Presentation Types


If you require assistance please email
tracy@on-cue.co.nz or phone 03 928 0620

Abstracts may be submitted for one of the following presentation types:


Oral:
If your abstract is accepted as an oral presentation you will have 15 minutes to present followed by 5 minutes for discussion and questions.

Please load your presentation at the Registration Desk. Presentations are required to be loaded at least 2 hours before your session. 
Presentations requiring video/audio can be accommodated; however, we request that you arrive onsite early to confirm the details and test the facilities. Please note, presenters are requested to contact us as soon as possible for requests outside of the standard AV equipment provisions. Additional equipment cannot be guaranteed.


16:9 aspect ratio is preferred to match our screens.
Microsoft PowerPoints and Prezi are compatible.


Poster:
If your abstract is accepted as a poster, you will be required to print a poster. 
Posters should be no larger than  A0 (841mm width x 1189mm height).  Portrait orientation is advised, as this layout will fit best on the poster boards. 
The poster display boards are Velcro compatible and Velcro fixers will be provided to all poster presenters at the conference.

Posters are required to be placed on poster boards by 9 am on Tuesday 4th Dec. and should be removed by 3pm Thursday 6th Dec.  any posters remaining at that time will be disposed of.


Special Session:   
The special session is open to any topic, but should be related to the conference theme.
The only limitation is time – the time limit for each presentation is a very strict 6 minutes
There are no rules, but due to the time limit, graphs, tables or equations should be kept to a minimum.
Be creative, here are some suggestions to get you started. Your presentation could include:
•  no slides or videos
•  pictures only
•  music, dance, song, or any form of communication
•  poetry (e.g., a haiku on water, a ballad on climate change, a rap version of the Navier-Stokes equations, classical poetry on Darcy’s equation, or a country song on hydrology)

As the special session presentations are only maximum 6 minutes – no Q and A – the abstract only needs to contain the Title of the presentation, the Authors names and affiliations and a max. 150 word abstract.

Notification of Acceptance:
Notifications of acceptance will be sent via e-mail to the submitting author by the 15th of September 2018.


Conditions of Submission:
