  • If for some reason, you are not able to pre-record your oral presentation, please inform us by 22 April 2022 via email (apbc2022@gmail.com).

Presentation slide deck

Pre-recorded oral presentations would require a presentation slide deck, which can be prepared using your software of choice. We highly recommend PowerPoint or Keynote. Please keep in mind that many of the audience will be participating on their laptop PC or smartphones. Please try to make presentation slides easy to read on small screens. The following tips to ensure readability:

  1. Simple structure
  • Table of contents is nice to have
  • Single “take-home” message per slide
  • Do not use many animations (they may not work smoothly depending on the internet connection quality).
  • Avoid too many words in a single slide.
  1. Text
  • Recommended font-size: 18-24 pt
  • Avoid using light blue and yellow for text color
  • Try to keep sentence short
  • Use bullets
  1. Session slide aspect
  • Please create slides using the 16:9 aspect ratio.
