Oral Presentations

Presentation format

You will be given a total of 15 minutes for your presentation: 12 minutes for the talk + 3 minutes for audience Q&A and transitioning to the next speaker.

Each room has a dedicated internet-connected Windows laptop for presenting; please do not use your own.

● Please ensure your content are fully viewable in a 16:9 aspect ratio

● Upload a copy of your file(s) to a USB flash drive for transfer (only USB A and USB C supported)

You will be provided with a wireless lavalier (clip-on) mic. Please use the microphone, as it serves several purposes: 1) feeding audio directly into earbuds worn by hearing-impaired delegates, and 2) improving clarity while speaking through a mask, 3) in the Hybrid session it feeds your audio to the streaming session

Preparation and uploading

Please upload your files to laptops in your presentation rooms in advance of your session. To ensure that your presentation file displays & runs properly, you can test it on a demo laptop and screen in the Salon 5 (see map of second floor). Please upload your talk in the evening before the next day’s sessions if possible, or in the morning or lunch before the start of your session.

SCAS will have USB Flash drives with USB A and USB C connectors available in each meeting room to support the transfer of your presentation to the AV supplier’s laptops.
