Information for Oral and Poster Presenters

Oral Presentations

  • Each presenter will be given a 15 minute slot, which includes the time for the oral presentation and questions from the judges and audience.
  • You will be judged on your ability to respond to the questions as well as the oral presentation, so it is recommended that you speak for 10 minutes and leave 5 minutes for questions.
  • The judges will be a mixture of academic staff from the School of Clinical Medicine, and are not likely to be an expert in your area, so you should make sure that your work is pitched so that it can be understood by this broad audience.
  • The order of talks will be available in the programme (not yet available)
  • You must email your presentation to Dr Story by 16.00 on Thu 26 June 2014.
