Presentation Information

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations will be allocated 20 minutes, which includes time for questions and answers to be held at the conclusion of each presentation or at the end of the session.

Poster Presentations
Participants wishing to submit an abstract for a poster display instead of an oral presentation will need to ensure that their actual poster display does not exceed A0 Portrait size (1189mm high x 841mm wide). These will be mounted on a display panel. Full poster preparation guidelines will be provided to interested parties closer to the conference date.
