Oral Presentations Guidelines
Each oral presentation is allocated 10 to 15 minutes time slot, some keynotes have been given 30 minutes. If your slot is 10 minutes, please plan for an 8 minute presentation and 2 minutes for questions. If your slot is 15 minutes, plan a 12 minute talk with 3 for questions. If you have been given a 30 minute slot, please allow 5 minutes for discussion. Time slots in the program will be strictly observed. Your time slot should be included in the email above, but please check the programme again closer to the meeting as changes may occur.
The only presentation file types that will be accepted are PowerPoint presentations and .pdf format. We recommend sending your presentation in advance on or before 15 August 2016 to email@example.com.You can upload your files onto the supplied laptop in the Speakers’ Room (Boardroom 1, Level 3) any day before but no later than 3 hours prior to your session of presentation. If your graphics or video clips are not imbedded in your presentation, be sure to upload them in Speakers’ Room and/or bring them to the meeting as well. If you have videos, etc., it is strongly recommended that you check your presentation in the Speaker’s room at least 24 hours in advance of your presentation time. Here is the specific resolution/ screen size (1 x Sanyo 3,000ansilumens LCD Projector & 1 x 6’ft x 8’ft Rear/Front Cinefold).
You should meet your session chair in the presentation room 5 minutes before the beginning of your session. You are requested to be in attendance for the whole session.
After the conference all presentations will be archived on the SCAR website, if you do not want your presentation made public, you are asked to notify the SCAR Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 August 2016 with the following information: Presenting author, title of presentation, date, time, and room presented and your reason for not wanting it made public.
- The panel size provided is approximately 1m width x 2m height.
- The poster should be displayed vertically (portrait), with the A0 size
(84.1 x 118.9cm or 33.11 x 46.81 inches).
- Be sure to include the title, author names and affiliations and the email
address of the main contact.
- We suggest that you place the information sequentially beginning with the
introduction, methods, results, discussions, conclusion and references
- Make the display as self-explanatory as possible. Keep the text to a minimum,
emphasize graphics (tables, graphs, pictures), and make sure every item in
your poster is necessary.
- Use a type size that can be read easily from a considerable distance (4 feet or
more). Select a legible font such as Times New Roman, Arial or Calibri and
use contrasting colours. Remember that 25% of the audience is likely colourblind,
so choose colours carefully.
- We suggest that poster presenters be at their poster during coffee breaks
- Materials should be attached to the poster board with Velcro. Participants are
encouraged to bring their own Velcro.
- Posters should be brought to the conference and not mailed. The Organising
Committee cannot be responsible for lost or mishandled posters.
- Presenters are responsible for posting and removing their own materials.
- No audio-visual equipment may be used during the poster presentation.
- For tips on designing a good poster, we suggest watching the APECS
webinar "The Art of the Poster Session" https://vimeo.com/17646765
