Guidelines for Presenters

Oral Presentations

All rooms will be equipped with a computer and data projector. The operating systemon the computer will be Windows and the available software will be Microsoft Office (including MS Word, MS Powerpoint, MS Excel). Oral presentations will be 10minutes in duration, with an additional 5 minutes allotted for questions and answers directly after each presentation. Due to the volume of papers scheduled, a strict limit of 15 minutes per presenter will be imposed. Presenters are asked to load their presentations to the available laptops during a refreshment break prior to their parallel  session or, for early presenters, at least 10 minutes prior to the commencement ofthe day’s proceedings. Technicians will be available to assist you in the presentation venues during all refreshment breaks and for 10 minutes before each parallel session. Presenters are encouraged to upload your presentation as early as possible.

Poster Presentations

Poster display boards will be provided for all presenters. The maximum poster size is 115cm high × 88cm wide (A0 paper size), and it is requested that posters be of ‘Portrait’-style orientation. Content must be easily read at a distance of 150cm. A poster printed on one large sheet is encouraged. Individual posters will be allocated specific spaces in the display area, according to themes determined by the Scientific Committee (these will be clearly marked in the conference programme). The display area will be adjacent to the venues for the oral sessions and refreshment breaks. Posters should be placed on poster boards as early as possible from the start of the conference and ideally should remain on display for the duration of the conference.

Guidelines for Chairs

Session chairs are asked to ensure that the 15-minute time limit per presentation is adhered to. In the case of a missing presenter, chairs are asked to hold this slot free and where possible, adhere to the timetable in order to facilitate delegates to move between parallel sessions.
