At the conference

Organisational information

You’ll be presenting in panels of 4-5 people. Please come 10 minutes before the whole panel starts, we’ll help you set up your presentations and resolve technical issues if any arise.

After you finish your talk, do not leave the room. Stay at least until the next break so you don’t disturb the rest of the presenting panel. We recommend you to go have a look at your fellow PhD students on other panels, not only will it be beneficial for you, but your friends will appreciate your support.

If any issues arise

In each of the conference rooms, there will be at least one person who will be able to help you in case of technical difficulties.

Timekeeping

When the last 5 minutes of your talk start, you will be notified by a bell that it’s time to slowly wrap your talk up and move to the last 5 minutes that should be dedicated to discussion and answering questions from the audience. The second ring will signal the end of discussion and the next speaker will take over.

After the conference

Grab a coffee, chill, and compliment yourself on a job well done. :)
