Accompanying guests are not eligible to present a paper or poster.
The following categories of presentation are foreseen:
- Invited talks, 20 or 30 minutes. By invitation only.
- Contributed talks, 15 or 20 minutes. Some talks of 5 or 10 minutes will also be accepted, notably from accredited or aspiring dark sky places in NZ.
- Posters, either A0 portrait format (W 841 mm; H 1189 mm) or A1 landscape format (W 841 mm; H 594 mm).
For talks, PowerPoint files with slides in the 16:9 landscape ratio are recommended. Bring files on a memory stick for loading onto the conference laptop in advance.
Please submit title and abstract of the talk or poster you wish to present. The deadline is 30 June. If the programme of talks is full before then, this deadline may be brought forward. Early submission is recommended.
