Presentation Guidelines

Instructions for Oral Presentations

Each abstract accepted for oral presentation has been assigned a 20 minute slot in the conference programme within an appropriately themed session. We recommend that you will take about 15 minutes for your presentation and leave around 4 mins of Q&A and 1 min for change over. Please keep to time. All presentations should be conducted in English and use PowerPoint software. Please ensure all power points are created for widescreen display 16:9. Please bring your presentation on a USB stick to the conference so that it can be uploaded to the Conference-dedicated computer in advance of your presentation. To ensure the conference runs smoothly, it is critical all presentations are uploaded to the computer in the Speakers’ Lounge on Sunday afternoon/evening or Monday morning. The Speakers’ Lounge offers presenters a place to check slides and animations are displaying correctly before their scheduled talk. Conference Assistants will be on hand to help with any technical difficulties. The Rupert Beckett Lecture Theater will be equipped with a computer, a video projector, a microphone and a pointing device. Each computer will have Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader installed. We do not recommend speakers present from their own laptop, but should this be absolutely necessary please bring the correct VGA interface adaptor. Should you have any questions please contact fc2018@leeds.ac.uk

Instructions for Poster Presentations

Each poster should be sized A0 portrait or A1 portrait/landscape, in English and using an appropriate font size. Text should be sufficiently large (24 point or larger), and the font should be clear and easily legible. For your poster, a poster board will be provided. Velcro will be available at the registration desk to mount your poster to the board. Please hang your poster on arrival at the conference ideally on 8th April evening. Conference assistants will be on hand to help.

Poster presenters are encouraged to be available to discuss their work during the coffee and lunch breaks. There is a dedicated poster session on the evening of 9th April from 18:30 to 22:00 and on 11th April morning from 11:00-12:00. There will be poster prizes for 3 WINNING Students’ posters. All students who have submitted poster abstract with students as the presenting author and registered will be automatically entered into the poster prize competition. However, if you have not highlighted it during the abstract submission and registration, please indicate if you are a student registered in a University and wish to be considered for the poster prize competition by an email to fc2018@leeds.ac.uk and your poster board will be appropriately marked. The 3 winning poster prizes will be announced and awarded on 11th April.
