All Program in HTML format (as of Jun 29)

Oral presentations including invited talks are given in four sessions.

Exhibition by sponsers is presented in the main hall from July 4 afternoon to July 7 morning.

Poster sessions are also held in the main hall with drinks and light meals provided for free. The drinks are supported by some exhibitors.
Each poster board is 1.8m in width and 2.2m in height.

Wireless and wired connection to the internet is available for your notebook pc at the Main Hall. Internet access is also available via the computers provided in the Internet Room.

Oral Presentation Guideline


Type Presentation Discussion
Plenary 40 min 5 min
Invited 25 min 5 min
Generic 10 min 5 min


Speakers can use a digital projector for PC or an overhead projector for transparencies as described below. A laser pointer and a lapel microphone will be also provided.
We regret that slides and video tapes may NOT be used.

To speakers who use your own laptop PC.

Your PC should have a mini D-sub 15-pin output (female), a standard monitor terminal, to be connect with the projector. The power supply is AC100V, 50Hz, with the plug type A, which has two flat blades without GND.

In case of a connection problem, you should bring a copy of your presentation in a CD-R or a USB memory stick, which can be used with our backup computers that have the latest version of PowerPoint on Windows XP and MacOSX. But please do NOT rely too much on our computers since they may not work properly for various reasons, such as the version inconsistency of PowerPoint. We strongly recommend that you also bring transparencies as a means of last resort.


You should confirm your PC and storage media work properly with our equipments at the preview room (Meeting Room 103), well in advance before your session. You can also consult the technical assistants there.

Please go to the conference room 30 minutes before your session and introduce yourself briefly to the chair. The technical assistants will connect your PC to the projector or install your presentation files into our PC. Each conference room is equiped with a multi-input PC switcher. All PCs for a session should be connected to it before the session starts.

Poster Presentation Guideline

Poster sessions are scheduled from July 4 to 6, 17:45-20:00 in the Main Hall. Each poster board is 1.8m in width and 2.2m in height, with a small piece of paper, e.g., Pos-100 for Mon-Pos-100.

Your poster should be mounted on the board from 8:00 -13:30 on the day of your presentation and removed immediately after the session.
Pushpins will be provided for mounting posters. We are not responsible for the posters left on the board after the session.

You should prepare for your poster in advance of the conference. There is no equipment available for printing your poster in the convention center.
