Presentation Guidelines:

The following guidelines are to be observed by all presenters in order to facilitate both the

presenters and the conference program. Once accepted and duly registered, all oral

presentations have been scheduled in 15-minute sessions within the conference schedule.

  • It is important to design your talk to fit within a 15-minute timeframe. This will allow 5-minutes for questions and discussion and 5-minutes for movement between

presentations. The Chair of each session will be instructed to ensure that the time

allocated is followed.

  • All presenters of a respective session should arrive in the room at least ten minutes prior to the start of the session to both upload their presentations on the computer using a USB memory stick and to introduce themselves to the Chair. Please remember to bring your presentation on a USB.
  • You will not be able to use your own computer for your presentation.
