Guidelines for Presentations
Oral presentation preparation
- Official language: English
- Preferred Presentation File Format: Microsoft Office PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx)
- Use standard fonts such as Times New Roman, Arial, Calibri, or Verdana which will be installed on the session room computers. If you use any unique fonts, your presentation may not operate correctly on the session room computer.
- Verification of proper performance of the presentation at the Registration desk is highly recommended, particularly if video or animation is included in the presentation.
Presentation material submission
- Please bring your presentation files on a USB drive one day before your presentation to avoid congestion. Presenters of the first day should hand over their files to the technician as soon as they arrive.
- Presenters will not be allowed to use personal laptops to avoid problems with computer-projector compatibility.
Allocated presentation time
- Please check your presentation schedule and session on the website.
- It is important that you arrive at your session room at least 10 minutes before the start of session to make sure that everything is prepared for your presentation.
According to the presentation type, the allocated presentation time is different. Please refer to the time standard below;
- Keynote Lecture: 40 min. (35 min + 5 min Q&A)
- Oral Presentation times 20 min. (15 min for presentation + 5 min for Q & A) talks
Please find the details of your session on the website, and ensure that the length of your presentation matches with the time available to you as indicated above. Chairs have been asked to be strict in all of our sessions about time compliance to avoid over-run and ensure the possibility of shuffling between sessions.
- Presenters will be able to control their presentation slides by using a keyboard, mouse or wireless remote pointer at the podium.
- Our staff will be present in each session room to assist with any technical issues.
General poster presenter guideline
Presenting a poster is a great way to visually share your research work and expertise with a wide range of delegates who are interested to learn about what you have done and also give you positive feedback.

All posters will be displayed in the Coffee break area, near the exhibition area.
