Take this presentation on a USB stick to the Speakers' Preparation Room, located on the Ground Floor, at least 3 hours prior to the start of the session you are presenting in. The AV technicians will load it onto the Congress PCs and return your USB stick.

Presentation Time

Please prepare your 10 minute presentation time to include question time.

Please take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with your session venue (details will be in the Congress 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 

Please click here to download PowerPoint slides for your disclosures. 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.
