Oral presentation
Duration of oral presentations is limited to maximum of 12 minutes + 3 minutes for the discussion. Chairmen will be additionally instructed to take care of the timing to ensure time schedule functioning and enable switching between the sessions.

Exceptionally, Scientific Board will estimate and suggest 30 min duration of some oral presentations.
