2022 Presenter Instructions

The conference will be delivered virtually via the BPNA app. 

Oral presentations 

All oral presenters need to register for the conference.

Oral presentations will have 15 minutes each: 10 minutes for the presentation, with a further 5 minutes for discussion.  Chairing will be strict.   

All oral presentations will be recorded in advance and streamed at the scheduled time by the Chairs of the session. At the end of your presentation, the Chairs will take questions live from the audience.  The presenter will need to be available in the session to answer the questions live.

We will send you an email inviting you to record your presentation and with specific instructions.

Any queries regarding oral presentations should be sent to padmini.ramesh@bpna.org.uk


Poster presentations

All poster presenters need to register for the conference.

All posters will be available to view in the conference app. You are invited to prepare your poster in Powerpoint and also record an audio narrative to the poster (2-minutes max).  

There are two prizes for posters - one for the poster and one for audio narrative.

To prepare your poster

We would like people to be able to view and hear your poster.  Therefore we need you to upload BOTH a pdf, so people can zoom into the detail, AND an mp4 file, so people can hear your commentary.

  • Prepare your poster in Powerpoint, as a single slide, landscape orientation
  • Save
  • Export your file to pdf.  File > Export > File name [poster number]> File format pdf > Export
  • Add an audio narrative in Powerpoint.  Go to Insert > Audio > Record audio.  Save and check
  • Open your Powerpoint file and convert it to an mp4 file.   Go to File > Export > Save as a movie.  This will output an mp4 file 


Only mp4 files will play the audio narrative in the conference app.  Only pdf files are 'zoomable'.

To upload your posters:

  • Only the person who submitted the abstract can upload the poster (submitter).  If this is not the correct person please contact padmini.ramesh@bpna.org.uk
  • Submitter, you must have registered for the conference before the facility to upload the poster will be available
