Presentation Guidelines

General Information and Presentation Information

  • Oral Presentations are limited to 8 minutes (Strict 5min limit with a 1-min warning before the end + 3min questions and answers period). Slides, abstracts, and handouts cannot contain advertising, QR codes, corporate logos, trade names, or product-group messages of commercial companies.
  • Prepare a 16:9 PowerPoint presentation (PPT) for your oral presentation. 
  • Please be in the room for your session 10 minutes before the start time of the session. The Session Chairs will start and end strictly on time.
  • PowerPoint presentations should have a maximum of 8 slides (not including title and author slides)
  • Presenters are strongly encouraged to use the WHRC 2024  presentation slide template

Technical:

  • Your presentation must be prepared in PowerPoint2000 or any later PowerPoint Version (MS Windows).
  • Set the slide size of the page to “On-screen show” and landscape orientation in the page set-up section. (Portrait orientation will not be displayed properly).


Formatting:

  • Use high-contrast lettering, and not too much text per page (max. 5-10 lines or 15-20 words).
  • Font sizes should be no smaller than size 14 or 16 for maximum visibility.
  • Make sure you use high-contrast colors for the best definition of your text. Please be aware that red letters or lines are usually not visible.


Avoid special characters:

  • To avoid any compatibility problems, please do not use special characters (i.e. “, Ö, Ø, ñ, ?, ®, ý, }, { etc) to name your presentation files.

Content and Organization:

  • As a general rule, you should not present more than 1 slide per minute.
  • Do not read the slides word for word. Visual material provides cues and images to support your verbal presentation.
  • Make sure your presentation has a clear flow from introduction to conclusion. Identify key points and why they are important.
  • Include take-home points. Consider which 2-3 points you want the audience to remember after your presentation.

Less is more!
