Guidelines for Presenters

Presentations must be given by the designated presenter during the conference. You may view the designated presenter of your abstract(s) by navigating to the My Conference page on the conference site here:

Presenters must be registered for the conference prior to 22 March. Otherwise, their presentation may be removed from the oral program. This measure is necessary to prevent gaps in the program. Any change of presenter must be notified to Please provide us with the abstract ID number and the name of the substitute presenter. 

Participants may present a maximum of one oral presentation and one poster presentation. 

All parallel sessions will be live-streamed and recorded for viewing on Whova at participants' convenience. 


Parallel Session Presentations

  • Each presenter will be assigned to one of the sessions during the conference.
  • Session assignments can be found by navigating to the "My Conference" section of this website and clicking on the abstract link.
  • During the sessions each presenter will give a 10-minute presentation, followed by a 5-minute Q&A. Stay within the allocated time. This typically means you should not have more than 10 slides. Session chairs will give you a signal after 9 minutes, at which time you should start wrapping up your presentation. Give short answers to questions.
  • There are a number of online sources on “good practices” for oral presentations. For example, there are some excellent tips and tricks you can find in this short videolong video, or this article.

Uploading slides

  • Prepare your slides as a PowerPoint or PDF file. If possible, prepare your presentation with an aspect ratio of 16:9.
  • You must name your file with the following convention "Session_Abstract ID_Name." For example, 12MS03_123_JaneDoe.pdf.
  • Files should be emailed or uploaded no later than Friday, 10 May in order to allow technicians time to transfer them to corresponding computers. 
  • Email the files to or to this address via WeTransfer. Alternatively, you may upload your presentation to the InterPore cloud.
  • If you have any difficulties uploading your files, please contact and provide a clear description of the problem. 
  • If under exceptional circumstances you cannot upload your presentation file, you must deliver it to the Speaker-Ready room at least 2 hours prior to your presentation. Running presentations from files on a USB or personal device at presentation time will not be possible.
