Instructions and format for oral and poster presentations

Oral presentation:

  • Duration: maximum 12 minutes to allow for 3 minutes of questions from the audience.
  • Please be aware that the screen size is 16:9
  • Presentations will be uploaded to the room computers that operate under Windows. You can choose to either upload your presentation during the conference, or send it in advance via e-mail. In case of the latter, please send a copy of your presentation to by Saturday August 26th the latest. If possible, we kindly ask you to use a file transfer website (WeTransfer, SURFfilesender, or equivalent) to send your presentation. After this date, only uploading during the conference is possible.
    Please note: we do not allow personal laptops to be used for presenting.

Poster Session

Instructions on the format of the posters:

  • Poster size: A0 (approx. 85 x 120 cm)
  • Orientation: Portrait
  • We will provide you with pins to fix your poster

Should you wish to not bring your poster, but rather print it locally, then you may find more information about the printing service at the following links: Repro Mercurius Ede and Copypoint Wageningen

While dedicated poster sessions are held from 12:00 – 13:30, your poster can be on display during the entire day of your poster session. We encourage you to hang your poster upon arrival or in the morning coffee break, and remove it when you leave the Aurora building. Any posters that are still on display at the end of the day will be removed and stored in the cloak room.

Poster prize:

  • If you are an early career scientist (MSc student / PhD candidate / postdoc), you are eligible for the WSC2023 poster prize. Please pick up a poster prize candidate sign at the reception desk in Aurora, and hang this next to your poster number. This way, the jury knows that you are eligible for the prize.
  • Each day, a jury will assess all posters and select three posters. The nine winners (three winners for each of the three days) will be announced during the closure lunch on Friday. Jury members are very likely to come and talk to you about your poster. So please be there during the poster session to ensure they have the opportunity to talk to you.

No Social Media symbol

We love to share science! Wageningen Soil Conference actively uses X (formerly Twitter) and regularly posts via @WageningenSoil. Please use the hashtag #WSC2023 when tweeting about the conference. Some presenters may not want to have their research shared via social media. If this is the case, you can add the symbol below to your oral or poster presentation. We ask all participants to respect any ‘do not share’ symbol (this and similar symbols) on a poster or oral presentation and refrain from posting about this particular presentation on X/Twitter or any other medium.
