Guidelines for Speakers

  • Talks will run for around 20 minutes
  • There will be a warning (five fingers held up) by the organiser when you have 5 minutes to go.
  • If you have slides for your presentation, there is a projector and laptop. If you don't wish to use slides, that is fine also.
  • If your content contains anything that might disturb members of the audience, please give a brief content warning before your talk so the audience is fully aware.
  • Always be respectful in your talk, we won't tolerate any sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia or anything else that we consider offensive. Final discretion of what is deemed offensive is with the organisers.
  • When you speak, you can expect a respectful audience. Any disrespectful audience members will be asked to leave by the organisers.
