Speaker Centre

Welcome to the ISB2017 Speaker Centre

Thank you for your support of ISB2017. This online resource for participating speakers contains vital information you need to know in order to prepare for the Congress.

Please observe the key dates, ensuring all forms are completed by their corresponding deadlines.

We look forward to welcoming you in Brisbane in July.

  • All visitors should apply for a visa at least two months prior to their intended date of departure, and four months prior for people with character or health concerns. The Congress Secretariat holds no responsibility for visa applications.

    Failure to obtain the appropriate visa to travel to Australia does not constitute a refund. No refunds will be made after 9 June 2017 due to failure to secure a visa to Australia. The Congress Secretariat must be advised in writing of any alterations or transfers.

    Visa information can be found here.

  • Oral Presentation Guidelines

    • As a courtesy to other speakers in your session and to ensure the program runs to time, please keep your presentation to your allocated time. Your session chair will provide time alerts and direct the questions.
    • Speakers are requested to report to the speaker preparation room at least 3 hours before their scheduled presentation with their presentation on a USB to allow sufficient time to upload and check their audio-visual presentations with the technician.
    • Please note that the preferred screen ratio for PowerPoint presentations is 16:9
    • Please go to your allocated room 15 minutes before the session start time to meet with the Session Chair and familiarise yourself with the room and AV.

    AV Inclusions

    Posters Presentation Guidelines

    Posters should be no larger than portrait A0 (841 mm x 1189 mm). All posters must be in English.

    Your poster should include a title banner, listing the presentation title, and the authors’ names and their organisation(s) including a headshot so delegates may identify you. Text in the poster should be brief and clear and concise. The poster should be understandable without oral explanation.

    Handouts of your poster presentation are permissible.

    To ensure your poster has maximum impact, please consider the following formatting suggestions:

    • poster titles should be a minimum size of 45 pt
    • headings should be a minimum size of 30 pt
    • text should be a minimum size of 20 pt (readable from a distance of 2 metres)
    • avoid making the text all capitals as this makes it harder for the audience to read
    • avoid using a mixture of font styles
    • a matt finish on photographs reduces glare and provides better visibility
    • results should be displayed graphically, if possible, through the use of pictures, symbols and colour
    • figure legends are essential; however, these should be clear and concise
  • Biomech Connects
