OTHER IMPORTANT Notes to Authors of Long Abstracts for 10-IKC

1. Authors should be aware of a potential problem related to the quality of graphic images ( TIF and JPEG files ) within word-processed documents. Graphics may appear out-of-focus, or of unacceptable low resolution in the final manuscript.

2. Possible solution: Please ensure that line-work graphics are “inserted” ( using the “insert” “picture” function in WORD ) as the original TIF or JPEG image or ‘picture’ files, into the word processor document, not simply cut-and-pasted from another Windows application. The clipboard location used for “cut and paste” has very low resolution (72dpi ) which results in a reduction in clarity of your picture. Using the “insert” procedure will help to ensure that the hi-resolution of an image is maintained, and not affected by being initially ‘cut’ to the Windows clipboard, then inserted as a low-resolution file to your word processor.

3. Authors creating original TIF or JPEG images from illustration software (such as Illustrator or Corel Draw) should ensure that images are saved at a minimum 400 dpi and that “ANTI-ALIASING” is turned OFF when creating these raster files. The ‘anti-aliasing’ feature works well with photographs and images but will cause blurred or fuzzy line work graphics.

4. Authors should TEST PRINT their PDF file (not your word processing file) on a 600 dpi (or higher) printer before submission to *IKC to help ensure that the quality of their graphics is acceptable. Test prints on a 300 dpi printer will not necessarily reflect the quality of the final digital manuscripts.

The conference secretariat, will acknowledge receipt of each abstract within 1-2 weeks. If an acknowledgement is not received, please contact the conference secretariat. Please note that if your final short and long abstract are not received by 10IKC by 31st October 2011 your presentation will be withdrawn from the technical programme. Full payment of registration fees is also required for abstract acceptance.


The poster will be on display all week. Posters should be installed from 10am on Monday 6TH February, 2012 and removed on Saturday, 11th February, 2012 between 4 and 5pm. The 10-IKC will not be responsible for posters left up after this time. All persons presenting posters are encouraged to submit full manuscript for the conference proceedings. Each posters space will be rectangular poster board with dimensions 1.5m horizontal and 1.5m vertical. The method of attachment is push pins. Manuscripts for all poster presentations are also welcome.


The main oral presentation will be fifteen minutes in length, plus as additional five minutes for discussion. Each delegate is limited to either one oral and one poster or two poster presentations. As in past conferences, it is required that all persons giving an oral presentation should provide a full manuscript for the conference proceedings.

It will not be possible to use personal laptop computers.

At this time the audio-visual technician will check you presentation for compatibility with their equipment. This is not an opportunity to modify the content of your presentation. Given the common technical problems encountered using LCD projectors, speakers are strongly encouraged to bring a backup presentations. Please note the 10IKC does not provide any facilities for the modification or preparation of your presentation.
