The Oral-poster sessions of the Student Contest will take place on the 16th and 17th of November from 17.15 to 19.00. 12 posters will be presented and discussed each day. Please check the program in the web (www.shaping4. org) for the day of your presentation and poster format.

The students will present briefly (3 min) their poster previously to further discussion during a conventional display and discussion poster session.

Each day all the 12 short presentations will be given in a single and dynamic session before the display and discussion session.

Presentation should summarise the main points of the poster. You can use this time to convey the key points of your poster: stating the problem, impressive results, key contributions, etc. This short talk should avoid the repetition of the opening sentence “this poster describes a method for…” to everybody, and allows for deeper discussions during the display session.

Since all presenters of a session must present in a limited time, we must ensure that the talks run smoothly. You can use PowerPoint or PDF slides (we suggest no more than 3 slides), but we request that they are supplied to us before the session, in order to pre-load them on a single common computer. We ask you not to use your own computer.

This contest is supported by the Trust of the Journal of the European Ceramic Society (JECerS) that will provide the award (JECerS Trust Award) for the best quality presentation as well as grants to encourage the participation of students.
