Guidelines for presentations
Contributing a presentation to the Conference/Festival is optional - most participants do not submit a presentation.
A presentation can be:
- Performance by a company, a duo or a soloist
- Lecture with projection of video or slides (20 minutes)
- Class (30 minutes)
- Exhibition and sale of your publications or produce.
For each presentation a separate file must be submitted prior to the congress, to be included in the proceedings. This text can be accompanied by pictures, music or video samples.
Time allowed Lecture: 20 minutes (including questions by the audience); Classes 30 minutes; Performances 5 to 10 minutes on stage.
Publication The Conference proceedings will be published as a DVD. This DVD will be distributed world wide in many thousands of copies.
Languages Working languages are English and the language of the hosting country; other languages can be used, without simultaneous translation.
Texts 6,000 words maximum for each presentation.
Format Send your text by email as .doc or .ppt format. Send also a printed copy or a DVD if you wish. Have your text corrected by a person very competent in the language used, in order to ensure it is absolutely ready for publication. Formats: see table below.
Deadline Send a description of your presentation (full text, eventually accompanied by pictures, video and/or music) at least one month before the opening day in order to be included in the program and the proceedings DVD.
Structure of texts Divide your text into sections, each with a numbered heading. Start with your name, the title of the presentation, an outline, then the sections of your development of the theme. Include a short presentation of the author (profile, CV) in the text.
Content of other texts Texts accompanying a lecture, a class, a performance or an exhibition are brief or detailed descriptions. Send a separate text for each presentation, following the guidelines above.
Networking Bring a number of printed copies of your text, and sufficient brochures or other printed material to distribute (you will need many visiting cards too).
