Presentation Instructions and Templates


The following information will assist you in preparing your presentation.

A. Regular Session Oral Presentation (Slides):

Presentation materials must be provided ahead of time so they will be ready at the beginning of the session.

Do not plan to load your presentation at the beginning of the session or just before you are scheduled to speak. Unless you have a special need and have made arrangements beforehand, you must use the computer provided.

Slides must be in electronic form; PowerPoint or PDF files are acceptable. Transparent slides, either viewgraphs or 35mm, are no longer used. Technical paper presentation materials are not published or archived, so they need not be Xplore compliant.

Each presentation has 15 minutes of duration, which means 12 minutes of presentation and 3 minutes for questions and answers.

B. Poster Sessions

Posters do not follow a specific template, but they should have a maximum dimension of 750mm (width) x 1200mm (height) or 29.5inches x 47.2inches.

The poster supports will be lined-up as in the next figure:
