General guideline for presentations
Respect for time constraints ensures that all presenters have a chance to speak equally, and there is time for audience questions or comments to be heard. Please respect your fellow presenters and audience by sticking to these limits.


Each presentation on both Panels and Round Tables sessions has been allocated a 20 minute speaking slot. There are three presentations per Panel/Round Table and a Chair has been nominated to introduce presenters, support the flow of the presentations and to facilitate questions and discussion after the presentations.

We ask that all presenters have respect for time constraints to ensure that all presenters have a chance to speak equally, and that there is time for audience questions and comments to be heard. Please try to be at your presentation 5-10mins prior to start in order to meet your Session Chair and each other. We would appreciate it if presenters keep the order of speaking as outlined in the programme as often Conference attendees wish to move between panels or tables and do so in line with the stated speaking order.

PowerPoint Presentations

Powerpoint facilities are only available for Panel presentations. Please bring your presentations on usb to the Information area at the Event centre prior to your panel for loading. Further information will be provided regarding the meeting point and will be posted on our website.
If you are on a Round Table and have visuals you wish to share please bring them on a laptop, ipad or in printed form to share with those at your table.

Conference Proceedings

The Conference committee will be developing Conference Proceedings. To enable ease of collation, those proceedings will include papers delivered to the Committee prior or during the Conference. We encourage presenters to prepare a full paper and email to for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings.

Language of Presentation

We welcome presentations in Indigenous languages. If you wish to do so please indicate in your confirmation to present so it may be added to your abstract. We would also need an indication of whether you are able to provide translation, either in writing or if there is someone travelling with you that may provide simultaneous translation.

Filming and Photography
There will be some official filming of Keynote sessions and also a Conference photographer. Please indicate when registering if you do not wish to be filmed or your photo to be taken. We will ensure those filming are respectful of your wishes.
