Presentations

 
The following are general guidelines regarding the preparation and delivery of your presentation.

Pre-conference

  • All PowerPoint presentations must use the relevant conference template. Please email conferences@airah.org.au for a copy.
  • Submit your PowerPoint presentation to the Conference Organiser by the nominated deadline.
  • Your presentation should not have been presented at any other event, unless it contains new information and has been tailored for the audience.
  • Corporate speakers should introduce their company only briefly, and should declare any conflicts of interests at the beginning of their presentation.
  • If, due to unforeseen circumstances, you are no longer able to present at the conference, please notify AIRAH's Conference Organiser immediately. 
  • If you wish to be put in touch with any of the other conference speakers, to discuss the content of their presentation, please contact AIRAH.
  • Advise AIRAH of any AV, catering or any other special requirements you have, well-ahead of the conference.

During the conference

  • You will be provided with information as to when arrive at the venue, ahead of your presentation. Generally, this will be in the meal break before your session. Please be on time.
  • On arrival, ask for the Conference Organiser, who will assist you and introduce you to the session chair and the AV technician.
  • Bring a copy of your presentation on USB. Any video or media files should be provided as separate files.
  • AV technicians will be available throughout the conference to assist with pre-loading presentations onto conference laptops before the session, and checking the formatting is correct.
  • During the meal break, ahead of their session, speakers will be asked to test their presentations, the microphone and the remote control to familiarise themselves with the equipment and ensure they are comfortable.
  • Please ensure you do not exceed the time limit for your presentation. A 3-minute warning bell will sound.
  • Group questions and answers will take place at the end of each conference session, unless otherwise stated.

Post-conference
  • AIRAH will provide each delegate with a conference proceedings folder, which contains the technical paper of each speaker. Where a speaker does not provide a technical paper, AIRAH may ask the speaker to provide a copy of their PowerPoint presentation instead.
  • AIRAH will also provide delegates only with a non-editable PDF copy of each speaker's presentation following the Workshop. If your presentation contains sensitive information, please let the Conference Organiser know to arrange an edited version to be made available instead.
