Oral Presenters

Oral Presentation Format

Oral presenters will present a 15 minute presentation of their abstract (12 minute oral presentation and 3 minutes of Q&A). Oral presentations will be accompanied by a slide deck, utilizing the template provided by SFB. 

Presenter Content and Media Guide

These guidelines are CRUCIAL in the creation of your presentation to prevent onsite issues with uploading, among other things. For example, presenters cannot use the program Keynote to create their slide deck.

SFB encourages the use of the SFB Power Point Template located here and follow all requirements for technical paper presentations.  If you do not use the template in its entirety, please use the cover slide. 

For helpful hints on presenting your material, please review our Presenter Tips
