Preparing your presentation

Please arrive to your session room at least 5-minutes in advance to ensure your presentation is accessible on the computer within the room. You can find the details of your session on the WSC scientific programme here.

All presentations must be made and held in English and we recommend between 12-15 slides for your presentation.

CPS Presenters should aim for approximately 12-minutes including Q&A and must not exceed a total of 15-minutes.

IPS Presenters should discuss their presentation timings with the chair and organiser of the IPS session.

The conference space has AV equipment supporting Microsoft PowerPoint, all scientific rooms are equipped with a lectern, laptop, screen, projector and clicker. Please let us know if your presentation is in Apple Keynote, PDF or another presentation software so we can ensure your requirements are in place.

Roaming technicians will be available for I.T support for the duration of the congress.

We recommend using the following specifications to obtain the best results with the AV equipment:

  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Content should be provided in the format of 16:9 (widescreen) which fits our screens to the best ratio. If your content is in another format please specify this.
  • The screen has a resolution of HD (1920 x 1080).
  • Videos can be MP4/MOV/AVI suggested codec H.264.

Please provide a copy of your videos separate to any presentations even if they are embedded in your presentation as a backup.

  • Suggested fonts: Please only use fonts that are available in Windows otherwise they may not be supported by conference computers if you have a unique font please provide the font file in advance.
  • Screen connectivity will be available in all SIPS, IPS and CPS rooms.
