Instructions for Oral Presentations


Time and Schedule

  • The detailed program showing the time and place of your session will be published on the conference website very soon.
  • The slot for regular oral presentations is 20 minutes which must include time for Q&A and speaker introduction by the chair. Your speaking time should in no case exceed 15 minutes!


Formatting Instructions

  • Presentations in .ppt format, .pptx format and .pdf format will be accepted. If your presentation was created with an Apple device, please test the file on a Windows PC to make sure that it is correctly displayed.
  • Avoid any external links in your presentation. The presentation computers do not have an internet connection.
  • Non-standard fonts should be embedded.
  • All images and graphs must be embedded without links.
  • Past experience shows that video clips often cause technical difficulties. If you intend to use video clips, please double-check their validity when handing in your presentation.



Media Upload

  • Use the link in the email to activate your account in the Fourwaves
  • Please be sure to upload your presentation ppt to Fourwaves until Oct. 7th, 12 pm midnight, Sydney time (UTC +11)
  • After this deadline no changes on the presentation can be taken into account.
  • Please bring a memory stick with the presentation to the conference as a backup solution.
  • Please upload a very short bio (2-3 sentences) to Fourwaves, so the session chairs may properly introduce you.
  • You will not be able to display your presentation directly from your laptop computer or memory stick. All presentations must be uploaded to the conference system in advance.
  • Please meet your session chairs inside the conference room at least 10 minutes prior to the beginning of your oral session and familiarize yourself with the technical equipment.




Important: Please make sure that your presentation and memory stick do not contain computer viruses of any kind. If you hand in an infected memory stick, you will be asked to return with a virus-free memory stick.
