Presentation Guidelines

Presentation Format

Presenters should note that the computers to be used are running on Windows and thus should have presentations in compatible formats such as MS PowerPoint files, PDFs, and videos (e.g., MP4, WAV, AVI, etc). Please also inform the technical support team if your presentations will need audio. The presentation will be displayed on a 4:3 aspect ratio screen.

Technical Room / Review Area

Presenters are NOT allowed to use their own laptops during presentation. Hence, everyone is required to turn over their files to the Technical Room at least a day before their presentation to give them ample time to review. We require those presenting on Monday to submit by 12:00 on Monday, and for the succeeding days, by 18:00 of the day before. All files submitted to the Technical Room by the specified deadline are considered final and revisions are strictly not allowed.

Language

The official language during the symposium is English and will be the medium used for both oral and poster presentations.

Presentation Duration

Each presenter will be given a total of 15 minutes onstage. Presenters are given 12 minutes to present his/her study and the remaining 3 minutes will be for entertaining questions from the judges and audience. Please be present in your respective session rooms at least 10 minutes before your assigned time so the session volunteers can confirm your presence inside the assigned room.

Oral Presentation Identification Code (OPID)

The OPID will serve as a guide for both the presenters and the technical team in identifying which session they belong to and the date their presentation will be held. Oral presenters should rename their presentations according to their OPID before submitting their presentations to the Technical Room for easier identification. Please refer to the guide below (please take note that military time should be used for the presentation start time):
