A key part of the conference is giving ACFs the chance to present their own work in a supportive environment. We are offering a range of presentation types depending on what stage your project is - from posters to elevator pitches of new ideas and oral prize presentations for the best work.

Oral presentations

Oral presentations - These will be grouped into themed parallel sessions or presented to the whole conference in the prize session for those considered the best by the abstract team. 

Presentation time: 10 minutes
Discussion time: 5 minutes
Total slot time: 15 minutes

Elevator pitch

Each elevator pitch presentation will last for 3 minutes plus 2 minutes for discussion (total 5 minute slot). The objective is to present the key aspects of the research or educational innovation (e.g. topic, key problem/issue, why research is interesting /important).

Each presenter will be allowed to use one powerpoint presentation slide to support their points. More guidance will be provided once your work has been accepted. 

Poster presentation

Poster boards will be displayed over the two days. Presenters are requested to stand by their posters during an allocated poster session for informal discussions.
