Please bear these points in mind:
  • Please incorporate the conference’s theme in your abstract and presentation - as well as providing opportunities for networking, and presenting; the conference is about progressing ideas and exchanging insights.
  • Choose a focus for your presentation to discuss an aspect of your research in depth. This would help to promote more focused debate and feedback from the audience.
  • Rule of thumb: each slide takes about 1-2 minutes depending on your speaking style.
  • The slides for a presentation should convey ideas, not details, use bullet points and avoid long paragraphs.
  • Backgrounds - limit blocks of text and paragraphs, stick to bullet points and images, videos, and audio.
  • PowerPoint is optional - you do not need to use PowerPoint. You can use alternatives such as Prezi; or even ditch the technology, and just speak or read. We are open to presentations in a range of formats.
  • Please practice your presentation before the day.
  • Please keep within the time limit. Aim to finish with a few minutes to spare.
On the day:

We ask that presenters are responsible for their presentations. Please bring your presentation to the conference on a USB stick and e-mail it to your own account as a backup. You should arrive 10 minutes early before the session starts to load your presentation.
