The presentation slides may be written in your own house style/format as used by your organisation in 16 : 10 screen ratio and there is no set deadline for submission. Please note that the presentation must not be considered a 'sales pitch'.
Presenting on the day
Please meet with the Session Chairman immediately prior to your session eg registration, coffee, lunch break. This meeting ensures that all speakers are given the same amount of time to check their visual aids and Chairmen can confirm any technical queries. A technician will be available to assist with any queries on the day.
The length of programme slot is 30 minutes. This includes getting on and off the platform as well as the Chairman's introduction; actual presentation length should be around 25 - 28 minutes. It should be noted that the Chairman may intervene and ask the authors to finish their presentation if it overruns significantly.
The presentation will be part of a session normally consisting of 3 - 5 papers. Questions will not be taken between papers, but at the end of the session one author from each paper will be invited back onto the stage for an open panel question session of approximately 15 minutes.
Authors are invited to bring a final copy on the day of presentation or alternatively you may send a copy to: firstname.lastname@example.org in advance for pre-loading. Videos may be included as part of your presentation if the files are provided on a disk or memory stick; embedded videos must be checked by the AV Technician prior to the live presentation.
Please note that due to internet access limitations at the venue, it may not be possible to retrieve your presentation from online transfer sites such as 'Dropbox' or to carry out live web streaming of videos on the day.
The IMarEST may video/audio record your presentation for the IMarEST website, should you wish to opt out at any time, please contact: email@example.com as soon as possible.
