Allowed Speaking Time

Please take note of your speaking slot in the programme:

Keynote Speakers – you have 1 hour which includes any time you’d like to allocate for Q&A
Oral presentations – you have 20 minutes which includes 15 minutes for your presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A
Birds of a Feather – each presenter has 1 hour – as there is no Chair for the BoF sessions, it is vital that speakers keep to their allotted time
Lightning Talks / Poster – each speaker has 5 minutes to talk to 20 slides, with each slide advancing after 15 seconds


Virtual Presenters

You will present directly via the Zoom application. The day before you are due to present you will be sent the following via email:

  • Your personalised Zoom Link – you will be asked to join your session during the previous break to complete a brief tech rehearsal
  • Name & contact details of your Zoom Meeting Host
  • Reminder of ‘on-the-day’ instruction

All presentations will be recorded and streamed into out virtual conference platform. You do not need to be logged in to the virtual conference platform during your virtual presentation.

We recommend familiarising yourself with sharing your presentation slides in zoom in advance. Any questions received from attendees (either at the live conference, or watching via the virtual platform) will be asked to you via zoom by the session moderator.

On the day we will ask that you join your zoom meeting in the break before your session starts. There will be an AV technician in the meeting who can help check that your audio, video and screen share are working correctly (there may also be other virtual presenters in the meeting).

You are welcome to watch on the virtual conference platform during others presentations, but note there will be a delay and you should not be viewing in the platform during your presentation.
