Presenters and Posters
We welcome presentations in all areas of mathematics in talk or
Presentations should last 20-25 minutes, allowing a few minutes for questions and discussion. Try not to get too detailed or fit too much in. Understanding the statement of a theorem can be difficult enough, let alone understanding the proof. Remember that your audience will be of a general mathematics background, and a lot of people may not know what you know.
A successful talk is one where the audience comes away knowing something they didn't before, having found what you had to say interesting.
The room booked will have a white board and projector for any digital slides. If you require any other special equipment for your talk, please let us know in advance and we will see what we can do.
Advice for poster presenters
Posters should be submitted by the Wednesday 12th September 2012. You can find the poster template below. You may display other visual aids along side your poster - please contact the organisers if you require any special equipment.
The poster session will take place during the afternoon tea/coffee break. During the poster presentations you are expected to further explain your work orally to any interested parties. We ask that presenters stand near to their poster during the evening so that they can field questions and explain things in more detail. Presenters may set up their posters during registration.
Much of the advice for speakers holds for those presenting a poster. In particular, presenters should use a font of at least 24 points to make the posters readable at a distance of 1.5m and consider using both textual and visual means of presentation in their posters.
There are four different poster templates to choose from. Please use the links below:
