Presentation Guidelines


Presentations should be prepared in PowerPoint and set to widescreen 16:9.

Instructions on how to set your presentation are below:

Firstly, go to the “Design” tab at the top of the page and select “Page Set-up”. Select option under “Slides sized for:” to “On-screen Show (16:9)”

PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 default is 4:3 so should be reset. PowerPoint 2013 default screen size is 16:9.

BEFORE you start generating your presentation, change your laptop page setting to: “on-screen show 16:9” and your presentation will view as you have built it – on any screen, if you do not do this your presentation will have black bars top & bottom or left & right or both and your photos and other graphics will be distorted.


Each poster must be in PORTRAIT format, printed and should not be bigger than AO (0.841 m width x 1.189 m height/tall). The posters will be mounted on boards and Velcro adhesive will be provided. Any poster printed in landscape or larger than AO may not be displayed at the conference. We recommend that posters are printed on paper, as cloth does not sufficiently attach to the boards.
