EMIM 2020 Presentation Guidelines

ORAL Presentations



Disclosure - MANDATORY for all presentations, even if you have nothing relevant to declare. Every presentation has to begin with the speaker making a disclosure of relevant financial interests or relationships. This disclosure must be done both via a slide and orally.

Prepare your slides with a format of 16:9

Ensure to keep the time.

Maximum of two slides per minute are recommended



IMPORTANT NOTICE The use of PowerPoint 2019 or for Office 365 for your recording is highly recommended as it is MUCH MORE convenient and professional than older versions. Maybe you could borrow your colleague’s or friend’s computer for your final recording – after you have practised your presentation with your older version to ultimate perfection ;-)

To see the speaker while she/he is speaking cannot be underestimated -
it enhances the exposure and recognition of you and your work!

Try everything possible to make this work. It is not mandatory to use the "PowerPoint Recording of Slide Show" option - you can also record your talk with zoom, panopto, camtasia or any other tool you have access to and feel comfortable with.
