Thank you for presenting at the 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), of the Australian & New Zealand Burn Association (ANZBA).

Please check the online ASM program to re-confirm the day, time of your presentation. All sessions will be held in the William Magarey Room East rooms on Level 3 of the Riverbank Stand, Adelaide Oval.  Whilst we don’t anticipate any changes please check the program again prior to your session.

Below are some tips to assist you, most importantly please ensure you start and finish your presentation on time.

Before the Session

  • Please load your presentation files to the designated cloud or bring them to the ASM on a USB (embed any content such as audio or video – do not link to external files).
  • When you register at the venue you will be directed to the Speaker’s Preparation Room (SANFL Chairman’s Lounge). An AV technician will load your presentation on to a central computer if you haven’t already loaded it to the cloud.
  • The presentation computers use PowerPoint with Windows operating system. As a backup, we suggest you bring your laptop if you use a Mac or require a specific or uncommon program.
  • Abstracts will be available on the ASM Website.
  • The abstracts will also be available in the ASM App (We will be emailing download instructions to all delegates prior to the ASM).
  • Please go to the session room 15 minutes prior to the start time to meet the session chair (their name will be noted in the program), AV technician and familiarise yourself with the room and audio visual setup.


During the Session

  • Please be seated in the front row so that you can move to the lectern quickly at the end of the previous presentation.
  • There will be AV technicians available to trouble shoot any technical issues should they arise.
  • The length of your presentation is noted in the program. During your presentation, please keep a strict eye on the time. Your allocated session length includes time for questions.
  • At the end of your session the chair will ring a bell for you to conclude immediately. The chair will only ask a question if you have finished in time. At the conclusion of the session any remaining time will be used for questions and discussion.
  • We do not want to embarrass you however the session chairs have been instructed to end all presentations after the allocated time, even if you are not finished, in order to keep the program to time.


There are no facilities for photocopying at the venue. We suggest you bring a copy of your slides and any handouts with you (if desired).

Presentation Formats

Oral Presentations

Forum and ASM Oral Presentations will be allocated 8 minutes for their presentation plus 2 minutes for questions.

Impact Presentations

Forum and ASM Impact Presentations will be allocated 2 minutes for their presentation and are also invited to submit an ePoster.


To reduce the impact on the environment and cost to presenters, electronic posters will be displayed in the main area of the venue on large flat screens on a 1 minute rotation.  Delegates will be able to pause ePosters and skip to other using the index page.

ePosters will be displayed for the duration of the meeting.

ePosters will be a single PowerPoint slide and can include video and audio.  We can also include a PDF version of your ePoster in the ASM App and on the ASM Website.

Please click here for further details on ePoster submissions.

Presentation Files

Video and audio clips should be embedded in your Power Point slides rather than linking to external files.

Presenters will take their Power Point slides to the conference on a memory stick, where an audiovisual technician will load your presentation.

All slides will be run from a central presentation computer. However, if you have a complex presentation, which includes multiple media files, we suggest you bring your own laptop as a backup in case of difficulties loading your presentation.

Presenters Registration

All presenters will be required to register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee. Presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.

Audiovisual Equipment

Each lecture room will be equipped for the presentation of Power Point slides and include a data projector, computer (with external speakers), lectern and microphone. Other audiovisual aids, such as Overhead Projectors, are not available
