Instructions for presenters

Oral presentations (talks, invited talks, and keynotes)

Talk duration

Regular oral presentation is limited to 15 minutes. We recommend that you keep your presentation to a maximum of 12 minutes to allow for 2-3 minutes for questions.

Invited oral presentations are also 15 minutes and keynote are 30 minutes.

Presentation file

We recommend that presenters use Microsoft PowerPoint or pdf as their presentation format. Keynote software will not be available and it will not be possible to use your own computer.

Presentations should be uploaded before the start of the session, possibly the day before.

Presentation preparation guide

  • The size of the screen allows for the use of both wide and normal screen format.
  • We recommend using font sizes that are large enough to be read from the back of a large room accommodating 140 participants.
  • Try to use strong colour contrasts to improve the readability of your slides.
  • Use scientific color palettes for graphs and maps to enable readers with colour vision deficiencies to see your data clearly.
  • We recommend that you use the symbol below to indicate whether you encourage or discourage the taking of photographs of your presentation or a particular slide.
  • You may wish to include the conference logo on the title slide of your presentation (see below).

 

Poster presentations

Poster format

The poster boards are in portrait format and the recommended format is A0 (1189 mm high × 841 mm wide).

Poster sessions

There will be two poster sessions during the conference. The poster can be left up for the duration of the conference, allowing additional discussion time during breaks.

The presenters are requested to be present at their posters during the two poster sessions.
