To aid speaker introduction by the Session Chair, please request submit your speaker biography by logging into your dashboard and click on "Paper Your Presenting".

Oral Presentations

The duration of formal oral presentations is 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for questions. Please ensure that your presentation duration has been carefully checked (15 minutes maximum). The presentation schedule will be strictly enforced by each Session Chair.

Oral presenters are requested to submit their final presentation files (from disk or pen drive) to their ISSC conference account at or before registration. Advice will be given at the registration desk. The presentation will then be accessible via the presenter's ISSC Dashboard.

Presenters are asked to subsequently verify that that all necessary presentation materials are in place and tested in their presentation venue, well before the session commences. Presenters are requested to find an opportunity in advance of the presentation to familiarise themselves with the venue and podium environment. A member of the conference committee will be available to help, in each presentation venue, throughout the conference.

Presenters should introduce themselves to their Session Chair who will be available in the presentation venue in the interval before the session begins. This will allow a final check that all necessary presentation materials are in place before the session starts.

Presenter are requested to consider including slide page numbering and/or a presentation thermometer to indicate the progress of the presentation.

The following presentation equipment will be provided in each venue:

  • PC with Microsoft Powerpoint, linked to a data projector.
  • Logitech Cordless 2.4 GHz presentation control / lasar pen for remote control of presentation. This will be available for testing in the presentation venues throughout the conference.
  • Overhead projector
  • Voice projection equipment
