Presenter Information

Guidelines for poster presentations

Your poster will be displayed for one of the three days of the conference, please consult the programme for the date and for your poster number.

Poster sessions:

Wednesday 14th December: 16.00 to 16.30
Thursday 15th December: 16.00 to 16.30
Friday 16th December: 14.00 to 14.30

Presenters are requested to stand by their poster during these poster sessions. There will also be guided poster tours. Poster authors are asked to present a 3 minute presentation on their poster during these tours.

Posters may be A0 or A1. They can be either portrait or landscape.

Drawing pins will be used to fix the posters to the panels – we can provide you with this on the day. Staff will be available to assist you on the day.

Poster abstracts will be included in the conference programme booklet, listing your poster number and location so that people will easily be able to find you.

Please use the board which corresponds to your poster number.

Guidelines for platform presentations

Platform presentations have been allocated 30 minute slots: please present for 20 minutes, and allow 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

We request that presenters upload their presentation onto the desktop prior to the start of the session (either at the start of the day, or during the tea or lunch break).  There is PowerPoint (2013 version) available and there will be people available to assist you.

A Chairperson has been allocated to each session and they will be available to help you upload your talk as well as to introduce you and keep time during the questions and discussion.

If you have any queries or special requirements, please do contact the organising committee prior to the conference.  You may email us your presentation in advance of the conference, if you prefer, and we will upload it for you ahead of time.

Guidelines for lightning talks

Lightning talks should last 5 minutes, and we will be strict with the timing.

You should use only 10 slides, and you should set the presentation to automatically advance so as to keep to time. You can either set each slide to advance every 30 seconds OR you can ‘rehearse’ the talk so that it lasts exactly 5 minutes and the slides advance automatically but they advance at varying times (depending on the way you have rehearsed) – see instructions for how to do this here.

Unfortunately, there will not be any time for questions or discussion with the audience, although we will encourage people to approach you individually in the breaks.

We request that presenters upload their presentation onto the desktop prior to the start of the session (either at the start of the day, or during the lunch break): there will be people available to assist you. You may also email us your presentation in advance of the conference, if you prefer, and we will upload it for you.

A Chairperson has been allocated to each session and they will be available to help you upload your talk as well as to introduce you and keep time.

If you have any queries or special requirements, please do contact the organising committee prior to the conference.

Guidelines for workshops

Each workshop will last for one hour.

Presenters may wish to start the workshop with a short presentation of their work, followed by workshop activities.

Delegates attending the workshop will be seated around a large table. It is anticipated that there will be no more than 25 people at each workshop.

Please note: there will not be access to audiovisual equipment.

Presenters may wish to provide handouts to structure the workshop (allow for 25). Presenters may also wish to provide handouts for delegates who would like to learn more about their work, but who are attending an alternative round table discussion/ workshop.

Guidelines for parallel session round table discussions

Each round table discussion will last one hour.

The format for round table discussion will be:

  • 15 minute presentation
  • 45 minute round table discussion.

These timings are approximate: presenters may wish to spend more of the session on the discussion or vice versa.

The presentation should be aimed at a small audience, who will be seated around a large table. It is anticipated that there will be no more than 25 people at each round table discussion.

Please note: there will not be access to audiovisual equipment for the presentation, so please do not prepare any slides or PowerPoint presentations.

If you think it would be helpful, you are welcome to bring a laptop or tablet PC on which to show information, but please bear in mind the number of people likely to be at your table.

Presenters may wish to provide handouts to structure the discussion (plan for 25 copies). Presenters may also wish to provide handouts for delegates who would like to learn more about their work, but who are attending an alternative round table discussion.
