Oral and Poster Presentation Guidelines


Oral (short slide) Presentation guidelines

Oral presentations (except plenary and keynote) have a 15 minutes slot – please prepare a PowerPoint presentation that lasts for up to 10-12 minutes MAXIMUM to allow 3-5 minutes for discussion after your talk.  This equates to roughly 10 slides excluding your title and acknowledgement slides.
Please make sure you finish your talk with in 12 minutes - it is a good idea to rehearse it beforehand to check your timings- to allow plenty of time for discussion from the audience.  We will give you a warning at 11 minutes so you have a minute to wrap up.  We will be very strict about timing and will stop you when your 12 minutes is up even if you have not finished. If you need any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Power Point presentation of all speakers must be delivered to the speaker-ready room ICOPHAI office at the Ritz Carlton the day before the presentation. The office will be open to collect presentations as of Monday November 6th. Specialized technicians will be available to help you download and run-through.Final program with the time and date of presentations will be posted on the congress web site by October 30.
