Presentations Types for the Energy 2014

presentations types | energy conference

1. Paper Presentation

An accepted proposal for a single paper presentation (prepared by one or more authors) will be assigned to one of the following formats by the energy conference Program Committee:

a) Themed Session

This type of session is best suited for reports on completed research or scholarly work. Authors present summaries or overviews of their work, describing the essential features (related to purpose, procedures, outcomes or product). The formal oral presentation of work should be limited to 15 minutes. Presentations are grouped according to topic or perspective into these themed sessions (which may be 60, 75, or 90 minutes), with time provided after all of the presentations for Q&A and group discussion. Authors are welcome to include visual supports (paper handouts, computer slides, or digital displays) to assist delivery of their oral presentation. Please note that we cannot provide photocopying facilities at the Conference, but we will provide data projectors in each room. Multiple-authored presentations are welcome, although only one article may be submitted to the Journal based on each presentation.

b) Featured Session

On occasion, a paper may be identified by the Program Committee as one of special interest to a broad spectrum of the conference participants, although it is not appropriate, or feasible, to include it in a plenary session. In these instances, a single paper presentation may be scheduled for a specific block of time in the schedule. Authors will be contacted by the Program Committee prior to being scheduled in a Featured Session.

2. Poster or Exhibits Session

This format is ideal for presenting preliminary results of work in progress or for projects that lend themselves to visual displays and representations. In these sessions (generally about 40 minutes), a number of authors have the opportunity to display or exhibit their work and engage in informal discussion about their work with other delegates throughout the session. Displays may be posters (maximum 4×6 feet), digital/computer displays, artwork, or other visual media. Each display should include a brief abstract of the purpose and procedures of the work; handouts or copies of written material may also be available. Space for the poster or exhibit will be provided by the Conference, however all materials must be organized by the presenter, including posters, displays, handouts or other appropriate materials. Please note that we cannot guarantee a dedicated power source for each presenter. Authors may submit a formal paper describing their work to the Journal.

Authors who are unable to attend the conference in person may submit a proposal for a virtual presentation. Acceptance of a proposal for a virtual participant is based on the same criteria as that for an attending participant. We are developing new modes of participation for virtual participants, to expand the level and types of participation with other conference delegates. At present, acceptance of a proposal for a virtual presentation, with accompanying (substantially discounted) virtual registration, allows the author to join the conference in the following ways:

  • Abstracts and papers will be published in conference proceedings
  • Upload a presentation of your paper to the You-Tube
  • Submit your paper for peer review for the supporting Journals
  • An Author certificate, Proceeding book and conference materials will be posted to every virtual presenters after the conference
