Guideline for Oral and Poster Presentation

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.
