Information for presenters
The lecture theatre is equipped with the following audio-visual equipment:
To optimise compatibility, particularly for the inclusion of multimedia components, speakers should include the original files so that it can be re-embedded if necessary. Direct connection of personal laptops (with set up in the break prior to the corresponding session) is an acceptable, but not preferred alternative. Mac users should ensure that they bring the correct connection cable (VGA) with them.
The lecture theatre is reasonably large, so speakers should use a minimum 16-point font size in PowerPoint slides to ensure legibility. Presenters are asked to prepare their talks to match the allocated times which will be rigidly enforced.
Posters will be on display in the foyer area of the East Midlands Conference Centre with dedicated poster session/s as scheduled in the programme.
Please note that during poster sessions, authors should stand close to their boards to answer questions and facilitate discussions on their work. If you are presenting a poster please ensure that you display your poster on the board number that matches your poster number in the programme.
Posters must be no larger than A0 in size (118.9 x 84.1cm / 46.8 x 33.1 inches), in a portrait format. If your poster does not fit within these dimensions, we cannot guarantee it will be displayed. Fixing material will be supplied.
Posters can be mounted during registration from 12:00 on Monday 25 July 2016. There will be two designated poster sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday evening, although posters can also be viewed during refreshments and lunch throughout the conference. All posters must be removed by 11:00 on Friday 29 July.
