Information for Presenters

Oral Presentations

Download: Print Version of Oral Presenter Info

Oral presentations will be allocated a strict 20 minute presentation time, including time for questions.

Presenters should contact their session chair well before the start of the session, and are requested to test all aspects of their presentations before the session. The suggested times to meet with session chairs and to check the presentation is given in the table below:

Session Chairs and Meeting Times

For those bringing their presentation on CDR or USB stick, laptops with USB audio devices will be provided, preinstalled with Acrobat Reader, Open Office, and Powerpoint. (Note that embedded objects in Powerpoint presentations can sometimes cause problems so these should be tested before the session.) Alternatively, presentations can be e-mailed to Christopher Harte or Katy Noland well before the session.

Audio connections are available via 3.5 mm stereo minijack, paired 1/4 in jacks or paired RCA phono connectors.

The data projector resolution is 1024-by-768, and has a standard VGA 15 pin D connector. Spare video adapter cables are available for newer Apple laptops.

There will be NO over-head projector (OHP) for transparencies.

Internet access is available in the Skeel lecture theatre, but NOT IN PP2, where two of the parallel sessions Audio to score and Alignment and retrieval, are being held.

Poster presentations

Poster sessions will be held on Monday 12th, Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th September from 12:40 pm to 2:20 pm in the Great Hall in the Peoples' Palace. The session on Wednesday 14th September will be devoted to MIREX-related posters. Each poster will be on display at only one of these three sessions.

Each poster has to fit on a poster board that is 3 feet (91.4 cm) wide and 6 feet (182.9 cm) tall. However, posters should not reach down to the floor as this makes them hard to read. Posters should therefore be no more than 85 cm (33.5 in) wide and no more than 119 cm (46.9 in) tall (i.e., no larger than A0 portrait or A1 landscape).

IMPORTANT: Posters wider than the stated dimensions will not fit on the poster boards and cannot be displayed. A0 landscape is TOO WIDE.

Authors are responsible for putting up and taking down their own posters. On the day on which your poster will be displayed, take your poster to the Great Hall between 8:30 am and 12:15 pm, find the poster board which is labelled with your name and poster title and put your poster up using the velcro tabs which will be provided. You must then remove your poster by 6:30 pm on the same day.

If you would like to present a demonstration in association with your poster, please inform David Meredith as soon as possible, so that we can ensure that there will be sufficient tables, power points, etc. Demo space is strictly limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Wired internet connections for up to 8 machines will be available in the Great Hall during the poster presentations.
