+
Your presentation format is entirely up to you.
+
 
+
We expect that you'll be presenting from your own laptop, but if this is an issue please get in touch with your [[Speaker Liaison]] and we can make alternate arrangements. We usually ask for presentation material after the conference so that it can be made available.

Each presentation slot is 50 minutes, except tutorials which have a double slot of one hour and 40 minutes. It is expected that your talk will go for approximately 40 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions, unless you prefer to take questions during your presentation. For tutorials, it is assumed that questions will be asked during the tutorial rather than at the end. Room monitors will be stationed in each conference room and will help guide you

with timing and identifying questions from the audience. You will need to have practiced beforehand however to ensure that you don't go significantly over or under time.
