In this document you can find the requirements regarding the content and format of your presentation and information regarding the submission and deadlines.

 Content
  • A nice warm-up to awaken the audience (not obligatory but desirable);
  • Introduction: necessary background for the audience;
  • Please explain terms that might not be known to everyone. If your presentation contains graphs and/or abbreviations, be sure to explain them;
  • Your research question and hypotheses;
  • Your methods: that you have used or that you are planning to use;
  • (Pilot) results + discussion/conclusion: If you do not have any results yet you can elaborate on what results you are expecting and what the relevance and/or implications of these results would be;
  • Finally: leave some room for questions. You do not have to explain everything in fine detail
Powerpoint Format
  • .ppt or .pptx format;
  • Add the logo of the institute that you are working at;
  • Should not contain too much text; try to minimize reading for the audience;
  • Should preferably not contain movies/sounds;
  •  If you do feel like it adds enough value to your presentation, make sure it works on multiple computers and let us know that you make use of a sound or movie clip (to prevent sound issues on the spot).

Do your best! We will award a prize for the best presentation!
