What format should my presentation be in?

If your abstract has been selected for a talk, the standard duration is 15 minutes so you should prepare a talk of around 12 minutes duration with 3 minutes for questions. Your presentation should be in PowerPoint or pdf format and should be uploaded to the lecture theatre computer via USB stick before the start of your talk session. The email confirming selection of your abstract for a talk will also include which day of the conference your talk will be scheduled.

If your abstract has been selected for a poster, posters should be a maximum size of A0 portrait in order to fit on the poster boards. Please print your poster prior to arriving at the conference as we cannot guarantee that local printing services will be able to print it in time. Poster sessions are on the lunchtime of day 1 or day 2, depending on the symposium – the day of your presentation will be included in the email confirming selection of your abstract for a poster. The poster boards will be available from the morning of your poster session; if you have a poster on day 1 please take it down by the end of the day so the boards can be made ready for day 2.
