Please note that you are not required to provide a full paper of your accepted abstract.
Oral Presentations – Overview
The optimal format for oral presentations in PowerPoint is 16:9 (widescreen). Oral presenters must check in presentations with the Speaker Preview Room 2-4 hours prior to their session start time, preferably during a refreshment break (if possible).
The majority of oral presentations each will be 10 minutes long (8 minutes presentation and 2 minutes for questions) unless otherwise advised. Please rehearse your presentation to make sure you speak for no more than 8 minutes. This will ensure there are at least two minutes for discussion. As this is an essential part of the session, the chair will ask you to stop if you overrun.
Poster Presentations – Overview
Posters must be A0 in size. A0 posters MUST be produced in portrait style. Velcro will be provided at each board to hang your posters.
We recommend printing your poster on paper and not on fabric.

All poster boards will be numbered with your unique poster number. Poster numbers are made up of session number e.g. 1.10 and poster number P1, 2, 3 etc. Please note that only posters numbered P1 to P12 will be presented in a chaired session. All posters numbered from P13 onwards will be displayed posters.
All posters will be hung for the full duration of the congress.
Chaired poster presentations each will take place by the posters in the times included within the guidelines document and will be 5 minutes long (3 minutes presentation and 2 minutes for questions). Chaired poster authors do NOT require a Power Point presentation for this session. Authors will be standing by their posters and present this to their audience.
Please rehearse your presentation to make sure you speak for no more than 3 minutes. This will ensure there are at least two minutes for discussion. As this is an essential part of the session, the chair will ask you to stop if you overrun.
