Presenters’ Instruction

Please locate your session chair prior to the start of your session to let them know you are there. Names of the session chairs will also be posted in the Program page a week or two prior to the Symposium. The session chairs will also be listed in the proceedings.

  • Please arrive 15 minutes early to the A/V table to have the lapel microphone attached and tested. The microphone must be returned to the A/V table when your presentation is finished.
  • Your presentation will be brought up on the data projector screen (no transparencies) automatically at the appropriate time.
  • Presenters will have the use of a remote mouse to advance or reverse the Power Point slides.
  • A laser pointer will be available from the podium.
  • You will be given 30 minutes to give your presentation (presentation = 25 minutes, questions and answers = 5 minutes). You must keep to the allotted time. A timer will be available to help you monitor your time.

Speakers Suggestion

  • Preparation is essential: Rehearse the delivery before a friend or group.
  • Control your breathing: Speak slowly and distinctly in a normal voice. Hold your speaking level through to the end of each sentence; don't let your voice run down.
  • Look at your audience: This holds their attention and allows you to project your voice into the room, rather than down at the lectern.
  • Everyone enjoys humor, except: When it's inappropriate or poorly executed.
  • Watch your time: Use an agenda to guide the audience and yourself throughout the presentation. During the rehearsal, determine at which point in time you should arrive at each topic. The session chair will manage adherence to the allocated time and speakers that exceed their allocated time will be removed from the podium.
  • Be sensitive to your audience: Assume some familiarity with your topic in general.
    • Keep language simple and understandable.
    • Strive to clarify rather than to obscure; be explanatory not evasive.
      Avoid jargon and acronyms.
    • Eliminate everything that isn't directly related to the point of your presentation.
    • A listener who would like to talk further about your presentation can consult with you immediately after the session or make an appointment with you during or after the conference.
