Information for Presenters

Greetings Presenters! Congratulations on being selected to present at the 2022 World Seagrass Conference on 8-9 August, 2022. This webpage will be updated regularly as new information becomes available that will help you plan your Talk, Lightning Talk, or Poster Presentation.

Each WSC session will be 90 minutes. These 90-minute sessions will accommodate six 15-minute Talks, or a combination of 15-minute Talks and 5-minute Lightning Talks. Each session will be different and is up to the discretion of the session conveners.

TALKS: If you were invited to present a Talk, we ask that you plan for a 11-12 minute presentation. The remaining time in the timeslot will be allocated to a brief Question & Answer period and then a transition to the next speaker.

LIGHTNING TALKS: If you were invited to present a Lightning Talk, we ask that you plan for a 4-minute presentation. The remaining time will be allocated to a brief Question & Answer period and then a transition to the next speaker.

ALL presenters will be asked to bring their presentations for download upon their arrival to the conference, or shortly thereafter. More details regarding when and where to submit your presentations will be provided in the weeks preceding the event. We also anticipate offering an online download option so that you can submit your talk in advance of travel.

PLEASE NOTE: The computers that will be used to project your presentations will be Macs. To avoid complications if your presentation was created on a PC, please plan to submit your presentation as an Adobe PDF file.

POSTERS: The Poster Session & Reception is scheduled for Tuesday evening, 9 August, from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM.

Posters should be no larger than 3ft x 4ft (.9m x 1.2m). Poster presenters should plan to be near their posters for the duration of the session to discuss their research and answer questions. Please be sure to include your contact information on your poster so that participants can contact you later for further discussion.

We are still working out the details of the Poster Session with the hotel, but will provide additional information as it becomes available.
