Presentation Types

A brief description of each type of presentations that can be submitted to the SED 2023 Conference, including their duration, is given below:

Plenary Lectures

Plenary lectures are presentations delivered by recognised experts in specific scientific fields during the Plenary Session, with an aim to share conceptual or methodological innovations. These lectures shall be no longer than 25 minutes, and will be followed by a 5-minute discussion.

Oral Presentations

Traditional presentations delivered by one or more speakers with an aim to share research or work results, as well as innovative concepts, methodologies or tools. We strongly encourage students to submit papers. Student presentations are presentations delivered by one or more students aimed at sharing the results of innovative studies or projects carried out under the supervision of their professors as mentors. The presentation should be no longer than 10 minutes, with additional 5 to 10 minutes for questions.

Poster Presentations

Poster sessions provide a less formal opportunity to share research results with colleagues. The maximum poster size should be 1m by 1m. Presenters are expected to be by their posters throughout the scheduled poster presentation session. Posters will remain displayed for the entire duration of the conference. All the participants can opt for the poster presentation session. The total duration of all poster presentations shall be 120 minutes.

Virtual Presentations

They shall be sent as PDF files of presentations created in PowerPoint or some other programme, like those submitted for oral (multi-page) or poster presentations (one-page). Virtual presentations will be delivered using the Zoom platform.


The roundtable is intended to be a 60-minute group discussion on a specific topic, including up to 10 participants. Roundtables provide an excellent opportunity to receive targeted feedback, engage in in-depth discussions, and meet colleagues with similar interests.

Roundtable presentations typically include a 5 to 10 minutes’ presentation by the organizer to introduce the topic, followed by a discussion (about 45 to 50 minutes), feedback from participants (5 to 10 minutes), and conclusion (5 minutes).
