It is essential that your talk is restricted to the 10 minutes time it is allotted; Session Chairs have strict instructions to enforce this and will stop presenters who run past their allotted time.

Tips for powerpoint presentations

  • Try to keep text slides as simple as possible, with up to 3 to 4 bullet points maximum per slide.
  • Ensure graphs and figures are clear; during a presentation explain the axes of graphs etc.
  • Try not to pack too much information into a 10 minute presentation. A maximum of between 10 and 15 slides should be adhered to.
  • Rehearse your presentation and ensure that it is of the appropriate length and time.
  • Cover the same material as that reported in the abstract.
  • In planning your talk ensure most of the presentation time is given to describing the results of your study.

Poster Presentations

  • Poster boards will be located in the poster hall (in the commercial exhibition).
  • The poster should be installed on Thursday morning before the opening ceremony, and removed on Saturday at the end of the meeting.
  • The poster session will take place on Friday from 11:00 to 13:00. All posters will be manned during the poster presentation session so you are requested to stand by your poster to present your data and answer questions from participants during this time.
  • Posters should fit within the following board space: 100 cm high x 150 cm wide.
  • To attach your poster to the poster board you will need to bring adhesive tape and scissors. (Please note that push pins are not acceptable).
  • In planning and designing your poster please try to ensure that it can be easily read from a distance of at least 2 metres. Poster titles should include the full title, authors and their institutional affiliations. The title should be a minimum of 2 cm in height. All lettering on the poster should be a minimum of 1 cm in height.
  • Likewise please ensure all figures and illustrations are easily viewable from 2 metres distance and have appropriate figure legends.
