Speakers can create their own Power Point presentation, based on their personality and personal tastes. We encourage you to make an original and fun presentation.

If you wish to do so, you can use the image of the congress in your slides. You can download it HERE.

The organisation has created a standard template for Power Point. You can download it HERE.

All Power Point slides used for oral presentations must be created in English.

Please ensure that your Power Point presentation is converted to a PC ready format, particularly if you are using an Apple computer/notebook.

Please provide your PowerPoint presentation onsite using a USB or CD Rom in the Speaker Preparation Room (you can see the location of the room on the map below).

  • Oral Presentations on September 7th - They must present their power point slides on September 6th in the Speakers Preparation Room.
  • Oral Presentations on September 8th - They must present their power point slides on September 7th in the Speakers Preparation Room.
  • Oral Presentations on September 9th - They must present their power point slides on September 8th in the Speakers Preparation Room.

Please take note that audiovisual technicians will not collect the presentation slides out of this schedule

Organizing Committee begs you to stick to the schedule indicated in order to avoid unexpected situations. You should take into consideration that there are more than 9 simultaneous speakers in different rooms, so it is necessary for us to be well organized.

Please note that the official Congress language is English. All presentations must be made in English.

If your presentation has been authorized to be delivered in Spanish, you should not forget that you should design your slides in English. Remember that only Manuel de Falla and Garcia Lorca rooms have translation equipment’s, so your oral presentation must be located in one of these two rooms.

Please check the Congress Program to confirm the type of presentation has been assigned to you:

  • If you are participating in a round table, you have 15 minutes for oral presentation.
  • If you are participating in a short lecture, you have 15 minutes for oral presentation.
  • If you are participating in a plenary lecture or a symposium, you have 20 minutes for oral presentation.
  • If you are participating in the session of oral communications, you have 8 minutes for oral presentation.
  • If you are participating in a workshop, you must agree with the other speakers the oral presentation times for each one.
The time for oral presentations has been established in order to give time for a scientific debate among people who attend your lecture. Accordingly, the chair has instructions to open a scientific debate with you and the public just after the talks. We would like to give you time enough to enjoy the "question and answer" between you and the audience.

In the interest of fellow speakers, please ensure that you keep your allotted time frame:

The speakers must adjust their talks to the established timings for oral presentations.

The organisation committee will like to inform you that the time allocated to each speaker will be strictly followed by the chair of the session and speakers will be interrupted as soon as the time is over.

Take note that microphones will be switched off when time is up, therefore speakers will not be able to continue with their presentation once their time is over

The chair will time your presentation and provide you with a warning at 3 minutes remaining and when time is up. As organisers we hope speakers follow these strict timing rules and understand, as a matter of respect to other speakers and the audience, they must adjust to their given times.

We recommend you to practise your presentation in advance to ensure it fits within the allotted time.

Should one of the presenters in your session not be present, please keep to the program running order. The same policy applies if the session should finish earlier than expected. This will allow participants to move between sessions to attend other presentations at their scheduled times

The organisation kindly requests you to be in the room where you will be speaking at least 10 minutes before it starts.

The moderator will be in this room, along with a person chosen by the organisation who will be there to welcome you and assist you should you needed anything.

Both members of the congress will have visual accreditation labelled as: Chair and Organising Committee.

We inform that speakers are not allowed to advertise in the slides or during the oral presentation, in particular:

  • Trademarks
  • Companies of the food sector
  • Apps, websites or working methods where the speaker has a financial interest
If you are a speaker and your attendance to the Congress has been sponsored by a company, you can mention the company, at the beginning or end of your oral presentation, in order to express your gratitude

SPEAKERS PREPARATION ROOM – Level 1 of the Granada Convention & Exhibition Centre
All speakers are asked to load/check their presentation the day before their session in order to ensure the presentation is checked and tested. You will be directed to the Speakers Preparation Room upon registration.

You will then be briefed on how to use the system when you meet with the audio visual technicians.

The Speaker Preparation Room is located on Level 1 of the Granada Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Invited speakers and oral presenters are asked to visit the Speaker Preparation Room well in advance of their session to upload their presentations and make any final changes if required.
