Information for presenters

Oral presentations
Oral presentations should be 12 minutes long, with up to 3 minutes for questions. To ensure that the programme runs to time, these will be strictly enforced! Presentations should be in PowerPoint or PDF format, and will be run from a Windows PC with PowerPoint 2010. All presentations should be uploaded to the auditorium computer prior to the session in which the talk will take place, and there will be plenty of time and support available for this; I’m afraid you will not be able to run your talk from your own laptop, so please bring it on a memory stick. If you have video files, the best formats are AVI, WMV and MP4 – we cannot guarantee that other formats will work, and strongly recommend that you allow time to ensure that your videos work as expected.

Poster presentations
Posters should be in portrait orientation, with a maximum size of A0. Adhesive velcro will be provided on the day.
