Presentation Development Guidelines

SEPG attendees consistently report in surveys that they want to hear about real-life examples. Any experiences that an organization has and is willing to share—both successes and failures—are of keen interest. What went right? What went wrong? What do you wish you could do differently? The program committee will give extra consideration to abstracts that are based on case histories and grounded in the real world.

Presentation Development Guidelines
If you are accepted to present at the conference, please read the following information carefully.

  • We expect the SEPG Asia-Pacific program to be very full, and it is important—for speakers as well as attendees—that the schedule be maintained. Due to time limitations of the program, we recommend limiting the number of slides to 25 or fewer for the 40-minute presentations and 50 or fewer for the conference’s 90-minute presentations.
  • Presentations must be submitted both as Adobe PDF files (one slide per page) and PowerPoint files.
  • If you chose to submit your presentation only in PowerPoint, it will be converted to PDF for inclusion in the conference proceedings. The SEPG Conference Series management team and the SEI are not responsible for any formatting errors that may occur due to conversion to PDF, so we strongly encourage you to submit your presentations as requested—in both PDF and PowerPoint—to avoid any potential difficulties.
  • Include your contact information and website on the final slide.
  • Number all slides.
  • Define each acronym the first time it is used in the presentation.
  • Present materials that reflect the abstract that you submitted.
  • Check your spelling and perform all final edits PRIOR to submitting your materials.
  • Use standard Windows fonts when preparing your presentation (these are the fonts that are pre-installed on your computer).
  • If incorporating animations, do not cover text.
