Symposium presentations and any additional material submitted will checked by the WNA for clarity and consistency, and in some cases may be subject to legal review to ensure anti-trust compliance. Presenters will be consulted if changes are necessary.
Please note that the World Nuclear Association will assume copyright to all presentations. Presentations will be made available to delegates online and speakers will be asked to consent to the distribution of video or audio recordings of their presentation.
Here are a few guidelines for your presentation:
On-Screen Computer Presentations
Presenters should prepare a computer presentation for on-screen display. This should preferably be submitted via email in Microsoft PowerPoint format no later than 16 August. You will be able to receive instruction on the use of AV equipment to give your presentation in the Symposium hall before your session begins on 12 or 13 September.
If you wish to include media other than PowerPoint presentations slides, for example video, this will need to be agreed with the WNA Symposium organizing committee prior to 16 August. If necessary WNA will provide FTP or other file-sharing details to allow very large files to be sent to us.
Preparing Computer Presentations
Speakers should ensure that presentation slides do not contain too much detail, use text that is too small or colours that make them difficult to read. Please bear in mind the importance of keeping slides as simple and as straightforward as possible. If the presentations submitted by selected speakers are not suitable they will be asked to revise them.
Graphics or photos should be correctly sized for the presentation slide. Using excessively high-resolution images does not improve on-screen appearance, but dramatically increases the file size. This causes a delay of several seconds before the figure appears on the screen. Please use graphics software to reduce the resolution (and the file size) before loading into PowerPoint.
To ensure the smooth running of the Symposium, the time allocated for your presentation must not be exceeded, and Session Chairmen will be asked to be strict in ensuring that speakers keep to their allotted time (typically 12-15 minutes). Adherence to the timetable is also important to allow adequate time for questions and discussion.
