Presenter instructions for the 9th MUHAS Scientific Conference, 2021

Oral presentations

In the programme, there are 12 oral sessions of 60 minutes. The oral presentations are 10 minutes, which should not be exceeded. There is a maximum of 5 presentations in each oral session.

 

Your slides:

  • For 10 minutes of presentation, you can prepare around 8 (maximum 12) slides in PowerPoint, including the introduction and end slide. 
  • Please don’t forget to take an extra copy of your presentation to the conference (USB-stick and/or send it to your Gmail/your Hotmail address). 
  • Be sure that the PowerPoint slides have the same layout all way through.
  • Observe that the content of each slide is not too detailed.
  • Graphs and figures are often better than tables at an oral presentation. Flow charts are very appropriate to describe the material.
