Presentation Guidelines / FAQs
Oral Abstract Presentations
Oral abstract presentations are 15 minutes. Please plan your talk to be 12 minutes in length, allowing for a few minutes of Q&A.
Please sit towards the front of the room in the session in which you present. The session chair will introduce and monitor the length of your presentation.
All mobile phones must be turned off while you are presenting. Mobile phones on silent will cause feedback with the microphones. A laser pointer and slide advancer will be available at the podium for your use.
All presenters must use the laptop computers provided by the conference. Computers will be equipped with Mac and PC software in all session rooms. Computers are provided for oral abstract presentations in each session room. There will be a PC available onsite with all received presentations to make any last-minute changes, or to test your presentation file. Personal laptops may not be used.
