Key-note presentations for each session are 20 minutes plus 9 minutes for questions, 1 minute is reserved for setting up the following presentation (30 mins in total)

Short orals for poster presentation in the Open session of sedimentological studies are 3 mins at maximum

Please ensure your presentation does not exceed these time limits.

Please prepare your oral presentation in a Power Point (ppt, pptx) or pdf format named “Lastname_firstname_sessionnumber.ppt(x)/pdf”. The presentation will be displayed on screen by video projector.

Authors are requested to upload their presentations directly in the slide center located in the Earth Science Department (Room 12) within the half-day before the beginning of the oral block. Assistance will be available for help. Please note, it is not possible to load the presentations in the meeting rooms, they must be brought to the speaker ready room to be loaded centrally.


Key-note presentations for each session are 20 minutes plus 9 minutes for questions, 1 minute is
reserved for setting up the following presentation (30 mins in total).

Instruction for preparation are the same as for the standard oral presentations (see above).
Authors should keep in mind that SKTs have been given double time (30’ including questions, instead than 15’) as they are supposed to illustrate a specific research framing it in the more general context of the present-day state of the knowledge in their field. The aim is 1) to attract specialists in other fields that like to have a sense of what is going on in different scientific areas and 2) to stimulate discussion among colleagues (9’ have been foreseen for that).


Each poster must be in PORTRAIT format, printed and should not be bigger than AO (118cm height and 84cm width). Any poster printed in landscape or larger than AO may not be displayed at the congress. Poster display time is 08:30 to 19:00 daily in Museum of Classical Arts. The author is expected to be available for presentation next to their poster during poster sessions. Poster sessions will take place on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th September from 17pm to 19 pm, and on Friday 13th September from 16 pm to 18 pm, according to the session program.

Presenters have access to the Museo di Arte Classica from 8.30am each morning and they are responsible of setup of their poster in the morning. Assistance will be available for help and fixing material.

Posters should remain in situ for the day and authors are responsible for dismantling their poster in the evening before 19:00 pm.


The IAS (International Association of Sedimentologists) is a premier, international scientific association dedicated to the publication, discussion, and interchange of research results in sedimentary geology. The purpose of the IAS Code of Conduct is to ensure that all activities sponsored by the IAS are in agreement with the generally accepted ethics rules and
the mission of IAS. Leading principles are honesty, carefulness, transparency, openness, independence, responsibility, and democracy. IAS meetings, which are open to IAS and non-IAS members including those interested in and from neighbouring disciplines, are among the most respected scientific meetings in the global field of sedimentology. IAS-sponsored meetings foster the exchange of scientific ideas through respectful and open dialogue. Together with the IAS, the meeting organizers are committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all participants. All meeting participants, including but not limited to attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, staff, service providers, are expected to abide by the IAS Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct applies to all IAS meeting-related events.
IAS considers the neglect of these rules as being equal to a scientific misconduct.
Treat all participants with equal respect and consideration.
Critique ideas rather than individuals.
Avoid personal attacks directed toward other participants and organizations.
Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert event organizers if you notice a potentially dangerous situation, unsafe behaviour or someone in distress.
Respect the rules and policies of the host country, meeting venue, hotels, contracted facility, and/or any other venue.
Permission must be sought from the presenter or author to take photographs, movies or to undertake other forms of recording of any presentation.
