Oral Presenters

Talk Deadline: 01 May 2017

We have a number of oral opportunities available at this meeting. To be considered for a talk, please register for the conference and you will be able to submit your abstract online and monitor the status of your abstract through your Fusion account. Please use the abstract template provided and ensure your abstract is no longer than one page in length. Any abstracts exceeding this size may be cut short during print.

Please take note of the oral submission deadline: 1st May 2017.

Please check the conference programme carefully to note your presentation time (inclusive of Q&A) should you be accepted for an oral presentation. We recommend you check our website regularly as the conference approaches. Regular programme updates will be released under the ‘Programme’ tab on the conference page.

Your Presentation on the Day

If you have prepared some slides to accompanying your talk please ensure you bring these with you on a USB or portable file saving device.

For those presenting on the first day, please email your slides to us so we can have everything prepared and ready for the first session. Please email your slides to: admin@fusion-conferences.com

On the day of your presentation please make yourself known to the AV team who will be available in the conference room. If you have any animations or videos we do advise to run through the presentation with the AV tech to make sure everything is compatible. We also advise that all speakers make themselves known to the AV tech in the conference room immediately before your session beings. The AV tech will apply your microphone and provide a laser pointer should you have an accompanying presentation. We prefer speakers to use our master laptop to run presentations from, however, if you prefer to use your own laptop, please notify us in advance.

It is important that all speakers adhere to their presentation time and respect their fellow presenters. A visual traffic light aide will be available to warn presenters and the audience as your time decreases.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to approach our AV tech or a member of the Fusion team.

Helpful Tips for Presentation Slides

Aspect Ratio: On Screen Show (16:9) and in Landscape Orientation; in any other format (i.e 4:3) your presentation will not fill our screens.
Font Size: Minimum font size used should be 24pt. 
File Type: Please safe your presentation in PPT or PPTS format. 
Video Clips: Please save these separately and do not build them into the PowerPoint. Videos will be played via the AV control desk using the master laptop.
