Presentation guidelines and submission

The conference will have  participants representing a wide range of methods and project hypotheses. To enable a fruitful discussion, please make sure you explain the major aspects of your project, allowing everyone who is not in your field of expertise to follow your presentation. As PhD students from all over the world are attending this conference, all presentations and posters must be in English.

 

Submission guidelines

 

Oral presenters must submit their power point presentation, the rest of participants must sumbit BOTH ther blitz power point presentation and their poster in pdf. 

A printed version of the poster must be brought to the venue. We do not have printing services. All participants must submit their presentations by SUNDAY 13 NOVEMBER 2016.

Presentation guidelines

 

Oral presentations

 

You must prepare a PowerPoint presentation lasting 7-8 minutes, after that you will have 2 minutes for questions by the audience.

 

We will collect all presentations and run them from our computer. It will not be an option to use your own laptop. The presentations must be saved in a format compatible with PowerPoint 2010 or older (with the extension .PPTX) and with a slide size of 4:3. Presentations in other formats will be sent back for editing. 

Please name your file as follows: session_surname_name.pptx. Note that there will be a NOK 10000 prize for best oral presentation, to be used for operational costs of the PhD project. The presentations will be rated according to the following: timing, presentation skills, content and attractiveness.

 

Blitz presentation + Poster


All participants who do not have an oral presentation will have both a speed presentation and a poster exhibited in the poster sessions.

 

Poster:

Due to space restrictions, the maximum poster size is A0 in portrait orientation, i.e. 841 mm wide × 1189 mm high. 

You should mount your poster at the poster board with the corresponding number upon your arrival. Your poster should be mounted until the end of the conference. YOU HAVE TO PRINT YOUR POSTER YOURSELF AND BRING IT WITH YOU.

There will be two poster sessions during the conference, one on 22/9 and one on 23/9 (1h 30min each day).

Note that there will be NOK 10000 prize for best poster, to be used for operational costs of the PhD project.

The posters will be rated according to content and attractiveness. For guidelines on succesive poster making, have a look at this power point presentation from the Children's National Medical Center. Remember that YOU MUST stand next to your poster during your poster session. We encourage you to practice your presentation skills also here, taking care of body posture and language.

 

Speed presentation:

The concept of "Blitz presentation" has been borrowed from our Dutch sister organization, ONWAR. The Blitz session is a rapid series of super-brief presentations immediately prior to the poster session, where you have the opportunity to advertise your poster.

You are given 60 SECONDS to “sell” your scientific content and convince other participants to visit your poster. Please keep in mind that your blitz presentation should be a convincing and fun teaser, not a complete presentation of your project. Be creative!

We will be very strict on the time limit and therefore recommend that you prepare only TWO slides in PowerPoint and minimize the use of animations. The first slide must include your name and affiliation. 

We will collect all presentations and run them from our computer. It will not be an option to use your own laptop.

The presentations must be saved in a format compatible with PowerPoint 2010 or older (with the extension .PPTX. and with a slide size of 4:3. Presentations in other formats will be sent back for editing. 

Please name your file as follows: posternumber_surname_name.pptx).Along with your presentation, you must send us a PDF version of your poster (posternumber_surname_name.pdf).
