In order to allow the sessions to run smoothly, and in fairness to other presenters, please note that all presentations are expected to adhere strictly to the
Invited Speakers in each Topic Session have been allocated 20-minute and 40-minute time slots.
Invited Presenters with a 20-minute time slot should plan for a 15-minute presentation followed by 4 minutes for questions, discussion and a 1-minute transition to the next presenter.
Invited Presenters with a 40-minute time slot should plan for a 30-minute presentation followed by 9 minutes for questions, discussion and a 1-minute transition to the next presenter.
Contributed Presentation Speakers in each Topic Session have been allocated 20-minute time slots.
Presenters should plan for a 15-minute presentation followed by 4 minutes for questions, discussion and a 1-minute transition to the next presenter.
Session Convenors must ensure that the above time allocations are respected.
In the event that a scheduled presentation is cancelled/unavailable, Session Convenors are requested to continue on the original schedule, using the time for an extended question period or discussion. This will allow meeting participants to move amongst the parallel sessions to attend selected presentations at their scheduled time.
Presenters are strongly encouraged to use the PowerPoint "Widescreen (16:9)" slide size setting. We are using HD projectors set up for the Widescreen (16:9) setting which will enhance the viewing experience.
As this is a very tight event with regards to time between presenters, we only accept *.pptx or *.ppt files.
Any other formats might or might not function, and there is no time for finding out why, thus leaving the presenter with no visual enhancement to the oral presentation.
