The ultimate goal of the oral presentation is to showcase novel findings and inspire further discussion of the topic with other researchers. Oral presentations are often accompanied by a digital display or other visual component (e.g. PowerPoint slides). This is often followed by a question-and-answer session. A moderator will be present to aid you in set-up, relaying questions, and ensure that events proceed in a timely manner. One can generally expect to present for 10-12 minutes with an additional 3-5 minutes for questions.
