PowerPoint presentation guidelines

When completing your presentation please ensure you consider the following:

  • Presentations must be in 16:9 ratio.
  • Do not use colours that will make text or diagrams difficult to read once projected.
  • 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.

Accepted for a poster presentation?

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 number 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 discuss your work with other delegates.

A digital version of your poster will also be viewable to attendees in our digital poster gallery.

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.

Poster pitch

If you have also been accepted for a poster pitch you will be allocated 2 minutes within the poster pitch session to present 1 slide to encourage delegates to visit the poster on display.

The template for the slide can be downloaded below.

The session chair will be monitoring the time and will end your pitch when your 2 minutes has ended.

Once you have completed your slide please ensure you upload it to the submission system by Thursday, 30 May 2024.

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.


  • 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 you take as much time and effort with its preparation as you did with your written paper

Tell people about your presentation!

Tell your colleagues and social media followers about your upcoming presentation at PEMD 2024 with a short video. It’s really easy to put together – just film yourself saying a few words about your talk on your phone, tag us, and post it!

Filming hints and tips:

  • Film in good light, and try to make sure that the light source is behind you, as this will avoid casting shadows on your face
  • Place the phone so you are looking directly in to it, and not up or down
  • Please smile, be expressive and don’t be afraid of small gestures
  • Play back your video before posting it. If there are any external sounds loud enough to be picked up on your video, have another go
  • Videos that are 60 seconds or less usually have the most impact on social media
