Information for presenters

Oral presenters

Presenters are asked to prepare their talks to match the allocated times which will be rigidly enforced.

Presenters should allow time for both a formal presentations and questions within the time allocated in the programme. As a guide, contributed oral presenters should allow 12 minutes for the formal presentation and up to 3 minutes for questions.

The lecture theatre is equipped with the following audio-visual equipment:

  • Data projectors and screens
  • Desktop computer (Windows)
  • Lectern and microphone (Chichester Theatre only)

Presentation upload

For the benefit of being able to upload your presentations, we have provided indico site:

In timetable, you should be able to login to indico and edit your contribution: click on your contribution, 'View details' then 'edit files' and 'add materials to the session'.

We realise some people are not registered with indico, but we would encourage them to do so at

If you have any problems, contact the local organisers for help or your talk can be provided by on USB stick.

Direct connection of personal laptops (with set up in the break prior to the corresponding session) is an acceptable, but not preferred, alternative.

The lecture theatres are reasonably large, so speakers should use a minimum 16-point font size in PowerPoint slides to ensure legibility.

Poster presenters

Posters will be on display throughout the conference in Dine Central, Level 1, Bramber House.

There will be two dedicated poster sessions:

  • 15:30-16:45 on Monday 21 March
  • 15:15 – 16:30 on Tuesday 22 March.

All posters will be presented in both sessions. If you are presenting a poster please ensure that you display your poster on the board number that matches your poster number in the programme.

Posters can be mounted from 12:35 on Monday 21 March and must be removed by 16:30 on Tuesday 22 March. Fixing material will be supplied.

Posters must be no larger than A0 in size (118.9 x 84.1cm / 46.8 x 33.1 inches), in a portrait format. If your poster does not fit within these dimensions, we cannot guarantee it will be displayed.

Posters must be prepared in advance of the conference as it may not be possible to print posters on-site.
