Presentations and Posters

Official languages of the 23rd Helminthological Days are English, Czech and Slovak, but all participants are asked to present their talks (dealing with different topics of helminthology) in English (exceptions are accepted in the case of undergraduate students).


Oral presentations have a total length of 15 minutes, which should be partitioned as a maximum of 10 minutes for the oral presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. Some of the participants will be asked to present an invited talk. The duration of the invited talks is 25 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion. Session chairs will be asked to enforce the time limits.

Presentations should be prepared in PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx. format). English should be used in slides.


Posters sessions will take place at the conference room. The posters should be prepared by using sufficiently large fonts for the text. English should be used in posters. Each poster is required to contain the title of the abstract and the name(s) of the author(s). The posters should be placed at appropriate boards (marked by the organizer) at least 20 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Maximum size of posters is 100 x 80 cm. The presenters should stay nearby their posters throughout the session, and remove the posters after the session is finished.


All student oral presentations will be assessed and eligible for the Best Student Presentation Awards! Prizes will be awarded for the following categories:

  • Best Undergraduate Oral Presentation (1st, 2nd, 3rd place)
  • Best Graduate Oral Presentation (1st, 2nd, 3rd place)
