Frequently asked questions

Can I submit a presentation and a poster?
Yes, you are welcome to submit to both streams.

Does my supervisor have to approve my poster or talk?
Yes, your principal supervisor should be aware of and approve what you are presenting.

Can I change my presentation after I submit it?
No. You must submit your final PowerPoint presentation by Monday 15 July.

Can I use my own template rather than the FedUni one for my Powerpoint Presentation?
No. You must use the FedUni template (downloads are on the conference website under 'Oral Presentation'). The front slide (title slide) must not be altered, it must include the Federation University Australia logo and your School. You can alter other slides of the template to fit graphics you may need for your presentation.

How long is my Oral Presentation talk?
The total time allocated for a presentation is 15 minutes.  Your talk must be a maximum of 10 minutes in length, which will leave time for audience participation of 5 minutes. The session chair will start a 10 minute timer when you commence your talk, then hold up a warning card at 2 minutes, 1 minute and 30 seconds.  Once the sound of the alarm goes the session chair will ask you to stop presenting (going overtime may affect your overall score and feedback).
