Presenter Guidelines

Thank you for presenting at the 2021 Australasian Menopause Society Congress!

We want to ensure your presentation runs smoothly.

The following guidelines and resources are designed to assist with your preparation and participation.

Should you have any queries regarding the information provided or your participation please contact

Onsite Presenters

The presentation computers use Windows and PowerPoint.

Prepare any slides using 16:9 presentation aspect (4:3 square aspect will not fill the venue screen).

Embed audio and video content, do not link to external files.

Upload your presentation at a minimum the day before your presentation if possible. Please also bring a backup copy on usb to the congress. Upload via the Presentation Slides Upload Box below.

Presentations should be named with the day, session and time of your presentation (Day_Session_Time)

If not able to preload your presentation, please bring it on a usb with you to the congress and upload it with the AV technician well in advance of your presentation (at the latest in the break prior to your session).

Go to your session room at least 15 minutes prior to the start time to meet the session chair and AV technician. Familiarise yourself with the room and audio-visual setup.

Sit at the front so you can move to the lectern after the Session Chair introduces you.

If you need assistance, ask your Session Chair. AV Technicians will troubleshoot any technical issues.

Please note that your presentation must not exceed the time allocated. Session Chairs will end your presentation if it runs over time.

Session Chairs will field questions following your presentation.


Please upload your PowerPoint Slides

Online Presenters

To pre-record your presentation, record your video using the software you feel most comfortable with.

If you have little experience recording videos, we suggest Zoom or Microsoft PowerPoint.

Keep your presentation recording to your allocated time slot. If you go over time this will reduce the time allocated for questions.

Recordings are to be provided to the Conference Managers in MP4 format.

If you have limited online presentation experience or are looking for some tips about how to take your online presentation to the next level, we encourage you to take a look at the Presenter Toolkit.


Recordings must be provided to Conference Design:

  • In MP4 format.
  • As a single file. Multiple files will not be accepted.
  • Submit via the Presentation Video Upload box below.
  • Files to be named: presenter name, day, session and time of your presentation (First. Last_Day_Session_Time).

If making changes, always ensure to upload the latest version. Each upload is stamped with date/time so we will only use the latest version uploaded to the system.


On the day of your presentation, please log in to the portal 30 minutes before your session. This will allow you to:

  • Familiarise yourself with your equipment and make sure everything is in good working order (i.e. microphone and camera working, plenty of battery if using a laptop, stable internet connection).
  • Review your online content (presentation video and handouts if supplied).
  • Familiarise yourself with the Live Q&A feed.
  • Connect with the other presenters in your session.
  • If you have any issues or queries, you can connect with the support team through the Control Room Chat or log a Live Support ticket.

Presenters should be logged in 30 minutes prior to the commencement of their session.

  • Presentations will commence at the nominated start time. There is no need for presenters to start or activate their talk, the AV technician will manage this.
  • Presentations must not exceed the time allocated.
  • Following your presentation there will be a live Q&A with audience members.
  • Attendees can type questions into the Live Q&A box at any time throughout the presentation.
  • Attendees will also be able to participate in a discussion forum throughout the presentation. The discussion forum should be used for general discussion, with questions for presenters asked via the Live Q&A feed.
  • Presentations and Live Q&A. There will be a timer counting down to the end of the presentation.
  • Delegates will be able to log back into the presentation to view the recording “on-demand”. Live Q&A and Discussion Forum content will also be available.
  • At the conclusion of the presentation, presenters can go back to the timeline and participate in the conference as usual.

Live support will be available throughout the conference opening hours and will include dedicated IT/AV support.

Should presenters require assistance at the time of the conference they should contact support by:

  • Control Room Chat: this chat feed is easily accessible via your presentation in the online conference portal. Queries will be quickly picked up by the support team
  • Live Support Hub: live support is immediately accessible via the icon at the top of the online conference portal. Users should log their query in the live support chat box and a team member will respond as quickly as possible.





Post-Conference Information

All live and pre-recorded presentations will be available to delegates after the event unless you advise otherwise. Any additional files authors choose to share will also be available to view during and after their presentation.

Access to the online platform is restricted to congress participants only and cannot be found by search engines.

If presentations are to be used or published in any other format or forum, your specific consent will be requested. Please ensure you have permission to use any images, music or content within your presentation. If you do not have copyright permission, your presentation will not be able to be used or published. Do not include any images copied from the internet. Getty Images and other image agencies crawl the internet looking for images that have been copied without the appropriate licenses.

The inclusion of your presentation in the portal or used in an alternative publication will not affect your ownership rights. Neither the conference committee nor Conference Design will acquire the ownership rights of your presentation.

During the registration process, delegates must acknowledge and agree to the virtual conference Terms & Conditions, which include strict rules around unauthorised photography and recording of conference material. While these measures can be taken, we cannot enforce this rule in an online environment. The assumption should be made that participants may indeed take unauthorised photographs, screenshots, audio or video recordings, therefore you may wish to adjust the content of your presentation accordingly.

Presentations in the portal are available only to view and cannot be downloaded.
