Oral Presentation Instructions

Each oral presentation will be allotted a time slot of 15 minutes. These 15 minutes are subdivided as follows:

  • 12 minutes for the presentation (including the conclusion);
  • 3 minutes for questions and switching (changing presentation, announcement by chair, etc.).


In order to ensure that each speaker has equal time to present his/her paper, the session chairpersons will rigidly enforce the time allocated to your presentation.

The slides for oral presentation must be in English. In such cases, oral presentations may be in these languages, but we encourage the authors to adopt English as the main conference language as much as possible.

All computers provided in the Session Rooms will have Windows and Adobe Reader 10.0.1 available, as well as a projector and screen.

You are kindly asked to copy your presentation to your respective Session Rooms computer before the start of the session. Please, CILAMCE’s Organizer Committee kindly recommend to all presenters copy your presentations during coffee breakers just before the session. It is important to note that it is not allowed to use your own computer on the Session Room. You can present your work in English, Portuguese or Spanish, but we strongly recommend that presentation slides be written in English.

Please limit logos to first and last slide only and do not use product or company specific names unless absolutely necessary.
