Guidelines for oral presentations

The duration of the different contributions at AICAT2020 are:

  • Plenary lectures (PL): 45 min
  • Invited lectures (IL): 25 min + 5 min for discussions
  • Oral presentations (OP): 12 min + 3 min for discussions

PowerPoint files with oral presentations should be given on site to the organizers as early as possible, latest before the first lecture on the day of the talk. If any specific facility should be required, please contact the conference secretariat in advance.

Guidelines for poster presentations

The maximum posters size should be A0 (841 × 1189 mm or 33.11 × 46.81 in) in portrait orientation (landscape posters will not be accepted).

We encourage all presenting authors to put a picture of themselves in an upper corner of the poster. The quick identification of the author will favour scientific discussions.

Each abstract will be assigned a poster number that will be communicated to the presenting author. Posters will be permanently exposed, during the meeting.

 Special Issue of Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry

Selected papers based on oral and poster presentations at the Conference will be published after standard peer review, in a special issue of the Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (2018 Impact Factor: 2.471).
The manuscripts should be submitted exclusively through the Editorial Manager system by selecting "S.I. AICAT2020" as article type in the drop-down menu.
