To prevent a queue at Monday morning, please pre-register at The Grieg Hall Sunday afternoon, if possible.

This is the first and final reminder that we need your one power point slide to be submitted to SEAFACTS by Friday the 6th June.  After this date we will not forward them to poster session speakers to include in their review of your poster. ~ Get a copy of the slide layout  
If you already have submitted your slide and had a message of reception, DO NOTHING


The conference schedule with your oral presentation time will be placed on the web site on Monday the 9th June. Please note that you will have a 15 minute time slot, 12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for questions. The theme session leaders have been requested to keep you to a strict time table and end the presentation after 15 minutes.

In presenting your talk, remember that many people do not have English as a first language so speak clearly and slowly. Also remember to make the writing and message on your slides large and clear, as it is a large venue.

You are also required to submit and preview your presentation the day before. For those presenting on Monday the venue will be available from 18:00 to 20:00 hrs Sunday.

If you have special requirements outside a normal Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, it is imperative that you have made a test run through your presentation in the preview room with the technical staff the day before you presentation. Last moment sticks will NOT be accepted at SEAFACTS.
