Guidelines for presenters

Electronic presentations

A Mac laptop computer and projector, and remote control and laser pointer will be available for PowerPoint presentations. Bring your material on a memory stick. An assistant will help you load and test your presentation before the morning or the afternoon session, depending on when you are scheduled.

Minimize or avoid the use of transitions and animations in your presentation. We also encourage you to save a second copy of your presentation in PDF format. If all the information is visible in the PDF, this can be used for a smoother, more accurate display of your slides, or as a backup.

For tips and guidelines for building your electronic presentation, visit the ProjectionNet Presentation Style Guide.

Be aware that visuals are best seen when there is maximum contrast between the type and background. For hints on graphics, and presentations in general, please see Scientifically Speaking (Oceanography Society).
