Oral Presentation in General Session

Due Date for Uploading Presentation Slides

November 19

Instructions to Upload

You will be sent an email with your presentation number, the link to upload your presentation slides, and the file naming protocol.

Presentation Format

Presentations will be delivered through Zoom and viewed by attendees in Whova, our virtual congress app and website. Your presentation should be 15-minutes, so you have 5 minutes remaining for audience questions. A moderator will help monitor the chat and facilitate the questions and answers portion of your talk.  You will also be able to use the chat to follow-up on questions and comments after your presentation. 

All presentations will be recorded, and the link to the recording will be posted on Whova so attendees can view the presentations later.

Zoom Information

We request that each presenter upload their set of presentation slides by November 19. These slides will serve as a back-up on the day of the presentation if there are technology challenges (so the producer can share your slides and advance them for you).

We’ll send you a calendar invitation from Nia Fillo (nia@swaimstrategies.com) with a Zoom link to join 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the time block for your presentation.

Tips

  • Click here to access the Whova Speaker Guide, which provides tips on uploading your session info, presenting a session, answering Q&As and more.
  • The best slide size for your PowerPoint while giving a presentation on Zoom is 16:9 or a widescreen layout.
  • In Powerpoint, it might be easier for you to present without being in fullscreen mode. To adjust this setting: On the Slide Show tab, click Set Up Slide Show. Under Show type, pick click Browsed by an individual (window).
  • Be sure to turn off phones and notifications that could cause distractions during your presentation.
  • It is highly recommended that you practice using Zoom before recording so that you are comfortable with the controls before your presentation.
  • Check audio and adjust your microphone volume if necessary.
  • Check your video and adjust your lighting and webcam angle if necessary.
