Selected abstract submissions will be presented during Oral Abstract Sessions generally lasting for 2 hours. Authors will present their peer-reviewed research in a specific topic area, and presentations will be moderated by experts in the field. A Scientific Overview may be included in an Oral Abstract Session, as appropriate, or a moderator may provide a brief transnational summary at the close of a session. Comediators will introduce speakers and facilitate audience questions.
Oral presenters will be allocated 20 minutes for their presentation and 5 minutes for questions and answers with the audience. If the presentation exceeds 20 minutes, the moderator will shorten the Q&A period that follows the presentation.
Our experience indicates that up to 10 slides is optimal, allowing 1 minute per slide. You may choose to use more than 10 slides, but please be sure to complete your presentation within the allocated 10 minutes. The content slides should give an overview of the research with conclusions and future research direction.
We will support only MS PowerPoint or Apple Keynote. Please ensure that all presentations are in one of these supported formats. High definition (HD) projectors will be used for all sessions. Please apply widescreen formatting when preparing your slides (aspect ratio 16:9; resolution 1920 x 1080).
Speakers must bring their slides on a portable drive to the Conference hall so slides can be uploaded to the presentation computer. All presenters should bring their slides to the Conference hall at least 2 hours in advance of their presentation.
