Presentation Guidelines


IMPORTANT Note Regarding Oral and Data Blitz Presentation:

When preparing for the conference, presenting authors of oral and data blitz presentations can assume background knowledge on frontotemporal dementia and related conditions. In order to maximise use of time and dynamism of presentations, the committee recommends that broad introductory slides be avoided.


Oral Presentation

Invited presenters will have 15 minutes to make their presentations. 

Presenters selected by abstract will have 10 minutes to present.  

Following a presentation session, the entire panel of a session will have the opportunity to interact with the audience for 30 minutes to answer questions. 

It is important that you strictly adhere to the stipulated times to ensure that our program runs to time.

Please ensure your PowerPoint template is set to 16:9 ratio.


Data Blitz Presentation

Selected poster presenters will be given 3 minutes as an oral presentation to advertise their work and entice delegates to visit their poster presentation. 

This type of presentations will offer a fast-paced overview of some of the most exciting research presented at this year’s poster sessions. 
The goal of the Data Blitz presentation should NOT be to present complete data, but to advertise one’s work and to entice delegates to visit their poster presentation for further discussions. 
Given the strict time limitation for the Data Blitz, presenters should prepare NO MORE THAN THREE PowerPoint slides. Therefore, some presenters may either select one major result of their study or some may elect to introduce their study and methods only, and encourage others to visit their poster to discover and discuss the results. 

Please ensure your PowerPoint template is set to 16:9 ratio.


Poster presentation

  • Hard copy posters should be printed in “AO Portrait” (1,189mm high x 841mm wide OR 46.8 inches high x 33.1 inches wide)
  • Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors’ names. Ensure that they are the same as in the submitted abstract.
  • The text, illustrations, etc. should be bold enough to be read from a distance of 1-2 meters.
  • Your poster number and presentation day will be sent to you by email 3 weeks prior to the event. Please mount your poster on the board with the same number.
  • We kindly ask that you be at your poster to answer questions during the poster viewing times indicated in the conference program.
