Abstract submissions have closed and a provisional program developed, however the committee is happy to accept late abstracts. These abstract submissions will be accepted for poster presentation, and as a possible reserve for an oral presentation if there is a late withdrawal or change to the program. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to submitting a late abstract.
Each lecture room will be equipped for the presentation of Power Point slides and include a data projector, computer (with external speakers), lectern and microphone. Multimedia clips should be embedded in your slides. Whiteboards or flip charts will be provided for workshop presentations if requested. Other audiovisual aids, such as Overhead Projectors, are not available.
Presenters will take their Power Point slides and associated media files to the conference on a memory stick, where an audiovisual technician will load your presentation. All slides will be run from a central presentation computer. However, if you have a complex presentation, which includes multiple media files, we suggest you bring your own laptop as a backup in case of difficulties loading your presentation.
All presenters will be required to register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee. Presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.
