Oral presentations

The lecture theatres are equipped with the following audio-visual equipment:

  • Data Projector
  • Screen
  • PC with Windows and internet connection
  • Remote mouse/laser pointer
  • Lectern and microphone
  • Lapel and/or hand-held radio microphones

Direct connection of personal laptops is not permitted, so speakers must bring their presentation on a USB memory stick in pdf or ppt format to run on a windows pc.

Speakers should and preload their presentation onto the PC located in the lecture theatre before or in the break preceding their session.

To optimise compatibility, particularly for the inclusion of multimedia components, speakers should include the original files so that it can be re-embedded if necessary.

The lecture theatre is reasonably large, so speakers should use a minimum 16-point font size in PowerPoint slides to ensure legibility. Presenters are asked to prepare their talks to match the allocated times which will be rigidly enforced.

Poster presentations

Posters will be on display in the Entrance Hall Reception Area with dedicated poster session/s as scheduled in the programme.

Please note that during poster sessions, authors should stand close to their boards to answer questions and facilitate discussions on their work. If you are presenting a poster please ensure that you display your poster on the board number that matches your poster number in the programme. Fixing material will be supplied.

Posters must be no larger than A0 in size (118.9 x 84.1cm / 46.8 x 33.1 inches), in a portrait format. If your poster does not fit within these dimensions, we cannot guarantee it will be displayed.
