Oral presentation guidelines

Each presentation room is equipped with a Microsoft Windows PC (running Windows 7), and the presentations will be displayed using Microsoft PowerPoint 2010. Presentations should be built to display at a 4:3 aspect ratio. For delegates who have created their presentations on a different system (e.g. Apple), we request that you make sure that your presentation displays correctly on a Windows 7 machine. To verify that their presentation works correctly, a speaker ready room (A2101) is located on the second floor of the College.

Delegates scheduled to give an oral presentation are required to hand over their PowerPoint file in the room where their presentation is scheduled, and on the day they are to speak, a minimum of 30 minutes before the session is to begin. There will be an assistant in each presentation room available to help with this task. It is the responsibility of each presenter to bring their talk on either a memory key (preferred) or CD/DVD, and to make sure that their talk is uploaded in good time before the start of the session. To ensure the sessions run smoothly and on time, presentations will not be uploaded during sessions, nor will it be possible for personal laptops to be attached to the projecting equipment.

Twenty minutes have been allotted to each presentation, comprising 15 minutes for the presentation and five minutes for questions. Please try to stay within these limits.

Poster presentation guidelines

Poster boards are 8’ x 4’ in size, landscape orientation. Please make sure your poster size and orientation is no larger than these dimensions. Poster hanging material will be provided (pins or Velcro).

Poster sessions will be held at the Yukon College, in the Gymnasium. A floor plan will be available on site.
