Guidelines for oral and poster presentations

Conference registration

The registration desk will be open from 8:45am on Tuesday 20 June in the Lord Ashcroft Building Broad Street Foyer at the ARU Campus on East Road. Find out more about travelling to our Cambridge campus.

A PDF of the conference handbook will be available to download at registration, including all oral and poster presentation abstracts.

Oral presentations

Oral presentations have been scheduled for 20-minute slots (15-minute presentation + five minutes for follow-up questions). All oral presentations will take place in lecture theatre LAB003 in the Lord Ashcroft Building.

To avoid delay, our preference is for all speakers to load their presentation on the PC in the lecture theatre during the break preceding their session (or from 9am for the first session of the day). If you would prefer to use your own laptop, please check it will connect correctly to the projector before your session commences.

IT support will be available throughout the meeting to assist with any technical issues.

Poster presentations

Poster presentations should be formatted to fit within a portrait working area of 90 cm (wide) x 120 cm (high). We recommend printing A1 size in portrait orientation (594 x 841 mm), and definitely no larger than A0 size (841 x 1189 mm). 

The poster session will take place in the Science Centre Atrium from 3.20-4.20pm on 20 June. Your poster board number will be allocated when you register at the conference.

The boards will be available to attach posters from 1pm on 20 June (materials to attach posters will be provided). All posters must be removed after the poster session, no later than 6:30pm on 20 June.
