Presentation Enhancement Recommendations

Slide Template – Please use your own template, no standard slide template is required.

Slide/PowerPoint Presentation – 16:9 widescreen format is required for all presentations.

● The first slide should provide a conflict of interest statement for all presenters.
● The second slide should provide the title of your Session along with a list of all presenters with their affiliations.
● Use easy-to-read fonts such as Arial and Times New Roman.
● Use a font size of 20 or bigger.
● Keep text to a minimum (6-8 lines per slide, no more than 30 words per slide).
● Write in sentence fragments using key words.
● Avoid unusual colors and busy backgrounds.
● Limit the use of animations, builds, or effects.
● Avoid embedded videos in your PowerPoint presentation.
● Avoid sound effects and background music.
● Remember to proofread the slides, and to rehearse your slide presentations including a focus on length of time for delivery.
● Presenter contact information should be included on the last slide, so that attendees may reach you should they have additional question.

Zoom Background – We recommend that you choose a Zoom template for your background. To change your background, you will need to:

● Log in to Zoom.
● Click on the Up Arrow next to the camera in the bottom left corner.
● Select Virtual Background
● Add/Choose background

Lighting/Camera — Diffused light in front of you will usually work best to avoid shadows. Try to position your camera so that it just above your eye level. If you will be on camera – check the visible background – use of a zoom background may be helpful. Click on “Start Video” or “Stop Video” to turn your camera on or off.

Sound/Audio — We recommend using a headset and/or microphone as it will lead to better sound quality than using your computer audio. Turn off all sound notifications on all your devices.

Internet/Bandwidth — It is recommended to use hardwired internet, using an ethernet cable to connect. This helps reduce the variability of wi-fi strength.

Other applications/Sharing Screen — For live presentations, close other applications on your computer so that notifications do not appear during your presentation, and have ready any files you wish to share. You are recommended to share the specific PowerPoint and not your desktop.

Presentation/Clothing – Darker color shirts/blouses appear better on camera. Try to avoid busy plaid or patterned outfits.

How-To Zoom Demo Session — The 48th IPS Virtual Conference Secretariat will schedule a Zoom Demo for presenters 15 days before the event. Invitations will be sent to all presenters to participate if they are interested.
