The number of slides should be based on the length of your presentation. As a rule of thumb, you should have one slide per minute of talk time.
If you are including videos in your presentation, it is highly recommended you use a standard codec to avoid playback issues. Exporting the presentation using the Package for CD option from PowerPoint will ensure that all media files are copied into one location and file paths are adjusted inside the presentation.
Windows Video Player is installed in the presentation computer.
At the conference before your presentation, we recommend you to check with conference AV to ensure the slides are displayed correctly by the conference computer.
Presenters unable to join in person, will be able to present virtually via zoom. Still we ask them to upload their presentation at least one day before their talk, and to connect 15 minuets before the start of the session to test connection and slides.
Virtual oral presenter will be receiving instructions and an individualized zoom link to join the oral session prior of their presentation.
Each session will be hosted by at least two chairs and a Zoom technical moderator.
For the Q&A in-person audience will use microphones in the ballroom corridors, virtual attendees will use the fNIRS commenting feature, Zoom Q&A will not be available.
