Please bring your presentation files on a USB memory stick and use the computer available in the rooms. If you need to use your own laptop, please allow for the additional set up time as part of your presentation slot.

Software installed on the computer is for standard office set up.  Please ensure your presentation will work in this format, and on a PC. Slide format should be widescreen.

Presenters should meet in the scheduled room 20 minutes before the start of the session to upload their presentation. 

Presentation slots are generally 20 minutes per presenter, to include time for questions.

Session chairs have been asked to keep individual presentations to time to ensure the sessions overall also run to time.

Information for Session Chairs

Please be present in the room 20 minutes before the session starts to welcome the presenters in your session. Please check that all presenters are there and that their presentations have been uploaded and tested on the computer.

Please keep to the time slots as scheduled in the programme. The parallel sessions mainly consist of four papers and the time available for each paper is 20 minutes (15 minutes for presentation; 5 minutes for discussion).

At the start of the session, remind attendees of the safety information provided in each room.  Please introduce each speaker and manage the Q&A after each presentation. At the end of the session, please thank all the presenters and contributors, and remind participants of the next activity in the programme (refreshments, lunch etc).
