Presentation format/timings

Parallel session presentations

Parallel sessions are 90 minutes long and will include four presentations. Presentation time for each accepted abstracts in a parallel sessions is 20 minutes (15 minutes for presentation plus 5 minutes Q&A).

Student ‘Short Pitches’

Student Short Pitches should comprise 1 title slide and 1 presentation slide. This is a (slightly extended) version of the well-known ‘elevator pitch’, aiming to interest others in the problem you are addressing, the approach being taken (and the emerging results, for those nearing the end of their studies). Timings will be confirmed to presenters in advance and experienced academics will act as facilitators for the session. Conference attendees will also be invited to attend and take part in group discussions at the end of the session. Students are welcome to also bring posters (see below specifications).


Posters should be printed no larger than A0 (841mm x 1189mm) in portrait orientation and brought to the Conference for display.

At the conference, facilities will be available for PowerPoint presentations.
