ISIPT 10th World Congress



The Congress Programme includes several Keynote presentations and both Oral and Poster presentation sessions in the thematic order given in the Call for Papers. This section will be updated as papers are received, and sessions are finalised.  Please check here for latest details.  

Short Presentations will be requested for all Abstracts, so that they can be pre-loaded for display in each oral session, and for each poster session.  Oral presentations will be scheduled in short 15min slots (this should include 2 mins for one or two questions).  Sessions will be timed within global daytime giving continental timings in the evening in Asia; in middle of the day in Europe; and in the morning in America.  Poster sessions will be timed in the schedule to follow respective Oral sessions, but may then be viewed at any time.  Both Oral and Poster papers will be supported with interaction messaging for each Theme/Topic allowing delegates to ask public questions, comment upon papers, and allow authors to respond. 

Keynote presentations will lead two Oral Programme sessions and explore New Concepts and Applications in IPT:- 

Professor Saba Mylvaganam (University of South-Eastern Norway)  will explore Deep Learning for Radical Application of IPT.  Applications typically require comprehensive modelling and tailored design to transform raw IPT data into useful process information. The keynote presentation promises a shorter and more efficient journey from application concept to a working solution. 

Wadoud Hazineh, (Industrial Tomography Systems, with DEME Global Sea Mineral Resources Group) will explore Deep Sea Industrial Tomography  and demonstrates how IPT can operate in one of the most challenging places on the planet, to reveal and deliver new application opportunities.

The general thematic order (from Call for Papers) is:-

A - New Generation Systems for Wider Support of Industrial Applications:-
A1 Multi-modal and multi-spectral methods addressing complex process distributions.
A2 Multi-dimensional systems that radically extend length and/or temporal scales.
A3 Smart tomographic systems that provide direct application data, or process control.
A4 Human-machine interaction in IPT systems.
A5 Machine learning from IPT data.

B - New Developments in Foundation System Elements for Enhanced Process Interaction:-
B1 Excitation and response sensing methods and topologies for all modes:  e.g. acoustic, electrical, hard radiation, magnetic resonance, and positron-emission.
B2 Data acquisition architectures to enhance system performance for focussed IPT products.
B3 Integrated system design and packaging for special application needs such as intrinsic safety.
B4 Raw data processing such as direct inversion and high-speed reconstruction methods.
B5 Interpretation data processing yielding industry relevant information.

C Pioneering Industrial Case Studies:-
C1 Holistic study of industrial application for pilot investigation.
C2 Holistic study of industrial application for on-line control.

Outline Schedule - To be finalised – please visit this page to see updated information.

To provide an optimal Congress timing window that is not very late in the evening, or very early in the morning for some delegates, it is probable that Parallel A and B sessions will be scheduled with the overall outline schedule: -

Monday 13 September - Keynote paper and A,B Sessions

Tuesday 14 September - Keynote paper and A,B Sessions 

Wednesday 15 September – A,B Sessions

Thursday 16 September – C Session

Preparing your Presentation

Whether you have a short Oral or a Poster presentation, think carefully about the messages you wish to communicate.  Delegates will have a copy of your Abstract and are likely to view it while attending your oral or poster presentation.  Hence instead of repeating the Abstract contents focus on an interpretation of its key contributions to IPT knowledge and application: -

Introduce YOURSELF  and your THEME [Research group.. or Company interests] 

What is NEW in your contribution?   [Relative to brief overview of current state/limitations]

What are the ESSENTIAL DETAILS?    [Major aspects only]

Show EASY TO INTERPRET RESULTS  [Few clear figures, exploit colour to highlight key points]

Propose BENEFITS to IPT TECHNOLOGY and wider APPLICATIONS [Illustrate with clear examples]

Conclude with SUMMARY of key points [Leave on display for Q&A in Oral presentations].


Adapt these generic suggestions to design a short, high-impact presentation.  Create no more than 6 Powerpoint style slides including Introduction and final Summary slides.  

Oral content should consist of key phrases and images that you specifically describe in your talk.  

Poster content should also focus on key phrases and images but with more textual content to mirror the spoken description of an oral presentation. 

In both cases presentations should be simple and uncluttered, allowing the viewer or reader to focus solely on content.  It is not essential to write in sentences in any presentation.  Include institution or company names, logos,  author, paper name, etc., only on the introduction slide.  Do not distract the viewer or reader with logos, name and author headers, or coloured backgrounds, which lower readability on other slides.  A downloadable presentation template is available which reflects the suggested points for each of 6 slides: presentation-template.  Design your presentation to maximise impact and interest, rather than volume of content.

It is very stressful to make a hurried oral presentation that takes too long (the session chair will ask you to stop speaking);  or very disappointing if readers get bored reading a poster that has too much data and insufficient interesting information!  Test your presentation timing (oral), or depth (poster), with a colleague. If it takes too long to present, or too long to read; edit the content to describe key messages more concisely.   When completed Save As a filename in the following format, which embeds your which embeds your registration data: - 


where, PR indicates a Presentation file, DDDD is your unique 4-digit Delegate code (see Registration), and Surname is your registered name, E.g. : -

PR-9999-Einstein.pptx    .. we expect this presentation, and yours, to be popular!
