Presentation types

Oral presentation

An oral presentation consists of a brief presentation and question and answer time. Presentation slides are mandatory. Video clips, props and graphs are encouraged but not compulsory. A paper submission is required to deliver an oral presentation.

Poster presentation

A poster presentation consists of visual information (photos, graphics, text, references tables and figures) that will be displayed on the virtual platform. Posters should include a summary of key findings (whether from research, investigations, studies or project work) and recommendations for future research or projects. A paper is not required for a poster presentation though a paid registration from the presenting author is still required.
