Presentation Guidance

Oral Presentations:

Presentations are 20 minutes in length. It is recommended that your presentation last approximately 15 minutes in order to provide ample time for questions afterward.

Presenters do not need to bring their own PC, as a Windows based laptop with Internet access will be installed at the session room. Presenters will need to upload their PPT to the computer of their respective lecture room the morning of their presentation, to ensure fluidity between sessions. Although the PC will have Internet access, it is advised that presenters bring their PPT on a USB in the case that Internet access is lost. If you are going to be using special equipment, such as slide projectors, you should be at the meeting room 15 minutes before the start of your session to ensure your presentation will work properly.

All presentations need to be in either PowerPoint (PPT) or PDF format, and titled correctly: “DayofPresentation_AuthorSurname.FileFormat”

  • Example: “Mon_Hunsucker.ppt”
  • Example: “Tue_Ralston.pdf”

Poster Presentations:

Poster Presentations are scheduled for Tuesday (June 26) from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, at the Radisson Hotel Oceanfront in Melbourne.

Presenters should arrive half an hour prior to the commencement of the Poster Reception to ensure enough time for set up.

Drinks and appetizers will be made available for the duration of the reception.

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE: Posters must be approximately 3' x 4' (feet) and in portrait orientation (91.5cm x 122cm OR 36in x 48in).
