Notes on time control

  • The secret to a successful talk is to practice it over and over again. It is important that you control the times and the session adjusts to the marked duration. A collaborator will notify you when there are 10 and 5 minutes left.
  • It is important that you do not run out of time as the questions are one of the most crucial parts of the session. Try to leave time for this part in which, very sure, you will touch points of your talk. With this you will be able to enrich your talk and win over the public.
  • Better to go slowly and count less than wanting to cover everything and be a "Road Runner". Less is more.

Slide style and design

The recommendation of the organizing team is to maintain the graphic line of the event.
For them we put at your disposal the following template:

** The template will be available soon **

We also offer you some advice (perhaps a bit hackneyed) so that your talk is not affected by the circumstances and the content really shines:

  • Limit eight lines of text per slide (better to use two than one and not see or read anything).
  • Each line that has a maximum of 30 characters.
  • Use a size of 28 points or more, and be generous with the line spacing.
  • Use few words, but with a strong meaning, so they will be easy to read and will remain engraved in the audience.
  • The important thing is not the slides, but the speaker and everything you are going to contribute. Slides are a resource, they are not the talk!
  • If the content requires attention, due to its complexity, divide it into sections, use outlines, in this way you can expand, cut your presentation with certain topics that you consider to be relevant.
  • Avoid the use of CAPITAL LETTERS, they complicate reading, take up space and are not attractive to those who are listening to you. It is better that you bet on the use of bold or italics... but without abusing it. We also do not recommend underlining.
  • The projector has a 4:3 format, and will have an HDMI connection.

Format of the talks

The standard talks are the talks that we are used to seeing in other editions.
The speaker has 35 minutes, a maximum of 40, to explain and develop the topic of the talk.
A volunteer will show you two prompts, one when there are 10 minutes left and one when there are 5 minutes left.

Once the exhibition is over, we move on to question time, the speaker has 5 or 10 minutes to answer the questions raised by those attending the talk.
