Prepare your presentations
General presentation guidelines
All presentations must be made in English.
Oral presentations have been allocated 15 minutes:
12 minutes of effective presentation time
plus 2 ½ minutes given to Questions
30 seconds turnaround time between speakers
NOTE: Times will be strictly adhered too, and your presentation will be cut-off if you go over time.
Presentations must be made in PowerPoint and will be run a laptop using Windows 10. Keynote and other formats are not supported. The use of your own laptop is not permitted. Presenter notes will be available in PowerPoint. A lapel or hand-held microphone and hand-held presenter-laser pointer will be provided.
Use PowerPoint presentations with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and save the presentation in PPTX or PPT format.
Please note that other presentation formats (i.e. Apple Keynote, Prezi, etc) are not supported.
Videos or animations should be inserted in the presentation and must run automatically.
If you have special fonts in your PowerPoint presentation (additional to those in standard English version of MS-Windows), please embed them when you save your presentation. You can specify this by Going to ‘Options’, ‘Save’ and then clicking the check-box to “Embed Fonts in file.” Then, save your presentation as usual. Failure to do this can cause layout/style issues in your presentation.
BRINGING YOUR FILE
Set the filename of your presentation to follow the following convention: SURNAME_Title
Upload your presentation to Dropbox by clicking on the following link before travelling: https://www.dropbox.com/request/IYeKnkaAiKMI7RCAJJD8
If your presentation is large (>500mb), you have trouble uploading, or you just need to update your already uploaded presentation, please bring it on USB stick to the Registration Desk.
We also recommend you bring a backup USB copy.
Posters & Poster Boards
The dimensions of the poster boards are 2.4m (7.87’) high x 1.2m (3.94’) wide.
The dimension for your printed poster should be a standard A0 size: 841x1189 mm (33.1x46.8 in)
It is very important that your poster is no wider than the stated dimensions above otherwise it would encroach on the space available for the adjacent poster - we will not accept posters that do not fit on the poster boards.
Materials for fixing your poster to the poster boards will be provided.
Power will not be provided at poster sites. Any electronic devices that you wish to have available need to have their own power supply.
These posters will be on display throughout the conference, so please make sure you allow time at the start of the conference to put your poster on the display boards. There are dedicated ‘poster sessions’ in the conference programme and it is advised that you be available with your poster during these time to answer any questions.
We also advise that you bring an electronic version of your poster with you so that it can be reprinted if necessary.
Please note, the e-Poster option is no longer offered at this conference.
