Slide content and design:

  • Material on slides must be of an adequate size to be seen clearly by all delegates
  • It is recommended that each slide contains no more than seven lines of text and no more than seven words per line
  • If showing graphs, tables or charts:
    Do not make them too crowded
    Complex figures should be broken up into series
    Limit the number of captions
    Use rounded figures
  • As a rough guide, we suggest you allow no more than two slides per minute of your talk
  • Slides are easier to read when there is a high contrast between the text and the background.
    Yellow or white text on a mid to dark blue background works particularly well. Avoid black text on a white background (eg photographs of typed pages).
