PowerPoint presentation guidelines

When completing your presentation please ensure you consider the following:

  • Presentations must be in 16:9 ratio and .ppt or .pptx format, not PDF

  • Do not use colours that will make text or diagrams difficult to read once projected

  • Minimum font size should be 16

  • Avoid blocks of text on a slide. Use short bullet points, not paragraphs

  • Avoid using hand drawn scanned images

  • Present the relevant information in the clearest way possible. Tables, graphs and diagrams can help at times

  • There is no set template for PowerPoint presentations, you may use a personal or company template. Logos and branding must be of a modest size and must not obstruct the presenting content

  • Create a poster for display at the conference. You will be required to print and bring your poster with you on the day

Poster presentation instructions

  • In addition to your written paper included in the conference proceedings, authors selected for a poster presentation will be asked to produce and bring a printed poster for display in the poster area at the conference.

  • At the conference in the catering / exhibition area there will be a board with a poster header listing your paper title for you to display your poster on.

  • The IET will provide Velcro to stick them to the boards.

  • During the breaks and at lunchtime or dedicated poster session you are required to spend some time at your poster as it is your opportunity to present your work directly to other delegates.

Your poster display

The poster board size is portrait A0

You should clearly display the following information on your poster:

  • The title of your paper

  • The authors’ names and their affiliations

  • Your usual contact details (e.g. an email address) to allow delegates to follow up discussion

Useful tips

  • Your display should consist chiefly of keywords, diagrams, photographs, etc.

  • Diagrams and graphs should have clear captions

  • All text should be easy to read

  • Use colour to emphasise important features

  • All graphs and diagrams should be drawn with thick lines (preferably 1mm or more in width)

  • Handwritten text or diagrams are not recommended

Remember…

  • The display should be visually appealing and should contain the essence of your paper in a form that is easy to understand

  • Try to attract the registrants to your poster. Unless they come to it, you cannot expect to have a discussion with them

  • The poster can contain visuals that were not present in your paper

  • The poster display is important. It is recommended that as much time and effort with its preparation as you did with your written paper

  • Authors are responsible for printing and transporting the poster to the event
