BOHS Guidelines for Presenters at Inhaled Particles XII

Keynote Speakers

Your allocated session is 20 minutes so it is suggested that you plan to speak for approximately 15 minutes to allow for questions and an introduction. BOHS require presentations to be submitted in advance of the conference to conferences@bohs.org. However, if certain circumstances make this not possible, please present yourself to a member of the organising team during registration to allow your presentation to be loaded and for you to meet your session Chair.

Oral Presentations

You are allocated 15 minutes maximum for your presentation, which includes time for questions. These timings must be adhered to strictly in order to ensure that parallel sessions keep to time and as a general rule, 12 slides (including title) should be sufficient. BOHS require all presentations to be submitted in advance of the conference to conferences@bohs.org. However, if certain circumstances mean this is not possible, please present yourself to the A/V representative in your session room during registration to allow your presentation to be loaded. Please arrive at your session room 5-10 minutes before the start of the session to meet your Chair.

Posters

Posters should be A0 size in portrait layout (1189 mm high x 841 mm wide). Font size should be sufficient to be read at a distance of at least 1m (minimum font height 5 mm). Posters will be presented on day 2 at 16.15 for one hour.  Presenters should be at their poster during this time to allow discussion with interested parties.

Posters must be on display for the duration of the conference as delegates will be encouraged to browse the posters throughout the three days. BOHS recommends presenters to be available at their posters during session breaks if at all possible in addition to the allocated slots within the programme. If you are unable to attend the full conference, please contact us to make arrangements for the poster to be displayed. A4 copies of the poster for delegates to take away are useful and can be displayed with the poster – folders and fixing materials for your poster will be provided.

Additional Information

If you require internet access for your presentation, please make this clear to the organising team when confirming your presentation to conferences@bohs.org.

It is intended that all presentations will be made available on the BOHS website following the conference; if you do not wish your presentation to be made available, please also make this clear when submitting your presentation.

Thank you for your cooperation and thank you for submitting your abstract. We look forward to seeing you in Glasgow.
