Please bring your presentation to the conference on a USB stick.  Please do not plan to use your laptop for your presentation.  If you absolutely must use your laptop for some reason, please contact Dorothy.Steane@utas.edu.au in advance.

The screen is a standard 4:3 screen.

All talks will be recorded. We have an opt-out policy.  If you do not wish your presentation to be made publicly available after the conference, please let us know ASAP.

There will be facilities in the room next door to the lecture theatre for people to upload and check their presentations.  Please see Paul Tilyard, who will be available in this room before each session to assist.

If your presentation is ready before the conference, please feel free to email it to Dorothy.Steane@utas.edu.au who will upload it for you. All powerpoint presentations will be uploaded to a secure site, accessible only by the UTAS members of the organising committee and Paul Tilyard.  All presentations will be deleted at the conclusion of the conference.

Please arrive at your session a few minutes early and introduce yourself to the session chair, who will explain how the session will be run.

Poster presenters

The posters will be displayed in the UTAS Staff Club, one of the conference hubs where we will have lunch each day.  You will be able to put your poster onto your assigned display board during the lunch break on Monday 18th Feb.  The official Poster Session will be on Monday evening, 5-7 pm, but the posters will be displayed for the duration of the conference, until the end of lunch on Wednesday 20th Feb. 

Gondwana Genomics has kindly offered to sponsor some poster prizes:

1st: AUD 250

2nd: AUD 150

3rd: AUD 100

The criteria that will be taken into consideration by the judging panel will be:

  • CONTENT: Is the content accessible to an intelligent non-specialist audience i.e. not too much jargon, technical language? Is the purpose of the research clearly defined?

  • ORGANISATION: Does the information have a logical flow/structure; is there integration between text and images; appropriate font size, clear labelling of graphs/figures? 

  • AESTHETICS: Does the poster catch the eye, attract viewers and clearly convey a take-home message?
