Each accepted paper has been allocated 10 minutes for presentation. This time must not be exceeded. The questions will be asked at the end of each session.
To make the most of the presentation time, you might find the following guidelines helpful:
- Speak clearly
- Summarise your written paper and present any updated material and results, concentrating on the basic concepts and conclusions, not on details.
- Please note that questions may be taken following your presentation. This should be taken into account when preparing your presentation.
It is imperative that you do not exceed your time allocation
For MATPOST 2019 we will only permit the use of PowerPoint and .pdf presentations.
Useful Presentation Tips
DO NOT PUT TOO MUCH INFORMATION ON YOUR SLIDE:
- A maximum of six or seven lines including the title (not more than 20 words).
- Avoid abbreviations, mathematics and tables of results (graphs or histograms are much better).
- Keep diagrams as simple as possible
- Company logos, if used, should be of a modest size
- NEVER USE - computer printouts, photocopied pages of books or hand-drawn transparencies
