Presenters are required to register and pay their fees for the congress as the presenting author is required to be present at the congress to do deliver their presentation. Please register for the conference immediately to confirm your participation. In order to be included on the congress programme, presenting authors are required to register by the 30th of June 2019 and will qualify for the early registration fee. Registration can be done online at https://saafost2019.org.za/events-registration/

Please visit the speaker preview room the day before your scheduled presentation where possible. We are aware that it is not always possible to upload your presentation the day before however we would appreciate it if you could load your presentation at least 2 hours prior to your presentation time.

No Key Note presentations will be accepted. Only MS PowerPoint from 2007 – 2016. If you have embedded videos in your presentation please also bring them separately so that if there is a problem the technician in the speaker preview room can assist with this.  If you have prepared your presentation on a Mac, please allow a bit of extra time to make sure it runs correctly on the congress systems.  In some cases you may be required to use your own Mac and should carry your converter cables and adaptors with you for this purpose. Please note that it is not ideal for speakers to use their own laptops. All PowerPoint presentations or videos must be in the 4:3 ratio format.

Please allow for question and answer time when preparing your presentation.

  • 5 mins for Q&A for a 30 / 40 min presentation
  • 3 mins for Q&A for a 15 / 20 min presentation

Speakers should report to the venue of their presentation at least 15 minutes before the start of the session to meet the session chairpersons and familiarise themselves with the audio-visual equipment and venue layout.

PLEASE NOTE: Session Chairs will be instructed to stop your presentation when you exceed your allocated time.

 If a presenter wishes to withdraw a presentation, please email Lethishah@turnersconferenes.co.za at your earliest convenience to avoid gaps in the congress programme.
