Presentations and Posters


Presenters: Please provide your presentations on a USB to the conference organiser the day before you are due to present.

  • Presentations need to be in Power Point format
  • 12 mins speaking time, 3 mins questions (Invited Speakers have  30 mins total)
  • Minimum font size 14 pt
  • Avoid colours that are difficult to read (yellow)
  • Ensure graph axis labels are legible
  • About one slide per minute is usually appropriate


  • Posters will be presented differently this year.
  • They will be in a mini-PowerPoint format, max 3 mins.
  • Each presenter will have their own Zoom link.
  • Over a 30 min time slot, a poster presenter will present to anyone who enters their Zoom meeting and will answer questions.
  • As anyone new enters their Zoom meeting they will deliver their presentation again etc, which is essentially what happens when presenting a poster live.
