Oral Presentation Guideline
Please follow the following instructions for oral presentation:
- All oral presentation must be in English. All presentation will be performed offline. Speakers must present onsite at the venue.
- The title of your presentation file should be “Symposium Name – Your Name.” Send your presentation slide as .pptx to the committee no later than August 30th, 2023 (submission link will be sent to presenter).
- Oral Presentations Talks will be allotted 3 minutes total (2 minutes for presentation and 1 minute for Q&A).
- Prepare your presentation slide with maximum 7 slides for each presenter in Microsoft PowerPoint (*.ppt or *.pptx) (PowerPoint slide size is 16:9) or Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf) to guarantee they will open successfully on an onsite PC.
- The recommended content for presentation slide is as follows:
- Background and aim
- Material and methods
- Results and discussion
- Conclusion and suggestion
- We recommend you save your PowerPoint presentation using PPT(X).
- Slides (general): Limit each slide to a single idea. Make them as simple and large as possible so that they are readable from at least 50 ft. 18-24 pt font is a good minimum size. Please use the suggested fonts: Arial, Times New Roman, Tahoma.
- Slides (data): Graphs are better than tables. If you must use tables, do NOT use ones directly from manuscripts or papers; retype them, and include only critical information. Do not complicate unnecessarily. Put only 1 figure/graph per slide, and do not use 3D unless the additional axis provides information (it rarely does). Please save images/ video inserted into PowerPoint to a folder location.
- In case you have any videos in your presentation, please test your presentation with the onsite PC several hours before your session.
- The first slide should attach a logo from ISCADB.
- If your presentation file is made using Macintosh, bring your own laptop with a VGA adapter or HDMI. Or as an alternative, please check in advance (2 hours before your session starts) their Windows compatibility.
- Please take the speakers’ standby seat at least 15 minutes before the session starts and follow the instructions from the Chairs or technician.
- In presentation, speakers should operate keypad/ mouse with monitor.
- The “next chairperson’s seat” is located at the right front of the room, and the “next speaker’s seat” is located at the left front of the room. Please be seated at the provided chair. The committee will guide you at the presentation session.
If you have any questions, please contact our scientific committee.
Poster Presentation Guideline
Poster presenters should bring your printed poster to the venue.
- All posters must be written in English and presented briefly in 2 minutes presentation with 1 minute discussion. All presentation will be performed offline. Speakers must present onsite at the venue.
- Posters must be in 60 cm (width) x 80 cm (height) (Portrait position) to keep the poster legible.
- The poster boards will be numbered according to the Poster code given by the organizers and will be grouped by streams.
- Recommended font size: minimum 16 font size.
- Arial font should be used throughout the poster with such clarity. The title and subheadings should be written in bold. Italics should be avoided as it would be harder to read from a distance.

- The logo of the affiliated institution/ university and ISCADB should be placed on the speaker’ upper left-hand corner.
- Please be considerate when using colors for the presentation, keep only 2-3 colors as this would be a formal scientific poster. Please select background colors that contrast well with the font to allow easier reading of your text. Avoid background with bright or dark color and full of texture as this will distract readers.
- Make sure that any photographs or figures being used in the poster are with sufficient size so that they are clearly visible, with a minimum 300-dpi resolution. The number of photographs should be limited to only those that are essential and relevant for the poster (preferable not exceeding 4-6 photos).
