fifth international symposium on recurrence plots Loyola University

August 14-16, 2013

Recurrence plot symposium Chicago 2013.

Important Note
The speakers have to upload their presentation to the computer in the lecture hall in advance of their talk (in the morning of the day of their talk). The time for the talk is 17 min, plus 3 min discussion.

Both MacOS and Windows machines will be available, installed with standard presentation software (PowerPoint, Acrobat, Preview, and Keynote). You may also bring your own computer or presentation device provided that it is fitted with the appropriate VGA output and that you are capable of installing and testing the machine prior to the scheduled session time.

The prefered size of the posters is A0 or ArchE portrait (i.e. higher than wide).
