Instructions for speakers at EUNIS 2011 Congress


All presentations will be held in four lecture theatres in the Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin. The lecture theatres are named after famous Irish people who have been associated with Trinity College Dublin. All of these theatres will be equipped with a PC and an Apple Mac connected to a digital projector. For standard PowerPoint presentations, these will be setup ahead of time on the Apple Mac, as this machine will be used to podcast the talks. If special PC facilities are required or the use of a personal laptop, then these can be facilitated, but please let us know in advance and we will try and facilitate this, though it may not be possible in all instances. In these cases, it may not be possible to podcast the session.

All parallel presentations will be for 20 minutes presentation and 10 minutes discussion/questions. Most sessions will comprise three half hour presentations and there will be four parallel sessions in four major themes: Ideally, we would like all speakers to email their PowerPoint presentations to eunisprs@tcd.ie well in advance of the congress, but at the latest by midnight on the 12th of June. Please use the title of your talk as the subject field of your email, and you may email as many versions as you like up to the final deadline. We will use the latest version we receive and will test it out in the relevant lecture theatre and make it available for your session. If you would like to test your presentation, a speaker preview room will be located at the Beckett Theatre on the lower concourse of the conference venue. A technician will be available if you require any support.

All PowerPoint presentations will be converted to PDF and will be available on the eunis.ie website along with any papers or extended abstracts that you may have uploaded.

All abstracts, papers and presentation material will be published online with links from the eunis.ie website. No paper versions of any material will be printed. Access to the online material will be provided during the congress.

Any special requests for your presentation should be emailed to eunisprs@tcd.ie ahead of the congress.

All contributed sessions are 30 minutes long, 20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for questions. There will be up to four parallel sessions and we would like the sessions to run strictly to time, so that people may move from theatre to theatre to select sessions that they wish to attend. Your chairperson should inform you when you are running out of time and will terminate the session at the end of your allocated period, please be prepared for this.

There will be a chairperson at each session who will introduce the session and control the question and answer session at the end, the chairman will also be responsible for the timekeeping in the session.

MAKING YOUR PRESENTATION :

1. Meeting with your Session Chairperson : Speakers should plan to meet with the Session Chairperson some time before the session is due to commence. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss general session arrangements and to ensure that your session chairperson has sufficient biographical information with which to introduce you.

2. Length of Presentation : Sessions have been planned for 30 minutes each. Open discussion and the opportunity for other to share their own experiences are important elements of EUNIS. You are asked therefore to keep within your allotted time and allow sufficient time for questions.

3. Order of Presentations: Your Chairperson has been directed not to deviate from the published program order in the meeting session, because, often, attendees want to hear specific presenters in simultaneous sessions and rely on the accuracy of the program. If a Speaker listed in the program fails to appear, the Chairperson may attempt to "stretch" the remaining time slots. Chairpersons have been advised not to rearrange the published order of presentations to accommodate an individual Speaker's preference or scheduling conflict.

4. Present a Speech -- Do Not Read a Paper: As a meeting attendee you have probably experienced presenters who recited their papers without lifting their heads. Generally this is a disappointing experience. The highest rated presenters at Conferences are those who have tied their presentation to the needs of the audience by relating the critical issues to current problems and giving practical applications of their material. Experience suggests that 100-150 words per minute is a reasonable rate of speaking. If you plan to use visuals, allow 30 to 60 seconds for each.

5. Questions from the floor: After each presentation has been concluded, the Chairperson will invite questions from the floor (time permitting).

VISUALS

According to a study done by the University of Minnesota and the 3M Corporation, Speakers who use visuals in their presentations are 43% more persuasive. Below are some simple rules to follow when preparing visuals:

INTERACTING WITH CONFERENCE ATTENDEES

EUNIS conferences are unique opportunities for attendees and speakers to interact and learn from each other. This network that is nurtured at conferences can prove an invaluable sources of information, professional contacts, and friendship. We urge you to make yourself fully available to attendees throughout the conference (and particularly immediately following your session). Many speakers find that these contacts are the most valuable benefit of their conference attendance. If you have any questions, please contact your Session Chair or a member of the organising committee.
