Oral Presentations Abstracts will either proceed to Presentation or Poster format. A limit of 18 Presentations will be selected on the following criteria:
Relevance to the theme Quality of the ideas expressed New material Long term benefit to the knowledge base and usefulness to the region.
Presentations can be of any length, however presentation over 20 minutes will be subject to the editors discretion and must present a strong case for exceeding the reasonable attention span of the audience. Shorter papers of 510 minutes are encouraged and will be adjusted to fulfil the normal session allocation of three 35 minute papers. Presentations will be followed by up to 10 minutes of questions. Each paper will be summarised in Ladakhi for foreign papers and in English for local language presentations. Summaries will be limited to 5 minute introductions to each paper. Question time will be conducted in two languages. There is no simultaneous translation and these periods will provide a perfect opportunity for visitors to learn a few words of Ladakhi/Tibetan/Nepalese.
Presentations of suitable quality will be published in the on-line journal econservation magazine and subject to the editorial requirements of that journal. http://www.e-conservationline.com/content/view/28/113/ Presentations may be in any of the official ICOM-CC languages â€“ English, French, Spanish, and the second In Situ Preservation language, Portuguese.
