Oral presentations


How long should the presentation be?

The presentation should be up to seven minutes long with three minutes for questions. There will be a strict cut-off with a one minute warning. The typical rule of thumb is a maximum of one slide per minute.

Does the whole team have to present?

No it is up to the team who speaks. We will not be judging on the number of speakers.

What media can be included in the presentation?

This is up to you. You could include a short video, have prototypes to show etc.


Presentations should be submitted to to scif-apuc@bristol.ac.uk. If the file is too large the university has a service which allows transfer of very large files called fluff and it is very easy to use. Any issues please get in touch with us!
