Guide to Speakers

  1. Each session will last 80 minutes and comprise 5 presentations, each lasting 8 – 10 minutes. For this format, we recommend that you communicate what key messages you want the conference delegates to discuss. These may be business or policy related, other empirical, conceptual, or methodological.
  2. Each paper will be slotted into a group (see recommended format above), or discussed individually within the allocated time.   
  3. Please aim to arrive at your presentation session at least 10 minutes before the start time to meet your session chair and fellow presenters.
  4. If you are using Powerpoint, bring your file on a USB memory stick.
  5. There will be a steward in each room who will help you upload your presentation before the start of the session if possible. If this is not possible, they will help you before your presentation.
  6. A good opportunity to discuss your work is also to engage in others’ presentations and through debates in more informal networking events. We are about 300 people from about 35 nations.


Please take great care not to overrun your time slot

The conference programme is very tight. Delegates have travelled a long way to be heard and we want to make sure that everyone has an equal time.
