Presenters - Oral Presentations

How do I know which day I am scheduled to present my paper?

As soon as we have finalized the program, we will email your date and time. This will be by the end of February.

Can I specify a day/time that I would like my presentation to be scheduled?

Presentations will be grouped by theme so it will be difficult to shift the time of individual presentations.

How long should my presentation be?

Presentations can be up to ten-twelve minutes. Poster presentations can be up to five minutes.

Will I be presenting in a session with other people?

Yes. Each talk will be part of a themed session that will have anywhere from 3-5 presentations. Each session will be moderated by a member of the Queen's faculty. You are expected to be present for the entire session which should be about one hour in length

Do I need to send a copy of my presentation or poster before my talk?

Yes. We need you to send a copy of your presentation slides or poster to iatq@queensu.ca by Wednesday, March 4, 2021.  

What audio visual equipment will be available to me for my talk?

Conference sessions will be run using Zoom Webinar. A moderator will introduce you and you will share your screen presentation and then take questions from the online audience. Small groups of posters will be presented together followed by a live question and answer period. There will be practice sessions offered during the first week of March so you can familiarize yourself with the technology and meet us!

I would like to make changes to the abstract and/or title I sent to the conference, can I do that?

Yes, but any changes you make must be sent to iatq@queensu.ca by the end of February.

Presenters - Poster Presentations

I am presenting a poster at the conference - what size should my poster be?

Since the conference is virtual, you can develop your one-page poster in any program you wish and then save it as a PDF.

When am I expected to be at my poster and do I have to talk about it formally?

A time period for formal presentation of posters will be arranged. You will be able to participate live in the Q & A during your poster presentation time.  

Where and how long will the posters be displayed on the website?

All abstracts, posters, and full papers will be published within the I@Q conference proceedings journal.
