Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentation Guidelines

Presentation time is critical; each podium presentation is allocated 15 minutes. This time includes setup and questions. We recommend that presentation of your slides should take no more than 12 minutes, leaving 3 minutes for setup, introduction, summary, and questions from the audience.

Only Power Point presentations 97–2007 or 2016 (or higher versions) (.ppt or .pptx) and Adobe Acrobat files (.pdf) will be accepted.

Presenters are encouraged to have their completed presentation with them on a USB/flash Drive in widescreen 16:9 format.

You must visit the conference desk in advance of your session to load your presentation and ensure it has been checked and tested (Session 1 – before 08:30, Session 2 – before 10:30, Session 3 – before 12:00, Session 4 – before 15:15). You will be briefed on how to use the system when you meet with the audiovisual technicians.

If you have a video or audio file embedded in the presentation, we recommend using a standard video and audio codec compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

Poster sessions are an excellent medium for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. Thus, it is important that you display your message clearly and noticeably to attract people who might have an interest in your paper.

The dimensions of your poster must be A0 Portrait

You have been assigned to present your poster in one of the two poster sessions; however, we recommend that all posters are mounted on the posterboards throughout the conference.

The corresponding author and/or co-author of the poster is requested to be stationed by their poster for the duration of the scheduled session (please refer to the online programme for information on when your poster session is scheduled). Presenters are encouraged to engage the audiences in the technical discussion by making periodic presentations and answering questions.

For those people who have been allocated a demo-desk, a poster should still be presented alongside the demonstration. You should have received separate information about the demo-desk, if you have not, please contact the organising committee.

Onsite Information

Velcro will be provided to attach your posters to the boards. Your poster can be mounted at the beginning of the conference but must be removed conference by 5pm on Friday (March 22) (there are no scheduled poster sessions on Friday or Saturday). If your poster is left behind, it will be discarded.

Poster printing

All authors should print and bring their posters with them to the conference. There are no printing facilities onsite.
