Please bring your presentation files on a USB memory stick and use the computer available in the rooms. If you need to use your own laptop, please allow for the additional set up time as part of your presentation slot.

Software installed on the computer is for standard office set up.  Please ensure your presentation will work in this format, and on a PC. Slide format should be standard ratio 4:3.

Presenters should meet in the scheduled room 20 minutes before the start of the session to upload their presentation.

Presentation slots are generally 12 minutes per presenter plus 5 minutes for questions.

Session chairs have been asked to keep individual presentations to time to ensure the sessions overall also run to time.

Poster presentations - a template for the preparation of your poster has been sent to you.  You can put up your poster on the morning of Tuesday 11 September and it should remain until the close of the conference on Wednesday 12 September. A short session has been included on Tuesday 11 September when you will have the opportunity to give a short overview of your work.

Information for Session Chairs

Please be present in the room 20 minutes before the session starts to welcome the presenters in your session. Please check that all presenters are there and that their presentations have been uploaded and tested on the computer.
