Only an author or co-author should present a paper.

Authors must email presentations to their stream email address by not later than Friday March 30th 2007. All presentations will be pre-loaded onto the resident conference pc running PowerPoint that will be used for the presentations.

You will have 20 minutes to present your paper. This includes any setting up time, so it is important that you provide the conference organisers with your presentation by the 30th March to allow sufficient time for your presentation to be loaded and tested on the resident machine prior to the conference.

We actively discourage/disallow presenters to use their own laptops/disks/memory sticks etc. This can cause substantial problems in setting up which disrupts the flow of the conference. If you have special needs (e.g. your presentation is not standard PowerPoint or uses additional programmes, or you intend to use equipment other than the standard pc that will be provided) let us know as soon as possible and by not later than Friday 30th March. We may otherwise be unable to provide the equipment you need.

You will have a maximum of 10 minutes for questions.

The most common fault in presentations is to spend too long in introductory comments. It is not uncommon to find even long established academics giving background information for 15 minutes and then be surprised to discover they have only 5 or so more minutes to talk about the important part of their presentation.

To a presenter, 20 minutes seems like 5 minutes. You must therefore be aware of the passage of real, rather than imagined, time. Remember that the audience will have a reasonably high level of understanding of the topic and you should present your paper as to an expert audience. In preparing for your presentation, consider what is the most novel part of your paper and concentrate upon that.
