Presentation information

Presenting your work at MathPsych/ICCM

Is it your first time at MathPsych/ICCM?  Or perhaps your first time at an academic conference at all?  Not to worry — you are not the only one!  On this page you’ll find some basic information about attending the conference.  You should feel free to reach out to the Conference Chair (address in sidebar) with any and all questions.

Talks

MathPsych/ICCM runs on a strict 20-minute slot schedule.  Each speaker is given one 20-minute slot, and every talk should fit well within that and leave 3-5 minutes for questions and answers.  Session chairs will make sure that no speaker goes over their allotted time, and also that no presentation starts before the beginning of the slot. All rooms are equipped with a projector, a screen, and a cabling package, but not with a laptop.  All speakers should meet at the front of the room 15 minutes before the start of their session to meet the session chair and to copy all presentations onto one laptop. Larger rooms are equipped with a microphone and audio system.  If there is a microphone, you must use it.

Posters

The poster session will take place in the early evening of July 20th.  Presenters are asked to mount their posters around 15:00 and to attend their own posters from 17:00 until 19:00. Posters should be approximately 4 by 4 feet (120cm by 120cm) or smaller and should be readable from a few steps away.  Posters in portrait orientation are preferred.

Conduct

As an international academic conference, MathPsych/ICCM is a professional event.  As such, we want to ensure that no one attending the conference has to worry about how other attendees are going to behave towards them.  In general, you should treat the entire meeting as a work event:  conduct yourself professionally and courteously, and be sure to read and follow the Code of Conduct. However, this particular conference is not very formal:  the dress code is casual, and people tend to respect everyone’s opinions regardless of their formal position or rank.
