International Surgical Sleep

Oral Presentation Guidelines


Please follow the below guidelines for your oral presentation. If you have any further questions please email surgicalsleep@theconferencecompany.com.  

Program
The program is available to view here. Authors accepted as oral presentations will be notified in June 2020. If you decide to withdraw your abstract, please advise us as soon as possible so that the program can be adjusted accordingly.

Meeting Venue
The Meeting venue is the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
A Speakers Preparation Room will be open during the Meeting. Please check in with staff at the Speakers Preparation Room well in advance of your presentation(s). As a back up we recommend you bring two copies on separate USB sticks. The venue halls are equipped with a laptop and data projector and you will have the choice of a lectern, lapel or handheld microphone. The Convention Centre has wireless internet access.

PowerPoint slide and Speakers’ Preparation Room
Please create your PowerPoint presentation in the 16:9 ratio, as this is the best display for the venue screens. Please take this presentation on a USB stick to the Speakers' Preparation Room, located in the Canterbury Room, at least 2 hours prior to the start of the session you are presenting in. The AV technicians will load it onto the Meeting PCs and return your USB stick.

If you would prefer to bring your own laptop, please ensure that you visit your presentation room in plenty of time prior to your talk to ensure that your laptop can be tested. If using a Mac, please also bring your own VGA adaptor. 


Presentation Time

Please prepare your 15 minute presentation time to consist of 10 minutes presentation and 5 minutes questions.
Please take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with your session venue (details will be in the Meeting App and Website) and audio visual equipment at some stage before you are scheduled to speak.
Please be in your session venue at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your session and introduce yourself to your session chairperson.  

 

Slides for your Disclosure Statement 
PowerPoint slides for your disclosures will be made available closer to the meeting. These slides are for all presentations. 

One of these slides needs to be included at the beginning of each presentation please. 

  • If you have any conflicts of interest, please indicate on the first slide and include at the start of your presentation.
  • If you do not have any conflicts of interest, please include the second slide at the start of your presentation.

 These will be reviewed at the Speakers' Preparation Room and if you have been unable to include a slide the technician will automatically include a slide noting that The Faculty Disclosure Statement was not returned.
