Authors’ Area



Presentations during oral sessions will have duration of 10 minutes plus 2 minutes for questions which will be addressed to authors immediately after their presentations. Opinion Exchange is a key characteristic of ICONHIC2019; therefore presenters and session chairs are strongly encouraged to stimulate discussion during their presentations and Q&A follow-ups.

As the conference is organized in parallel oral sessions, the time slots allocated to the presentation of each paper should be strictly respected in order to allow session hopping among delegates.


Authors are encouraged to use the MS Powerpoint Template below for their presentations either in the Oral Sessions (OS) or in the Knowledge Sharing Hub (KSH). For KSH e-presentations please save your presentation of 5-7 slides as a pdf file.

Presentation Template



The hub will be featuring a number of select papers and will be physically located on the networking area right above the conference rooms. It will comprise led screens and tablets allowing visitors to select through a friendly app which e-presentation to view on the screens. Each day, up to 20 e-presentations will be available (throughout the day) on the KSH stations

E-presentations may be either in the form of a 5-7 pages pdf file or of a short video no longer than 1:30 mins. It is advisable to use the template provided in this page as a guide for preparing e-presentations.


Presenting authors are requested to use the online forms appearing below to upload their presentation.


MANUSCRIPTS of accepted Abstracts

All manuscripts will be subjected to peer-review. The acceptance decisions will take into account paper novelty, technical depth, practical or theoretic impact, and clarity.

There is no restriction on the length of manuscripts, provided that the text is concise and comprehensive.

Manuscripts may be either in the form of a full paper or an extended abstract (in cases where the work has been published elsewhere and appropriate reference is made).

There is a limit of two (2) manuscripts per registered participant (full-delegate or student). An additional paper fee of € 100 will be charged for any additional manuscript submitted by the same corresponding author.


LBAs describe in brief late-breaking advances in any of the conference scientific topics that have not been published elsewhere. LBAs will be briefly examined for relevance and acceptability standards, but will not be peer reviewed.

The LBAs can only be presented orally as short presentations during the 5-in-5 session of the Conference or in the form of a poster presentation. Recommended length:  2 – 3 pages
