If you are selected for an oral presentation, it is important to keep in mind that you will be presenting to a general audience, not specialists in your field. Therefore, your ideas should be presented using non-technical language. Ifyou use a PowerPoint, or other presentation software, your slides should contain more images, figures and othervisuals than textual content. The links below offer examples of how to prepare a talk like this, such as a TED talk.

A poster format is a great way to discuss your work using graphics and visual aids. View our Poster Printing Guidelines for information on how to create your poster. Posters should be designed to engage a general audience by minimizing technical terms. Test descriptions should be balanced with high quality figures, pictures, tables or schematics. Bullet points may convey the same message better than lengthy paragraphs, and a consistent font size is recommended.
