Speed Presentation Guideline
    Speed (5-min) presentations are an increasingly popular option in large academic conferences. The key for a successful speed presentation is to understand the format. Below are some important guidelines:
  1. Have a clear message – speed presentations are intended to be brief introductions to your work. If the audience finds your work interesting, they will come to discuss with you later. Make sure your key messages (e.g. your study question, the novelty of your approach, its overall relevance) come across clearly to the audience.
  2. Be selective – remember that the audience will be listening many presentations in a short period of time. They will only remember a few things per presentation, so do not try to fit too many key messages.
  3. Do not rush – a speed presentation is not meant to be a very-fast version of a regular presentation. Do not torture your audience rushing through 20 slides without time for them to process your content.
  4. 5-10 slides – a common rule of thumb for effective presentations is to have ~1 slide per minute. If you add the title plus a few ‘transition’ slides (i.e. slides like acknowledgements or some photos that do not require much time) you can fit 5-10 slides, not more.
  5. Rehearse – make sure that you know how much time it takes to do your presentation and rehearse until you have a presentation that takes a bit less than 5 minutes (e.g. 4 min 30 sec).
  6. Do not exceed your time (!!) – this is very important. The session chairs will strictly enforce the 5-min limit per presentation. So please make sure you finish before that time, otherwise you will be embarrassed being interrupted by the moderator and not being able to complete your presentation.
  7. Enjoy – this is the chance for you to share your ideas with an engaged audience.
  8. Audio-visual testing facilities are available for your testing and viewing during the Conference. More information will be available in the Notification Letter to be sent in June 2018 if the abstract is accepted.
