GUIDELINES FOR SPEAKERS
The following guidelines are to be adhered to please:
If you use Power Point slides, your opening slide must show the agreed title of the presentation. This will be printed in the formal programme. Your name and your company’s name as well as your designation. We will supply you with a template to populate. No company name on other slides please. Please ensure you keep with the standard PAMRO template supplied
The font size must be large enough (preferably not smaller than 28) so that people in the back row of a sizable room will still be able to read it
Commercial presentations are not allowed in the main body of the programme but commercial breakfast sessions are available on a first come first served basis. These are a very good opportunity and you will be allocated an hour for your sales pitch. The breakfasts will be on Tuesday and Wednesday morning of the conference
Speakers must stay within the allowed time, 20 minutes per presentation. There are many papers to get through and Session chairs will control the time that is taken per paper as we need to keep to the schedule
To ensure the smooth running of the conference, all presentations will be loaded on one laptop . Papers must be sent to PAMRO at pamro@pamro.org not less than ten (10) days prior to the conference so that this can be done. We have experienced problems in the past with late admissions. Please make sure your paper is complete and ready to send to us by 10th August 2016.
If you have a technical reason why your presentation must be done using your own computer, please advise PAMRO ASAP.
Please bring a back-up copy on a memory stick.
Please note that all speakers are expected to pay the normal conference fee as well as their travel, accommodation and other expenses.
