical Program Committee. The Technical Committee reserves the right to relegate your short abstract which was accepted as an oral presentation to a poster presentation should an extended abstract is not received.
