Length of presentations

The sessions are 90 minutes long and they have four presentation each, except "Process studies - II" that has five presentations. We will allow ~5 minutes for questions and switching to the next presentation so aim for a little over 15 minutes except those in the "Process studies - II" session that should speak for ~15 minutes.

Format for posters

There is no predefined format for the posters at Reykholt. You are free to choose what you think is most suitable.
