Presentation Formats And Guidelines For Presenters And Delegates

Individual paper presentations
Individual papers will be presented in 30 minute sessions and presenters are asked to plan their contributions to allow time for good time for discussion and debate after their formal presentation. Presenters are also asked to plan their use of PowerPoint sensibly given the time available and a guide of 5 slides is recommended dependent of course on the nature of the research being presented.

Each individual session will be chaired by an appointed individual whose role is to try and manage the use of time effectively and ensure good time for discussion and a debate which gives the opportunity for all participants at the session to contribute.

Abstracts and full papers for all presentations will be posted on the website and will be available on a CD-Rom at the start of the conference. All abstracts are included in the printed conference programme for delegates.

Discussion workshops
The review process identifies papers which could be grouped together for discussion and thus allow space in the programme for a wide and varied range of research work to be presented.

Workshops have been allocated in 30 minute (two papers) and 60 minute (3-4 papers) sessions.

Presenters in these workshops have been asked to limit their presentations to an overview of their work (using probably no more than 2 PowerPoints if desired) to allow good time for discussion.

There are 10 symposia sessions. Each symposium has a rationale and a series of individual presentations and all have a chair in charge of the presentations and some also have a discussant to facilitate good debate after the presentations.
