Presenter Information

Oral presenters

Please note that the use of personal laptops for presentations will not be permissible. Presentations must be uploaded to the designated submission drive prior to the morning of the presentation day.  If possible, early supply of your presentation to would be appreciated if you cannot upload to the submission drive yourself. If you require the link to the drive again, please contact the same email above.

The allocated time for your talk is 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion and questions. Keynote speakers and workshop presenters will be individually advised of their time allocations. Due to the tight timeframe, we emphasise the importance of starting and finishing on time. Session chairs have been instructed to ensure that you do not go over your allocated time. There will be a 3-minute and a 1-minute flash card to indicate that you need to wrap it up. Speakers are required to sit in the front of the room (for fast changeover of speakers).

Each room is equipped with a computer with data projector, pointer and various microphones. Please familiarise yourself with audio/visual equipment at your speaking venue during a break. There will be a helper on hand if you require assistance during your talk. All presentations must be in PowerPoint files with an aspect ratio of 16:9.

We recommend that all oral presenters bring a backup copy of their presentations in the event of any unforeseen circumstances.

Poster presentations

Posters can be A0 or A1 size. Please bring your posters to the registration desk during the Wednesday morning pre-conference registration session between 8:00 am and 9.30 am. There you will be given pins or tac and directed to your poster space. The poster viewing session is scheduled for Thursday 12.40pm to 2pm during the lunch break. We encourage all poster presenters to stand near their posters during this session. All delegates will be free to view posters at their leisure on other days. It is the responsibility of poster-owners to remove their posters by 5pm (the end of the conference sessions) on Thursday. Any posters remaining after the conference may be disposed of and not returned to owners. If you will not be attending the full conference, it is your responsibility to arrange someone else to remove your poster on your behalf.
