Information for Presenters

Information for Oral Presenters

  • Submitted oral presentations will be given a total of 15 minutes to present (approximately 12 mins plus 3 mins of questions)
    The online program will display the details of your presentation time, session chair, and session venue.  Alternatively, you can also see these details by using the Abstract index or Presenter index links.
  • Our preference is for presenters to upload their presentations in advance of the meeting, by 5pm on Monday 21 November.  This will allow us to preload slides onto the presentation PCs, which will minimise the changeover time between speakers.  Please follow the directions below to upload your presentation.
  • Alternatively you may bring your presentation on a USB stick or your own laptop.  Please note that your laptop will need to have VGA and/or HDMI output capabilities.
  • Please note that we only have available Powerpoint or Adobe Reader for PCs.  If you wish to use an Apple Keynote presentation, you will need to supply your own Mac laptop.
  • If you have embedded movies or animations, we STRONGLY recommend you pre-upload your slides to allow us to test them on our hardware in advance.
  • Please make contact with your session chair in the break before your session to check your presentation has been uploaded and/or your hardware works correctly.
  • The projector in the Oliphant Auditorium can display presentations with aspect ratios of 16:9 or 4:3. The Conference Rooms and NCSS Seminar Room projections can display 4:3 aspect ratio.


Information for Poster Presenters

A dedicated Poster session will be held late afternoon on Thursday 24 November as well as over the lunch breaks on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 November. Poster Presenters should note the following information in preparing their posters:

  • Poster boards are 1.8m tall x 1.2m wide.
  • You can find your poster board number from the poster desk at the meeting.
  • Pins for fixing your poster to boards will be available.
  • Posters should be on display for as much of the meeting as possible. Poster boards will be accessible from 8:00am on Thursday 24 November.
  • It is particularly important that student presenters be available during the designated session in Thursday as the Student Poster Prize judges will expect to discuss your poster with you
  • Posters must be removed by the conclusion of the event on Friday 25 November
  • The winner(s) of the Student Poster prize will be announced during the final session of the meeting on Friday 25 November.


Information for Student Poster Slam Presenters

Modelled somewhat on the 3-minute thesis competition, the Student Poster Slam challenges students to communicate the essence of the science contained in their poster to all delegates in up to 2 minutes!

Participants should note the following information:

  • The Student Poster Slam will take place at 4:10pm on Thursday 24 November, in the Oliphant Auditorium
  • You will have a maximum of two minutes and one slide ONLY to present your work
  • Your slide must be static (i.e. no animations or movies).  It should include your name and poster title (you can abbreviate the title if needed).  
  • Note that your slide will be combined with those of the other Poster Slam presenters and turned into a single pdf presentation file.  The session chair will advance to the next slide after exactly two minutes, so you must be ready at the lectern to start speaking as soon as your slide is shown.
  • Please email your slide to the Events Officer by Monday 21 November
  • The winner(s) of the Student Poster Slam will be announced during the final session of the meeting on Friday 25th November.
