5. Session Information

Oral Presentation
Oral session is to be held in International Conference Room. The presentation time (including discussion) will be 30 minutes for invited papers, 15 minutes for regular papers, and 10 minutes for post deadline papers. All the speakers are requested to present the paper with a data projector. Prior to the starting time of the session, the speakers are asked to contact the session chairs and to confirm the connection between their computer and the projector.

Poster Session
Poster session will be held in Room 502/503 and 5F-lobby in the afternoon of Tuesday, 27 October. For the convenience of the participants, this session will be divided into two parts. The first half (13:45-15:00) is for authors with the paper of odd-number (H1, H3, …) and the second half (15:00-16:15) is for authors with the paper of even-number (H2, H4, …). Authors should stay by turns in the vicinity of the bulletin board for discussion. Each author is requested to display materials on a 180 cm wide and 210 cm high bulletin board.

Official Language
The official language of MOC'15 is English.

No photographing is permitted during the oral and poster sessions.
