Oral Presentations

Oral presentations are normally 12 minutes with 3 minutes for questions. Data projectors are the standard audiovisual equipment in each oral session. All presenters must upload their PowerPoint presentations online or the day before their presentation in the Speaker Ready Room at the meeting to have them pre-loaded on the session computers. Individual presentations then begin with the click of a mouse.
