Oral Presentation Guidelines

Please follow the below guidelines for ICCG Conference 2024 oral presentations. If you have any further questions, please email iccg@theconferencecompany.com.


The program is available to view here. If you decide to withdraw your abstract, please advise us as soon as possible so that the program can be adjusted accordingly. 

PowerPoint Slides

Please create a PowerPoint presentation in a 16:9 ratio, as a visual aid to your oral presentation. Take this presentation on a USB still to the AV technicians in the room you are presenting in well before your scheduled presentation. The AV technician will copy your presentation onto the Conference computer, and the original will be returned to you. If your presentation contains digital video, please be sure to deliver your files to the technician several sessions ahead of your presentation in order to allow time for testing. 

Presentation Time

  • Abstract finalists - please prepare your 15 minute presentation to consist of 12 minutes presentation and 3 minutes for questions. 
  • Other speakers - please refer to the program for the length of your presentation and allow 3 minutes within your presentation for questions. 
  • Please take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with your session venue (details will be in the App and Handbook) and audio visual equipment before you are scheduled to speak.
  • Please be in your session room least 10 minutes prior to the start of the session to introduce yourself to the Session Chairs.
  • A central timing system will be used in the rooms. Please keep to the time, it will be visible on a digital countdown clock infront of you when you are speaking.

Slides for your Disclosure Statement

Please download the PowerPoint disclosure slides. These slides are required for all presentations. One of these slides needs to be included at the beginning of your presentation.
