Instructions to presenters at IRC2018

To all presenters (full oral, flash talk, poster): the assignment of the session room, day, and time slot will be communicated on the last week of August. Your abstracts will be available electronically to all participants. Details of ‘your’ session (speaker names, titles, timing) will also be available in the electronic program, and will be visible on overhead monitors at the venue.

Oral presentations

Oral presentation slots are 20 minutes, presenters are advised to prepare for a 15 minute presentation and allow for 5 minutes discussion time. The preferred file format is Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx). We encourage all authors to have a copy of their presentation slides ready in a portable flash-drive and a copy saved in their preferred cloud drive. Please be present in the assigned conference room 15 minutes before the start of the session to meet with the session moderator for tech check and uploading of presentation slides onto the conference laptop.

If you intend to use your own laptop for the presentation, please take note that our projectors use the standard HDMI interface. Do bring your own adapter if your laptop does not support the standard HDMI interface.

Flash talks

In each session, there will be a group of five (5) flash talks of 5 minutes each, after which a general discussion is moderated with all five flash talk presenters for 25 minutes. After the first group, a second group will follow. To keep within time limits and promote discussion, the 5-minute time limit for each flash talk will be strictly adhered to by the moderator.

Flash talks are strictly limited to two slides: the first containing the tile and authors, and the second containing the key messages and any supporting information (tables, data, graphics, pictures). Please be present in the assigned conference room 15 minutes before the start of the session to meet with the session moderator for tech check and uploading of presentation slides onto the conference laptop.
