Speaker Guidelines

Presentation Template

Please use the following guidelines when producing your presentation.

  • All speaker presentations must be in Microsoft PowerPoint. No exceptions. It is the speaker’s responsibility to provide the presentation in this format.
  • Use only standard Windows system fonts in your presentation; non-standard fonts may not display correctly on our presentation computers. We recommend “Arial,” font size 16 whenever possible.
  • We also recommend that you test the display of your presentation on different computers prior to submission. Be sure your on-screen text is large enough for the audience to read from a distance.
  • Be aware that dark text is much easier to read on light backgrounds than on dark backgrounds. Attendees have commented that slides with dark backgrounds are very difficult to read from a distance.

Time Management

Presentation times

  • Keynotes: 35 minutes + 5 minute Q&A
  • Speakers: 20 minutes + 5 minute Q&A

Staying within your allotted time is critical. Attendees switch back and forth between the concurrent sessions and therefore it is critical to stay on the schedule. It is generally accepted that you should allow (3-5) minutes for questions from the audience as part of your presentation. The number of slides should be consistent with a presentation of this length.


Excess commercialism in your presentation will result in poor evaluations from attendees reflecting negatively on you, your company, and your products. We encourage company logo / affiliation information for the first and last slides only.

If your company’s corporate guidelines require logos on each page, this information must be very small in size and located at the bottom of the slides.

NOTE: Prior attendees have indicated that they do not favorably view presentations with repeated references to the presenter’s company or products. It is in your best interests to eliminate or minimize the use of logos or company identification on all middle slides. Presentations are reviewed by committee peers and excessive commercialism can result in the removal of the presentation from the conference agenda. Presentations given during the conference that are viewed by attendees as too commercial can result in not being invited to present at future conferences.
