Oral Presentation Information

Sessions are 1hr, 20 minutes long with 4 presentations scheduled in each session. 20 minutes have been allocated for each paper, approximately 10 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. This then allows approximately 5 minutes for delegates to move to a different room for another presentation if they wish.


Please ensure that presentations are delivered in the order they appear in the programme and complete the presentation and discussion within the time allocated, even in cases where only two papers have been scheduled in a session. This will allow attendees to move between rooms if necessary.


Please be in the allocated room at least five minutes prior to the session starting to allow papers to be uploaded, ready to begin promptly at the beginning of the session.

 

Bring your presentation with you on a USB - It is your responsibility to ensure your paper is uploaded correctly and presenting as desired.


Each room is equipped with a lectern, fixed microphone, built-in computer with data projector, and mouse. If other equipment is required, please arrange this prior to the conference.


Presentations should be in a format which is readable on PC computers.  
 

You do not need to bring copies of your paper with you. Conference papers will be linked to your presentation on the Transport Knowledge Conference website.
