Presenters

If you have had a podium or poster presentation accepted for BORS 2021 please read this page for information on what to submit and when. Please make sure that you register for the meeting from the BORS 2021 page as you will not be able to join if you have not registered.


Podium Presenters

Podium Presenters have been allocated 7 minute timeslots, divided between a 5 minute presentation, and 2 minutes of Q&A. Please note that Chairs will be strict in enforcing time limits for presentations.

Please check the programme for details of your presentation time. Podium Presenters are asked to join their session 10 minutes ahead of their session start time to allow session Chairs to check all presenters have joined before beginning the session.

If you are concerned that you may have connectivity issues or have had trouble sharing your screen on Teams in the past we have provided an upload facility for video files to be used as a reserve during live presentations. If you opt to submit a video file please note that the video must be an MP4 file and must be less than 200 MB in size. The filename must begin with your abstract ID number. The deadline for submission is Thursday 9 September. Podium Presenters are expected to attend their session to respond to questions.

Share content in a meeting in Teams including sharing from a Mac (MS)

Podium Presentations will be held on Microsoft Teams and we recommend that you download and use the app version in preference to the browser version.


Poster Presenters

Poster Presenters should submit PDF and PNG versions of their poster.

We recommend that you design your PDF poster as A0 portrait and check that it can be easily viewed on the ‘fit to width’ view option in Adobe Reader. In practice this means that any text should not be smaller than 36 point, or 24 point for references and axis titles. Inkscape and PowerPoint are recommended for poster presentations as they allow you to export your poster as a PDF file at the correct paper size. PNG files should not be larger than 2048×2896 pixels.

Please check the programme for details of the poster break that your poster has been included in as we will arrange an opportunity for attendees to ask you questions during these in a wonder.me room. Posters Presenters may also submit a 3 minute video presentation which will be made available alongside their poster, for any attendees who are unable to see them during the scheduled poster breaks.

The submitted PDF and PNG files must be less than 10 MB in size. If you opt to submit a video please note that the video must be MP4 and must be less than 100 MB in size. All filenames must begin with your abstract ID number. The deadline for submission is Thursday 9 September.
