The time allowed for oral presentations is 20 minutes including questions.

Guidelines on how to plan and design your presentation:

  • The presentation file can be either in PowerPoint or PDF file format. PowerPoint files must be Windows and PowerPoint 2010 compatible. If you prepare your presentation on iMac please make sure to bring a PDF file for proper formats.
  • The number of slides should be selected according to the number of minutes allowed for the presentation. The session moderator will cut your presentation if the timing is not followed.
  • The text in bullet points on slides should be no smaller than 26 point, ideally kept at 30 point. This ensures that everyone in the conference room can read the slide and the presenter can use the slide as a guide.
  • Only one graph or diagram should be on each slide so that it is big enough to read.
  • Tables should be avoided unless the text is at 28 point.
  • Photos should be at a high resolution to overcome the inherent graininess of data projectors, but not so high that the PowerPoint file becomes very heavy (a resolution of 1600 pixels width is suggested).
  • Slides should be clean and free from distractions, although organisational logos, colours and styles are acceptable.
  • Ensure that the colours used are easy to read. Do not use yellow text or strident background colours.
  • Slides should have high contrast between text and background in order to ensure visibility where light levels are a problem.

Please bring your presentation to the conference on a USB stick. Presenters must arrive at the session room 15 minutes before the session starts, in order to copy their presentations to the computers. You will NOT be allowed to use your own laptop computers.


Posters will be exhibited during the poster session as part of the conference. Be prepared to enter into discussions with visitors at the session.
