Presentation guidelines

All ELECTRIMACS presentations are oral.

Every author presenting a paper is kindly requested to meet his/her session co-chairs in the session room 20 minutes before the start of the scheduled session in order to upload his/her presentation in the computer. This rule should be strictly followed, especially for presentations in the main conference hall (Blue Cube).

The presenter must provide the session chairs or the technical assistant with a PowerPoint or PDF presentation on a USB pen drive. It is not possible for presenters to connect their own portable computers to the projector.

A printed short bio of not more than 8 lines should also be handed to the session chairs, so speakers can be properly introduced.

The length of each presentation is restricted to 20 minutes, including questions. The authors are encouraged to conclude their oral presentation within 15 minutes (around 15-20 slides) and allow 5 minutes for questions and discussion.

No show papers will not be included in the proceedings nor be eligible for publication in the Special Issue of the Elservier MATCOM journal.


English will be the only language for both presentation and discussions during Electrimacs 2014.

Session Chairs

Session chairs have the responsibility to ensure that the schedule is strictly respected. Each presentation plus questions should not exceed 20 minutes.

In the event of “no-show”, the session chair should wait 20 minutes for the next paper or close the session if it is the last paper.

The session chair will read the brief bio handed by the presenter to introduce the speaker before his or her presentation.

Each session chair is kindly requested to fill a form (one per session) with the evaluation of all papers in the session and hand it back to the registration desk or email it to

All the rooms will be equipped with a video projector and a screen. A member of the conference technical staff will assist the session chairs for the duration of the complete session.

Internet access
