The duration of a presentation slot is 20 minutes. You will have 15 minutes for the presentation itself and 5 minutes for Q&A from the audience. Since lecture sessions are slated for five presentations totaling 100 minutes, maintaining your 20-time slot is critical.
A LCD projector & computer (Windows, MS Powerpoint & Adobe Acrobat Reader) will be available in every session room for regular presentations. You will need to submit your Powerpoint presentations as well as your pre-recorded videos no later than March 14th. Please ensure this is the final version of your Powerpoint presentation as we will not be collecting the presentations onsite.
Preparation of Visuals:
- Presentations will be collected via the CONFlux submission link when submitting your pre-recorded video. This must be completed no later than March 14th.
- To keep the conference on schedule, presentations from personal laptops will NOT be possible. In the case large movie files are to be shown, work with conference staff to ensure they load and play correctly well before the scheduled session.
- Files will not be uploaded directly to the local PCs in the lecture rooms. Instead, files will be uploaded via CONFlux.
- Presentations should be prepared for an aspect ratio of 16:9, which is the setting that shall be used for all projectors. Any presentations using 4:3 aspect ratio will still be viewable in general, but some parts may be too small for the audience to clearly see when projected in 16:9. As such, 16:9 is strongly encouraged.
- To avoid software compatibility problems with MS Powerpoint, speakers are advised to EMBED ALL FONTS in their Powerpoint presentation AND provide a backup PDF version.
- Speakers should arrive in their session room 15 minutes BEFORE the start of their session to report to the chairs. A proctor will also be available in case technical assistance is required.
• Limit the number of words per visual.
• Leave space, at least the height of a capital letter, between lines of text.
• All fonts, including that on graphs, should be 16 point or larger.
• Graphs and charts should have bold lines and symbols that contrast sharply with the background.
