You should keep an eye on the important dates, not to miss the deadline to upload the abstract, in order to secure your work to be listed and presented in the programme book, and to get a chance to be invited to present your research in a form of a discussion triggering presentation. Abstract submission is enabled through the MyHTCC5 online platform.
POSTERS AND INTERACTIVITY
Interactivity and active participation are the HTCC key words. We invite all participants to present their ongoing research in the form of posters at the HTCC5. You will have top-notch experts right by your sides, with whom you will have an opportunity to discuss your work, ask questions, or just show off a bit – why not, you’ve deserved it after all. We have seen at the previous HTCCs, that this form of interactivity is highly appreciated by both students and teachers. Although the abstract submission is not compulsory for the regular participants of the workshop, we vividly encourage you to do so.
The white plastic poster boards (HDF, high density fiber) of the dimensions 1.1 m x 2 m will be on your disposal for poster presentation. Poster boards will be installed in the lecture room. Appropriate material (patafix) for fixing the posters on poster boards will be provided onsite for your convenience. Please do not use any agressive material of your own which could damage the boards. And, that’s it, as far as the boring technical demands are considered. But, do make it scientifically sound, technically up-to-date and visually eye-catching. Keep an eye on the best poster awards news, as our partners provide plethora of attractive prizes for the best presentations.
DISCUSSION TRIGGERING PRESENTATIONS (DTPs)
However, our interactivity scheme goes beyond poster exhibition and random discussions. We will choose, among all abstracts which arrive on time, those which (in our opinion) deserve to be presented in a form of short oral communications. We shall encourage you to prepare these presentations as discussion triggers and not to hesitate to end them with a question mark. The people best placed to answer your questions will be in the room. How often do you have a chance to talk with the leading experts in your field?
SHORT INVITED PRESENTATIONS (SIPs)
We may feel that some of the submitted abstracts due to their quality literally scream to be presented in a more elaborate form. If so, we will contact the authors of these abstracts and propose to them to deliver a short invited presentation (SIP), typically 15′ or 20′ lecture with a short time reserved for questions and discussion.
