Guidelines for Oral Presentations & E-poster

Information for Oral Presentation authors and Invited Speakers

Virtual Oral Presentations - Invited Speakers and Oral Communications Authors will receive a link from the organizing secretariat, to reserve a time slot to pre-record a back-up of their speech and test their connection.
Speakers and authors will then be requested to broadcast live during the live session in which their presentation has been included. Kindly, take note that within the month of September, speakers and authors will be required to attend technical trials with the Technical Service in preparation of their live presentation.
In case your time zone will not allow you to take the presentation in live mode, please inform us so that we can arrange to record your presentation in advance. More detailed instructions will be sent in due time.

TECHNICAL TEST

A “general trial” of your presentation is foreseen, where you will be connected remotely one-to-one with a dedicated technician. This is why it is important that the test is carried out from the same location and using the same equipment you plan to use during the live event.

The purpose of the test is:
  • Verify internet connection and equipment
  • Get familiar with the web platform
  • Test your presentation

PREPARING YOUR INTERVENTION

Your presentation can be realized in the formats listed below:

  • pptx (Microsoft Office PowerPoint);
  • key (Keynote for Mac)

Each pptx or key presentation, with embedded videos, should be produced in 16:9 landscape format (horizontal) only.

PRESENTATION DURING LIVE EVENT

Intervention shall be led from the same location, using the same equipment during the technical test.

Please remember that each Speaker should be connected 60 minutes before the beginning of the Session.
Further details and information about your intervention during the Live Event will be communicated by the technicians during the test.

In case it is necessary to pre-record and send a presentation please note.

It is important that the PowerPoint or keynote presentation has a space for positioning the camera so as to avoid covering important concepts present at that particular point of the slides. This space should be left on the top of the slide on the righthand side.
Please avoid background noise while recording and use a background as much neutral as possible.
