INFORMATION FOR PRESENTERS
Format of Presentations
Presentation Formats for papers, workshops, symposia and posters can be found at the Call for Papers page.
Every room will have a desktop PC (Windows 10, with internet access) and projector. There will also be a standard VGA cable to allow your own laptop to be connected. Some rooms may have HDMI connectors, but this is not guaranteed, so you need to bring along your HDMI to VGA adaptor. Other presentation accessories such as display adapters for MacBooks, laser pointers or remotes will not be provided. Power supply is ~230V with a UK-style 3-pin socket.
Each 90 minute session will typically have up to three paper presentations. You might wish to prepare some handouts for your audience. Do be on time and do not swap sessions without informing the organisers. Please be prepared that the audience might sometimes stream in and out of a session and do wear your nametags at all times during the conference.
Role of Chairperson for Paper Presentations
The chairperson during a paper presentation session is the last presenter. Your role is to introduce the session and the presenters and to keep the session to time. At the beginning of the session, please provide a brief introduction to the session and welcome all conference participants. We recommend that you meet the speakers in the session room 5 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. This will enable you and the speakers to meet each other and discuss any issues prior to the session. Each speaker has 20 minutes followed by 5 minutes of questions. You might wish to give a warning when there are 5 minutes remaining so that all the presentations can end on time.
Poster size: A1 (approximately 65 cm wide by 80 cm high, or 25½” by 31½”). The design and layout of the poster is left to the discretion of the presenter, however, each poster is required to contain a panel listing the title of the abstract, the name(s) of the author(s) and institutional affiliations(s). Posters can be attached to the panel boards by Velcro tapes or pins, which will be provided by the organiser. There will be no table space and power points around the booth for display of artefacts or laptops.
Please put up your poster on 2 Nov 2020 (Day 1) between 3.00-5.30pm or 3 Nov 2020 (Day 2) between 8.30-9.30 am at NIE7-02-01 (Science Education Lab 1) and remove them before 10am on 4 Nov 2020. Any posters not removed by 10.30am will be discarded.
