The following is a guideline on our requirements and to assist in preparing your presentation

Technical presentations must comply with the following requirements:

  1. Advise the ELGI by 20th October of your desire to present a paper.
  2. Please forward your topic & abstract to the ELGI, in Microsoft Office format.
  3. You will receive notification of acceptance by 30th November.
  4. Depending on the number of presentations, the conference programme guide allows 30 minutes for each presentation inclusive of questions and answers.
  5. Power Point presentations should be in wide screen format. The ELGI will provide a template for presentations which should be used; individual corporate logos can also be included but should not materially distract from the ELGI Logo. Do advise the ELGI of any special audio-visual equipment required
  6. Once a paper has been accepted by the ELGI Review Committee, the rights to publish in Eurogrease and use of the material in any way consistent with the objectives of the ELGI are considered granted unless specific written instructions to the contrary are received by registered delivery.
  7. Since the ELGI only has abstracts to consider papers for presentation, we reserve the right to reject any paper (manuscript) if deemed too commercial.
  8. The use of specific brand names and commercial aspects should be avoided. Any reference to products should be in chemical, scientific or generic terms.
  9. The ELGI reserves the right to refuse publication in Eurogrease.
