Guidance for oral and poster presenters

GUIDANCE FOR CHAIRS, ORAL AND POSTER PRESENTATIONS AT WAHVM 2014

Oral Presentations

Projectors for powerpoint presentations will be available in all rooms. If you have other A/V requirements (e.g. playing video) please get in touch in advance to let us know. Please come to your timetable room 10 minutes ahead of the session to meet with the chair, upload files and prepare your presentation. Speakers should allow 15 minutes to present their talk, plus 5 minutes for questions. We ask that you keep strictly to time: our session chairs will be using amber/red flashcards to let you know when to stop!

Session Chairs

As above, please come to your timetabled room 10 minutes ahead of the session in order to meet with the speakers. Please allow 15 minutes for each talk and 5 minutes for questions, keeping prompt timings, and using the amber/red flashcards in the room to warn the speaker of how long they have left (amber=5mins left; red=stop). If you need any technical help, please ask at the registration desk.

Poster Presentations

Poster sessions will be held over lunchtime on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th September, so please grab yourself some lunch and then come to your poster so you can talk with other delegates about it!

Poster size – A0 (1.189m x 0.841m). It can be either landscape or portrait: if you can please let us know which you have used , so that the appropriate number of mounting boards can be used.

The poster must contain title, authors, affiliations, abstract (CRA), introduction, objectives, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusions and references and conflicts of interest where these exist. The figures, tables, etc. must be presented within the dimensions given, and the poster must be written in English.
