11th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias

11th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias11-14 November 2018 | International Convention Centre Sydney | Australia

Presentation Guidelines

IMPORTANT Note Regarding Oral and Data Blitz Presentation:
When preparing for the conference, presenting authors of oral and data blitz presentations can assume background knowledge on frontotemporal dementia and related conditions. In order to maximise use of time and dynamism of presentations, the committee recommends that broad introductory slides be avoided.

Oral Presentation

Presenters will be given a total of 15 minutes, comprised of a 12 minute presentation with 3 minute Q&A. It is important that you strictly adhere to the stipulated times to ensure that our program runs to time.

Presenters are encouraged to use their own PowerPoint template, however a conference template will be available should you require this. Please ensure your PowerPoint template is set to 16:9 ratio.

Data Blitz Presentation & Poster

Selected poster preseters will be given 2 minutes as an oral presentation to advertise their work and entice delegates to visit their poster presentation. 

This type of presentations will offer a fast-paced overview of some of the most exciting research presented at this year’s poster sessions. 
The goal of the Data Blitz presentation should NOT be to present complete data, but to advertise one’s work and to entice delegates to visit their poster presentation for further discussions. 
Given the strict time limitation for the Data Blitz, presenters should prepare NO MORE THAN TWO PowerPoint slides. Therefore, some presenters may either select one major result of their study or some may elect to introduce their study and methods only, and encourage others to visit their poster to discover and discuss the results. 

Presenters are encouraged to use their own PowerPoint template, however a conference template will be available should you require this. Please ensure your PowerPoint template is set to 16:9 ratio.

Poster

  • Hard copy posters should be printed in “AO Portrait” (1,189mm high x 841mm wide OR 46.8 inches high x 33.1 inches wide)
  • Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors’ names. Ensure that they are the same as in the submitted abstract.
  • The text, illustrations, etc. should be bold enough to be read from a distance of 1-2 meters.
  • Your poster number will be emailed to you 3 weeks prior and will also be listed in the conference app available 1 week prior to the conference. Please mount your poster on the board with the same number.
  • The Conference Secretariat will provide the hook-and-loop velcro  (both sides of velcro) for attachment to the board. You are welcome to provide your own but please ensure it is not double sided tape or blu tac as they are not as strong as velcro.
  • We kindly ask that you be at your poster to answer questions during the poster viewing times indicated in the conference program.
