PICO – Presenting Interactive COntent®

PICO is short, precise, and scientific. PICO is bringing the advantages of both, oral and poster, together into an innovative type of presentation which opens the opportunity to be interactive. Every PICO author presents first his/her work orally. But afterwards, all session attendees have enough time to watch the presentation again, to hold discussions with the author and colleagues, and to network.

A PICO presentation might be a Power Point one, a movie, an animation, or simply a PDF showing your research on a display. A PICO session takes place at the PICO spot which is a combination of an audience sitting in front of a screen together with a number of touch screen displays (PICO screens). The PICO session starts with a 2-minutes-madness, where all authors present the essence of their work in 2 minutes each. Thereby, time is reserved for one PICO presentation to provide a 10-minutes-introduction. Afterwards, the audience is using the PICO screens spread in the PICO spot to view again their PICO presentation(s) of interest. Authors are standing next to their scheduled screen to show their PICO presentation. A PICO presentation should be composed in a way to fulfil both requirements in one file, the 2 minute overview as well as the extensive viewing afterwards. To give you an idea how your PICO could look like please see the examples from the past conferences below:

  • Stolk et al. (2013)
  • Canli et al. (2015)
  • Varol & Ünlü (2015)
  • Valters et al. (2015)
  • Roller (2015)
