Presentation Time

To ensure the program runs to time, we ask that you please keep your presentation to no more than 15 minutes (12 min presentation + 3 min Q&A).  Please upload your presentation or bring it on USB stick. All speakers are requested to upload their presentation and check their audio-visual presentations with the technician at the Speakers’ Preparation Desk the day before their presentation.

 

Presentation Upload Instructions:

  1. Save your PowerPoint presentation with the following filename convention:  [last name]_[ first name]_[ session number].ppt. For example, Smith_John_Session_4.2.ppt
  2. Access the following dropbox link
  3. Select ‘Choose from computer’, locate the saved file on your computer and press ‘choose’, to complete the upload process
  4. After you upload your presentation you will receive a confirmation email. You will not be able to obtain further access to edit or remove your presentation. If you need to upload a new version, please use previous name and add v2, v3 etc. For example Smith_John_Session_4.2_v2.ppt.

 

Guidelines for Lightning Lectures

Lightning lectures act as a short introduction or summary of your research and are accompanied by a poster within one of the poster sessions. See posters, see guidelines below.

 

Presentation time:

To ensure the program runs to time, we ask that you please keep your lightning lecture to no more than 2 minutes. It should consist of a maximum of 2 Powerpoint slides.

Guidelines for Poster Presentations

 

Poster Sessions

There will be two poster sessions with each session spanning two days of the conference.

Presenters will be assigned a poster number that corresponds to a poster board and, on the first morning of their poster session, will display their poster on that board.

Session 1 posters will be displayed from Monday 10 February 9:00am until Tuesday 11 February 5:00pm. Presenters should stand by their posters on Monday and Tuesday from 3:00pm until 4:00pm.

Session 2 posters will be displayed from Wednesday 12 February 9:00am until Thursday 13 February 5:00pm.  Presenters should stand by their posters on Wednesday and Thursday from 3:00pm until 4:00pm.

 

Poster Format

Posters should be no larger than PORTRAIT A0 size (841mm x 1189mm). The poster message should be clear and understandable without oral explanation. Your poster should include the title, author’s names and the organisation(s) where the work was completed. Text throughout the poster should be kept brief and descriptions of methods should be clear and concise.

Posters can be affixed to the poster boards with velcro.  Velcro dots will be available from the AMOS reception desk.
