You will probably wish to prepare some PowerPoint slides to support your presentation. Prepare your slides as a PowerPoint file or a PDF and bring them with you to the conference. You will need to load your presentation onto the computer before your stream, to facilitate a smooth transition between speakers. We recommend that you also bring your presentation on a data stick or other portable memory device. You will not generally be able to plug your own laptop into the conference projection system.
As an oral presenter, you can deliver your presentation live to an audience effectively and engage in fruitful discussions with the audience.
Things to do before presentation at a conference to prevent technical delays/issues
As a poster presenter you can deliver your presentation effectively to an audience in the form of a poster.
There is no formal oral presentation in a poster session, instead each author is assigned a display area on which diagrams, graphics, data, pictures/photos, and a small amount of text are presented.
The poster should be self-explanatory, but the author should be available at certain times, such as refreshment breaks and during the time devoted to poster session, to interact with viewers and answer questions.
