Guidelines for talks and posters

For oral presentations:

If you have an oral presentation, please connect to the Zoom session at least 15 min before your session. The session chair will invite you to start your talk. You can share your presentation by sharing your screen on Zoom (see Zoom instructions). Please have your presentation already open on your computer before your talk.
If you wish (connection problems etc.), you can send us your presentation in advance ( The organising committee can then broadcast the presentation and facilitate the running of the session; in this case, you only need to have a sufficiently good connection for your voice to be heard.

We kindly remind you that each presenter slot includes max. 10 minutes presentation and 5 minutes questions. For the keynote lectures, 30 minutes presentation and 15 minutes questions are foreseen. Please note that you will need some time sharing your presentation, so, please respect the presentation time.

Questions can be asked in the Meeting chat; participants are also encouraged to ask oral questions (by raising the hand icon at bottom of screen) by the end of each presentation.

A Brown Bag or a Pre-supper informal panel Discussion, lasting for 30 min, will follow each theme of the conference. During that time, all colleagues having previously presented during that session will be requested to be connected for this open discussion. Conference participants can ask further questions during those sessions. Please feel free to bring your lunch and/or snacks during these sessions.


For poster presentations:

For poster presentations, two 45-minute slots have been allocated on Tuesday and Wednesday between the morning and the afternoon sessions.

Poster guidelines

You can create your poster using PowerPoint, Adobe Illustrator, Canvas, or any other appropriate program. Poster dimensions are as follows: The maximum width is 841 mm; the maximum height is 1189 mm (A0). Your poster needs to cover a single page. The layout of your poster can be either portrait or landscape. The file size may not exceed 25MB, and you must save your file as a PDF.

A short video must accompany the poster.
The video should capture you explaining your poster in no longer than 5 minutes. The video is designed for the audience to watch you present as if you were at an in-person poster session. When filming, adjust the camera view so that both you and the poster are always captured in the shot. Please ensure that the video is not zooming just on your face, portions of the poster, or alternating between you and the poster. The video can be recorded using a camera or a smartphone. Please give the following title to your video: "14th Euroconference on Rock Physics and Rock mechanics_Your Name." You need to send us your videos by the 25th of August 2021 by email ( We will make them available to all conference participants in advance.
If hearing disabilities, please contact us to receive more information on how to proceed.

During the conference poster sessions.
Poster sessions will run during Zoom break-out rooms. Each poster presenter has their own meeting link. Conference participants should have previously watched your videos. During the poster session, you will have 2 min to present your poster (main room); then you can discuss your research with those colleagues who join your break-out room. You can always share your poster during the poster sessions (for more info, please see the Zoom guidance file). Participants will be able to migrate between the different links to view the posters.

There will be a best poster award at the end of the conference!
