Oral Presentations Guidelines

  1. Multimedia projector
  2. Computer
  3. Screen
  4. Remote slide advancer and laser pointer
All speakers are required to be at the session venue 30 min before the start of the session and to upload your presentation file. We recommend you bring your memory stick with copies of your presentation to the meeting. Personal laptops cannot be used in meeting rooms while giving your oral presentation. You must load your presentation on the computer in the room. At the end of the meeting, all files will be destroyed. Be considerate of other speakers and the audience by staying within your allotted time. The time allotted for volunteer oral presentations is 15 minutes including discussion and changeover to the next speaker. For some invited presentations, the time allotted may be different. Session chairs will hold you to the allotted time and will show a flash card 2 minutes before and 1 minute before your time ends. When answering questions, please repeat the question before you answer, so that the audience can hear the question.

Poster Presentations Tips:
  • Concentrate on a few main points, rather than crowding too much information into the poster. Highlight your title, headings, and subheadings with colors.
  • Headings and subheadings should be at least 25% larger than the text copy and should be in bold or semi bold.
  • Keep your text in short, concise, legible statements. Minimize complete sentences and paragraphs.
  • Text in upper and lower case letters is more readable than all capitals. Text should be at least ¼ ‐ inch (0.64 cm) tall and readable from a distance of 6 feet (1.8 m).
  • You may wish to bring a supply of business cards and a pad of paper for viewers to leave their contact information.
  • The conference organizers accept no responsibility for material left behind, lost, stolen or damaged.
