All presenters are required to register and pay 1 June 2016.
Please refer to the program schedule to view the day and time of your presentation. It is anticipated the Program schedule will be available late April. Unless you have been advised otherwise, oral presentations are 25 minutes including 5 minutes for questions/discussion.
Preparing your presentation
All session rooms will be equipped with a laptop (Windows 7), lectern, microphone, lapel microphone and data projector supplied by the Adelaide Convention Centre (ACC). It is recommended that you use the ACC's laptops and play back devices.
If you must use your own laptop, advise this office before Monday 1 August 2016. Ensure you bring the appropriate adaptors and please note that the venue will not provide any technical support for equipment it does not own and maintain.
The preferred method of presentation is via PowerPoint. PowerPoint presentations should be prepared in wide screen 16:9 (not standard 4:3 format). You must bring your presentation to the conference on USB Flash drive for it to be loaded onto the Conference system by an audiovisual technician in the speakers’ preparation room. Please have your presentation saved under your last/family name.
Overhead and 35mm slide projectors will not be provided.
Presenters are requested to report to the registration desk on arrival. You will be directed to the speaker preparation area where your presentation will be uploaded and verified. If you have a MAC or special presentation requirements, please see the technical operators in the speaker preparation area for assistance. Meet with your session chairperson in the session room 10-15 minutes prior to the commencement of the session. If at all possible, please check your presentation material in the speaker preparation area well before your presentation time to avoid any problems when you present.
In preparing your presentation, emphasis should be given to the visual impact and format to capture your presentation. In your presentation please do not attempt to detail your entire research project or project history. Present only enough data to support conclusions or to explain the points you wish to make. Diagrams and photographs are a much more effective way of presenting data than text. And make sure that the font that you choose is clear when projected and large enough that everyone can read your slides (including the axes of your plots and other captions). The aim of presentations is to put across a simple message in an eye-catching manner. The following link may be useful for new presenters.
