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.

You must use the SFB Power Point Template located here and follow all requirements for technical paper presentations. 

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

Oral Presentation Set Up

Presentations can be uploaded in advance of the Annual Meeting, or onsite. A link will be provided to oral presenters at least a month in advance of the meeting. Oral presenters must stop by the Speaker Ready Room at least 4 hours prior to their presentation time to ensure that their presentation is uploaded fully and correctly. 

Oral Presentations

Presenters will be introduced by a moderator prior to their presentation. Oral presenters should seat themselves at the front of the session room and be present for the entire session to ensure that they are ready to present, especially in the case that your session runs ahead of schedule or any last minute changes to the schedule need to be made.

Phonetic pronunciation of your name should have already been provided to the SFB team at this point. If you did not provide the phonetic pronunciation of your name, be sure to connect with your moderator in advance of your session to ensure your name is correctly pronounced.

Please be courteous of all presenters and attendees when presenting and answering questions.
