ACSW 2018 Registration

All presenters will be required to register for ACSW 2018 and pay the appropriate registration fee. Presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.

Tips for preparing your presentation

Your presentation should be created and presented in PowerPoint. Each room will be equipped for the presentation of PowerPoint slides and include a data-projector, laptop, lectern and microphone.

Please ensure your presentation is brought to the conference on a USB Stick for uploading.  Embed any content such as audio or video – do not link to external files.

Find our ‘how to design a great PowerPoint presentation’ here.

We also suggest the following:

  • All text should be in PowerPoint, preferably in light text on a dark background.
  • PowerPoint should be in 16:9 aspect ratio.
  • There should be no more than 5 x 1 line bullet points per slide.
  • Optimum title text is 45 – 55 points and no smaller than 36 points.
  • Body text should be at least 26 points.
  • Avoid UPPERCASE letters as they are hard to read.
