Information for Communicants

On this page, you can find all the information needed if you are presenting an oral or poster contribution. Specific details about each talk and poster can be found on the scientific programme page.


All talks are requested in PDF or Microsoft Powerpoint and to be uploaded to the conference laptop in the coffee or lunch break preceding the session. If you wish to use other software (e.g. Keynote) or use your own laptop, then please bring all necessary adaptors/connectors as these will not be provided. The timing for talks, which all have 5 min of question/discussion time, is as follows:

  • Special Invited talk: 25+5 min
  • Invited talk: 25+5 min
  • Contributed talk: 15+5 min


Posters are requested in portrait orientation, with an upper limit in size of A0 (85 by 120 cm). Posters will be attached to boards by pins, which the LOC will provide, and will be placed at the back of the meeting room.

There is a dedicated poster session included in the programme, which will include a 1-min presentation of each poster. Authors of posters who wish to take part in this are requested to send a single landscape slide (in PDF format) to stars2016@uclan.ac.uk no later than 2pm (i.e. the end of the lunch break) on Tuesday 13th September. After the 1-min presentations, there will be time for delegates to view and discuss posters with authors.
