The following audio/visual equipment will be provided by Local Organizing Team of ND2019 in all technical session rooms at no charge to the presenters:

  • A standard Windows system Laptop will be provided in every meeting room, please use it to give your presentation. The resolution on the laptop is set to 1024 x 768 standard resolution.
  • It is highly recommended that you save your presentation on a USB flash drive as an emergency back-up.
  • Wireless hand hold Microphone or desk Microphone
  • Laser Pointer
  • Standing Lectern

It is our recommendation that the speakers would arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the start of your session to communicate with your chairman about the process of your presentation. All sessions should start on time and all speakers should utilize the provided computer.

The following information is designed to help you prepare your visuals for a quality, professional presentation. Remember that LARGE AND LESS IS BETTER and all visuals MUST BE DEVOID OF CORPORATE NAMES/LOGOS (except for title slide) AND BRAND NAMES.

  • PowerPoint Slide Presentations
    • Prepare your PPT in the ratio of 4:3 (16:9 is available at Plenary session because LED can be Divi-Screen Displayed at 4:3 or 16:9 ratio)
    • Design slides that can be seen from the back row of the room
    • For the maximum effect, use 10 or fewer words on a slide
    • Avoid using more than six words per line or eight to 10 lines of type per visual
    • Use strong, bold san serif typefaces for reading ease. Don’t use all capitals; provide ample spacing between words and letters
    • Leave space at least the height of the capital letter between line
    • Lower case letters are more legible than capitals
    • Vary the size of type on your visual to illustrate relative importance of information
    • Contrast is important. In general, use dark colors for the background and light colors for text and graphics.
    • Limit each slide to one main idea
    • Graphs and charts should be simple
    • Include titles to supplement, not duplicate, slide data
    • Use duplicates if you need to refer to the same slide at different times in your presentations
    • Plan your slides for a good visual place in your presentation. Don’t leave a slide on the screen after discussing it.


Poster Presentations

  • Short Oral and Discussion

English is the official language of the congress. According to the availability of meeting room and depending on the final program, posters are expected to have five-minute oral talk by roughly a 4-to-6-page slide in the assigned sessions. Posters will be on display on the same half-day of the short oral presentation.

  • Poster Setup, Presentation and Removal Schedule

Posters need to be submitted to the local organizers upon registration on May 19, 2019. Authors must be available at their posters for protracted discussions during the break of the conference. Posters should be less than 95cm (width) × 130cm (length) in size and can be affixed to the panels using poster glue which will be available on the poster exhibition area.
