Please refer to the Final Announcement and Program Agenda (in PDF format). This is the most up-to-date program agenda.
There are changes from the draft program, so please check this final program for your talk and sessions.

Presentation arrangements

  • Please note that you will NOT be able to use your own computer / notebook for your presentation. Please bring your presentation file (in ppt or pdf format) on a USB drive to the help desk for uploading during registration or the coffee breaks.
  • You can use either English or Chinese for your presentation. However, since we have a number of international participants, please help by putting some English translations for the keywords or main conclusions if you use Chinese for your presentation.
  • Since we have a very tight schedule and we are running parallel session, we ask all the session chairs to keep a strict time limit. The time allocated for all the talks in the parallel session is 15 minutes. We recommend the use of 12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for Q/A. Helpers will alert the speaker after 10 and 12 minutes. After 15 minutes, a timer will sound and we request that the speaker should stop the presentation (if still on-going) immediately.
  • For the parallel sessions, we shall try to maintain the posted schedule. If a speaker cannot make his / her presentation, we ask the session chairs to extend the Q/A period for the earlier talks, or to suspend the session and resume the session at the posted time.
  • We plan to post the presentations (in pdf format) on the conference website afterwards. Please let us know by email to 4raqm@ust.hk before the end of January 2014 if you want to show an edited version of your file, or if you do not want your file to be included.
