Guidelines for Oral Presentations
Presentation should last 20 minutes including questions. When planning your presentation, it is important to understand what can be achieved in the allocated time. Remember that you cannot communicate the same amount of information in a presentation that you can in a written report or essay
- Only PowerPoint (or PDF files) are acceptable for the presentation;
- Use landscape format (horizontal position);
- Instructions for slides – we suggest:
- Please remember that lettering and numbering must be readable from the back of the room, for text and figures/tables (for example, size ≥ 18 in Arial font);
- Do not include too much text;
- Your presentation should include slides for:
- - the title,
- - the question that is addressed,
- - the approach used to address the question,
- - the methods used (not too much details unless it is the purpose of the talk, if attendees wish details, let them ask you in the Q & A period),
- - the results obtained,
- - the conclusions of the work.
Please ensure that the take-home message of the presentation is clear;
- Select figures instead tables as they better communicate the data.
- Avoid too many acronyms;
- Use English, including units, legends, notes;
- Make sure that all graphs, especially axes, clearly show their legend and unit.
- Upload your presentation before the beginning of the session, in the session room, with the help of the chair of the session.
- Your presentation may be made accessible to the public for a period of 6 months after the congress, on the congress website.
- Please be in the session room at least 15 minutes before the beginning of the session, and introduce yourself to the chair. Provide him/her some information for your introduction (employee, geographical location, research area, etc.).
- If you cannot make your presentation at Nday for some reason, please notify organizers (Valda Araminienė email@example.com) and arrange for a substitute to present your work as soon as possible.
