Information for Presenters

Printing Papers

Conference delegates will receive a hard copy of the contributed conference full paper and a CD-Rom in the Conference Proceedings Book. Delegates who wish to access a hard copy of the conference papers during the conference should print copies from the CD-Rom prior traveling.

Presentation Time

Presentations will consist of 5 papers per session. Each session is of 80 minutes duration. Each presenter will be allocated 15 minutes for their presentation, including reviewer and questions. It is very important that presenters do not take more time than is allowed. To help the presenter keep track of time, the Chair of the Session will show a green-colored card to indicate that 3 minutes are remaining, and a red-colored card to indicate that your presentation should end immediately.

Loading Your Presentation

Please save your presentation on CD/DVD or a USB memory stick. Presenters should arrive at their allocated room 15 minutes before the start of the session to load their presentation. Student Volunteers will be available to assist conference presenters in this process.

When presenting

  • Show interest in your own presentation!
  • Make sure the audience can see you – stand where there is light, and turn towards your audience when speaking.
  • Allow time for the audience to review your slides if they are complicated – do not rush through models or large tables. Explain arrows in complicated models.
  • Respect the time limit. You will have about 12 minutes to present, and then 3 minutes for reviewer and questions. If questions remain after the time is up, we suggest that you discuss these after the session. Do not intrude on others’ time slots.
  • Respect the Chair of the session. They are instructed to ensure that the time is kept and will hold presenters to this. If you take more time than allowed, the Chair is instructed to ask you to conclude in order for other presenters to have enough time.
  • Helpful Hints for first-time presenters
  • When preparing your presentation:
  • Make sure each slide has a purpose in your presentation – consider how it helps the audience understand your message.
  • Prepare slides that support your oral presentation – do not read the entire presentation from your slides. The main message should come from the presenter, not the slides.
  • Prepare an adequate number of slides – too many may make you appear rushed, and too few may make the presentation less clear.
  • A summary slide may be useful at a certain stage in the presentation.
  • If you plan to show a particular slide more than once, make copies of it so you do not have to scroll through your slides to find it.
