Presenter Guidelines


Presenters, please be aware, and remain within, your allocated presentation length. The allocated time for Oral Presentations is 20 minutes including 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions.

Preliminary Technical  Programme is available on the Programme page

To allow us to prepare for a smooth event, please email your slides (PPT format) by 3 December 2018 to  There is no conference presentation slides template – you may use your University / organization’s templates. The slides are to be in 4:3 aspect ratio size.

As a back-up, slides should be brought to the conference on a USB and be Windows PC compatible. Your presentation should be loaded onto the room computer and tested prior to your session (during the registration time, coffee breaks or lunch time) so that they run smoothly without any delays. Student volunteers will be available in each session room to assist with loading your presentations onto the computer. All session rooms will be equipped with an LCD/projector screen and a computer with Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe PDF reader.

Please arrive at the session room at least 10 minutes before the start of the session and introduce yourself to the Session Chair and room assistant.

You are required to handover a clearly written short biography to Session Chairs to introduce you to the audience. In your biography please limit content to academic titles and graduation dates, institute(s), job functions and research interests. The purpose of the biography is to allow the Session Chair to briefly introduce you to the audience and should be less than 100 words.


There will be 2 Poster Sessions, held during lunch , 1.00pm – 2.00pm on 11-12 December.  Please refer to the programme page (LINK) to check the date of your poster presentation.

Poster presentation is intended for rapid communication. As such, keep the text to minimum, emphasize on images and graphs. Determine the key points of your paper and design the poster to reflect them. A visual flow based design (for example, use of arrows or block diagrams) is recommended.

Each poster will be displayed on Poster Panels.  We recommend to use an A1 paper in the portrait orientation to prepare your poster.  A template is provided (download LINK).  The poster should be clearly visible 1.5m away from the panel and you must select the font sizes accordingly. We recommend you to prepare for a 5 minute description of your work, which can be repeatedly used for various attendees.

Your presentation space will be identified by a card with your paper ID number on it. Please display your poster in the morning prior to your Session and standby at your respective space by 1.00pm. All posters must be removed by 5.30pm on the same Poster Session day.
