Oral Presentation Guidelines

A maximum of 6 presenters will be assigned to each session and each presenter will have 10-12 minutes to present plus 5 minutes for questions/discussion. In the case of multi-authored studies, more than one person may present within these 10-12 minutes. Each paper session is assigned a chair who moderates and monitors time. Paper sessions will be scheduled in meeting rooms with laptops, overhead projection and sound system. Please ensure that you introduce yourself to the chair of your conference session at least 5 minutes prior to the start of your session to organise uploading your presentation. We also ask all delegates to bring their presentation on a USB.

Please note that oral communication sessions will not have simultaneous translation. Therefore, in order to ensure greater dialogue among those present, we suggest that the presentations be prepared as follows:

- For presentations in English, we suggest that the projected material is in Portuguese.

- For presentations in Portuguese, we suggest that the projected material is in English.

- For presentations in Spanish, we suggest that the projected material is in English or Portuguese.

The projected material may be bilingual as well.
