Proposal Types

The Science and Technology Conference is a participants’ conference comprised of numerous parallel sessions and selected plenary sessions. Participants are invited to submit proposals for 20-minute presentation.

A session of Conference involving a 15 minute speaker presentation, followed by 5 minute questions and answers. The chair's role is to introduce the presenter/performer, keep the presentation within the 15 minute time limit and manage the question and answer session.

We recommend against reading entire papers, and suggest that handouts (20 or 30 copies-please bring these with you, as there are no photocopying facilities at the Conference)
