Audio Visual

Each session room will have a PC Laptop equipped with Microsoft PowerPoint. There will only be conference Wi-Fi available and is not suitable for streaming content. Please do not build presentations on Prezi or other services that require a dedicated internet connection. 

Presentation Files

Presentations should be in a PC PowerPoint format and in 16:9 slide ratio. Please ensure your settings are correct. If a MAC is being used, please ring the appropriate dongles and prepare to arrive early and notify a technician so assistance will be made available prior to the session. 

All speakers are expected to bring presentations on a USB flash drive to the session room on presentation day. Speakers may drop off presentations in the appropriate folder on the desktop of the PC in session rooms anytime in advance of the presentation. Please do not run presentations off a USB flash drive. Drag and drop it onto the desktop to avoid lags and presentation issues. To test or edit presentations prior to sessions, please visit the speaker prep room. 

Presentation Timing

Please be cognisant of the time you have been allotted during your session. Each oral presentation has been given 45 minutes inclusive of any Q&A. The concurrent oral sessions and presentations are back to back so please be respectful of the other presenters and stay on time. 


Preparation of Posters Two posters will be presented per side of a large poster board. The maximum dimensions for your poster are 45" wide and 72" tall (see diagram below). Your poster does not have to be the maximum size but must stay within the dimensions outlined and should be produced large enough to be read from a comfortable distance (at least 1.5m/~5ft away).
