Presentation formats

The combined meeting of the Australian Shellfish Reef Restoration Network and the International Conference on Shellfish Restoration is pleased to accept presentation abstracts through the abstracts submission portal. The conference organisers have established a number of different formats to accommodate a range of different styles and talks, these include:

  • Oral Presentations (12 min oral presentations + 8 min question time). Standard format oral presentations given during plenary sessions. Emphasis on disseminating results from restoration projects, new research, industry collaborations, etc.;
  • Speed Talks (5 min speed talk + 5 min question time) Shorter format oral presentations  during plenary sessions with emphasis on project and/or research updates, upcoming projects, new ideas, etc.;
  • Technical Talks (12 min ‘how to’ technical talks + 8 min question time). This format is designed to be more interactive and will allow the speaker an opportunity to present a method or process that supports shellfish restoration (e.g. shoot a video in the field on your mobile phone, design a shell recycling program, engage community groups in monitoring);
  • Poster Presentations (A1 sized poster). Standard posters will be displayed throughout the duration of the conference. Note, presenters should be prepared to give a 2 min ‘marketing talk’ in the plenary sessions on why delegates should visit your poster;
  • Videos (5 mins max, to be played during break times). If you would like to show a video of your work or project, monitors showing these videos will be displayed at meal times and if time allows, these may also be shown during the plenary sessions.

All presentation types require an abstract to be submitted via the abstract submission portal (see below).
