Conference format

The Conference runs from 12:30 on Wednesday 10th April, until 17:00 on Friday 12th April. There will be two 1.5 hour sessions on Wednesday, four 1.5 hour sessions on Thursday and four 1.5 hour sessions on Friday. Presentations will be 15 to 20 minutes in length (timing to be decided by 1st April 2019) including up to 5 minutes for any questions.

The formal dinner will be held in Goldsmiths' Hall, a 15-20 minute walk from the University.

Recommendations for speakers

In contrast to other conferences, UKACM2019 is asking for presenters to bring A4-sized paper sheets containing their hand-written presentation. These sheets are to be used with an overhead projector, instead of using Beamer, Prezi, Keynote, PowerPoint (or similar) electronic slides. If you wish to show a computer-generated figure, then that should be printed and placed on the overhead viewer. If you wish to show a video (as part of your presentation) of a dynamic process, then that must be loaded on the auditorium computer before the start of your session. While the use of hand-written sheets might appear unorthodox and retrogressive, it can offer a far more creative and visually engaging experience for the viewer. This is a technique widely adopted in some areas of theoretical physics (see Sir Roger Penrose) and the late great Mike Crisfield. Some presenters might wish to add details to the sheets during the presentation. Of course, the opportunity to provide highly polished, highly formatted output is available to all presenters when preparing their abstracts.

If you are bringing your own laptop to run a short video, ensure that you have the necessary leads/converters/adapters and video software so that your machine will connect with the auditorium VGA socket and 240AC UK power outlet.
