Download guidelines for oral presentations

  • Presentations should be in Power Point (preferably Power Point XP but other versions are acceptable) and should be provided on CD (recordable) or USB stick
  • All oral presentations are allocated 20 minutes (10 minutes for the talk and up to 10 minutes question time). It is of utmost importance that you do not exceed the 10 min you have to present your work; otherwise the moderator will interrupt your presentation.
  • All presenters should visit the speaker preview room to ensure that copies of their electronic presentation are uploaded into the conference Audio-visual system (see below)
  • All presenters should arrive at their session venue at least 10 minutes before the start of the session in order to meet the moderator and become familiar with the room's audio-visual aids and layout. Your Power Point display will be electronically available in the lecture room where your presentation takes place.

Please consult the programme to check the date and time of your presentation.
