Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentation Guidelines

Presenters, please be aware, and remain within, your allocated presentation length. The allocated time for Oral Presentations is 20 minutes including 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions. PowerPoint or similar presentations should be brought to the conference on a USB and be PC compatible. Your presentation should be loaded onto the lecture computer and tested before your session (during the registration time, coffee breaks or lunchtime) so that they run smoothly without any delays. Student volunteers will be available in each session room to assist with loading your presentations onto the lectern computer. All session rooms will be equipped with LCD/projector screens and a computer with Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe PDF reader. Please arrive at the session room at least 10 minutes before the start of the session and introduce yourself to the Session Chair and room assistant. You are required to hand over a written short biography to Session Chairs to introduce you to the audience. In your biography please limit the content to academic titles and graduation dates, institute(s), job functions and research interests. The purpose of the biography is to allow the Session Chair to briefly introduce you to the audience and should be less than 100 words.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

The poster presentation is intended for rapid communication. As such, keep the text to a minimum, emphasize images and graphs. Determine the key points of your paper and design the poster to reflect them. A visual flow based design (for example, the use of arrows or block diagrams) is recommended. Each poster will be displayed on a free standing panel kit that has a usable space of approximately 120 cm wide × 230 cm high, in portrait orientation. We recommend using an AO paper in the portrait orientation to prepare your poster. Nevertheless, you are free to use other paper sizes as well that suit your poster. In selecting a paper size please make sure that your poster leaves some margin from the sides of the usable space. The poster should be visible 1.5m away from the panel and you must select the font sizes accordingly. We recommend you prepare for a 5 minutes description of your work, which can be repeatedly used for various attendees. Your presentation space will be identified by a card with your paper ID number on it. Please display your poster in the break before your Session, all posters must be removed at the end of your Poster Session.
