Oral Presentation Guidelines

All presentations should be 10-12 minutes long. Each presentation will be followed by a 3-5 minute question period mediated by the session chair. Practice ahead of time to make sure your talk is an appropriate length.

We recommend you test your audiovisuals using Zoom prior to the conference date. Please reach out to lfsgrads@gmail.com if you need help setting up a Zoom room to test this.

If you cannot stay for the duration of the entire conferece, please join the Zoom call at least 10-15 minutes prior to your session.

When building your presentation, we recommend you use standard sans-serif fonts (e.g., Calibri, Helvetica, Arial); if an unusual font is used it may not be readable.

  • Test your presentation on another computer to insure fonts are standard and components such as movies are included rather than merely linked in your presentation
  • Review these specifications when preparing your presentation
