Presenter Instructions

In keeping with Evidence Live tradition, each accepted abstract will be presented as a short oral or a poster.

Oral Presentations

Authors are allocated 15 minutes, ten plus five for questions.  Please keep to the time limit to ensure all presenters receive equal opportunity.

Room allocation, running order and Chairperson will published in the print programme available at the registration desk.  Please note the running order is subject to change in case of any absences or if  papers are better suited in a different order.

Using your own laptop is not a problem but can delay proceedings.  We will request that you present last to avoid eating into the session time.  Note, this could cut your own presentation time short.

Presentations will not be requested prior to the conference, please bring a copy with you on a USB stick for transferring onto the laptop already set up in the room.
Rooms will be open 30 minutes before each session for you to load (and run through) slides.
Clearly labelled presentations should be placed into a pre-named folder e.g. Tuesday June 19th 4pm on the desk top, a team member will be available to offer assistance if needed.

All computers will be wiped after the event.  Permission to keep a pdf copy of your presentation for adding to the Evidence Live Archive will be requested by way of a form requiring a signature.  These forms will be on the lectern in each room.

A seat marked Reserved will be made available for you at the front row.  Please be in the room and prepared at least five minutes before the session is due to start.


Poster Presentations

Each poster must be on view up to and including the last break on Wednesday 20th June (15:30 – 16:00).  Presenters should be available for the poster session immediately after lunch on Tuesday 19th (13:15).  Authors will be encouraged by a representative of CEBM and/or the BMJ to give a 1-2 minute summary of the major findings described in the poster.

The mounting board for each poster is 6′ high x 3′ wide (portrait) and can accommodate one A0 poster each side.

Poster boards will be numbered. Your poster number will be the number beside your title in the printed programme.  Velcro fastenings will be provided.
