Based on allocated presentation time, the presentation file should ideally contain approximately 10–12 PowerPoint slides. You are responsible for the content of your presentation.
The following will be at your disposal, for use during your presentation:
• Projector and screen

Submitting your presentation file
All presenters are required to submit their presentation file during registration on the first or second day of the conference, at the submissions desk in front of the ballroom. It is not possible to use your own computer for your presentation.
· Your presentation file should be in a format compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 (or earlier).

· We highly recommend that you keep a backup of your presentation file on a second USB stick.
· Please do not embed videos in your presentation.
Poster Presentation Guideline
General aim and format
· A poster is a graphically based approach to presenting research. In presenting your research with a poster, you should aim to use the poster as a means for generating active discussion of the research.
· Limit the text to about one-fourth of the poster space, and use “visuals” (graphs, photographs, schematics, maps, etc.) to tell your “story.”
Design and layout specifications
· The entire poster must be on A0 paper size (841 x 1189 cm). The poster must be oriented in the "portrait" position (long dimension is vertical).
· A banner displaying your poster title, name, and department (or class, if appropriate) should be positioned at top-center of the board. Make it obvious to the viewer how to progressively view the poster. The poster generally should read from left to right, and top to bottom. Numbering the individuals panels, or connecting them with arrows is a standard.
· Leave some open space in the design. An open layout is less tiring to the eye and mind.
· Word-process all text (including captions). Print on plain white paper with a laser printer or inkjet printer.
· Text should be readable from five feet away. Use a minimum font size of 18 points.
· Lettering for the title should be large (at least 70-point font). Use all capital letters for the title.
Poster presentations for the ISTAP VIII symposia have been allocated 3 minutes of effective presentation time. One poster can only be presented by a presenter, the other authors can register as non-presenters who help in the discussion sessions.
