Guidelines for Flash Talks preparation

Flash talks will consist of a 5-minute oral presentation of  a clear and succinct overview of a research project, in a manner understandable to those outside your immediate field. 

  • Prepare your slides: You can use up to 3 slides, either in PowerPoint or PDF, as visual aids for your presentation.
  • Font Size: Please use at least 20-point font size so that audience members can easily read your slides.
  • Do not include large tables in your slides: Please summarize your key results rather than presenting large, dense tables.
  • Bullets: Please limit yourself to 3-4 bullets per slide and 10 or fewer words per bullet.
  • Try to avoid the use of acronyms, jargon, and abbreviations: These might make it difficult to comprehend a presentation.
  • Use graphics and pictures: These can be effective in capturing the audience’s attention and focusing them on the point you want to make.
  • Contact information slide: Prepare include a slide that you put up at the beginning with your presentation title, name, affiliation, and contact information.
  • Don’t forget to  proofread and spell check!
