Oral & Poster Presentation Guidelines

Oral presentation

  • Slides format
    MS Powerpoint (Ver. 2003 – latest)
    Recommended format is the MS Powerpoint. Speakers are advised to bring MS powerpoint slides with USB key rather than MAC Laptop because of its short and limited time: Setting up with MAC laptop may take 2-3 minutes.

    Presentations should be on a using memory stick as removable storage media. It is recommended that presentations be reviewed in the preview room sufficiently prior to the oral presentation session so that software version and compatibility issues can be determined at that time. Note that including audio or video content in your PowerPoint presentation involves using links to external media files which may not work after the files are moved to the presentation computer. Sometimes these links need to be updated after you move the files due to differences in the way that differently configured computers identify the drive or USB device where the external files are located. Any PowerPoint presentation which includes links to external audio or video files needs to be tested in advance on the computer used for the presentation

  • Preview Room
    Authors must check into the speaker’s preview room at least 1 hour before their presentation to polish up / upload their presentation slides.
