PLENARY SPEAKERS & PANELISTS

Guidance for oral presenters in a General Session

Congratulations if your abstract was accepted for oral presentation at the conference. We will let you know in early May what day and time you are scheduled to do the presentation.

In the meantime, here are a few guidelines to help with your preparation:

  • Please be ready to submit your presentation 12 hours before you are scheduled to do the presentation.
  • Consider the value of your research/ practice. What does this mean for your audience? How does this relate to the IPCC Working Group II (adaptation) chapters?
  • The time limit for the oral presentation is 8 minutes plus 3 minutes for Q&A. This will be strictly enforced by impartial timekeepers and you will be cut off if you go over your time limit. Sorry, but there will be another speaker waiting for his/her turn. So please practice in advance and focus on delivering your key message succinctly in 8 minutes.

Guidance for poster presenters

Congratulations if your abstract was accepted for poster presentation at the conference. Posters will be presented during afternoon tea breaks from Tuesday to Thursday. We will let you know in early May what day and time you are scheduled to do the presentation.

In the meantime, here are a few guidelines to help with your preparation

Format for printing

All posters should conform to the following size, in order to be displayed on the poster boards.

Maximum size: A0 (841 mm x 1189 mm)

Format: portrait

Printing service

We are offering a poster printing service so that you do not need to travel with your poster to Cape Town. Please email your request to gavin@digitalexpress.co.za. Kindly note the printing will be for your own account at a cost of ZAR 250.00, excluding VAT.

 

Schedule

You will be informed of the date and time of your poster presentation in May.

Each poster must be presented by the pre-arranged presenter. That includes mounting the poster at the proper panel by 9hoo on the morning of the presentation and being present to present it at the scheduled time. If the poster is not displayed on time, it will be removed from the conference programme.

Please ensure that your poster adheres to the principles of Open Access

All presentations at the conference should adhere to the principles of Open Access.  This means acknowledging the source of any materials in your poster (data, photos or diagrams) not created by yourself.

Publication on the conference website

If you wish to have your poster on the conference website, please send a pdf file (minimum resolution: 300 dpi) with your abstract number to Ruwadzano.nhamoinesu@uct.ac.za

Guidelines for a good poster

Consider the value of your research/ practice. What does this research mean for your audience?  Indicate this clearly in your poster.

General poster guidelines can be found on the internet. Here is an example:

SUMMARIES OF ACCEPTED SESSIONS

We have received summaries for 135 sessions.

Session summaries (136) 18.5.2018

FORMATS OF THE SPECIAL SESSIONS

Adaptation Futures 2018 sessions are diverse and interesting and encourage audience participation.  Different format options include:

Themed presentations with interactive Q&A

Based on presentations, this session provides ample time for audience interaction through Q&A. The moderator may get the audience to come up with questions before the talk. After the presentations, the audience highlights issues that were not addressed.

Panel Debate

The panel debate is a live discussion about a specific topic amongst a selected group of panellists (typically 3-4 experts or practitioners in the field who share differing perspectives) in front of an audience. The debate can be preceded by short presentations by the panellists. The panel is typically facilitated by a “moderator” who guides the panel and the audience through the event. The panel shares facts, offers opinions and responds to audience questions either through questions curated by the moderator or taken from the audience directly.

Fireside chat

A fireside chat is an informal conversation between a moderator and the guest. Fireside chats help to put a speaker at ease and a good moderator will engage the audience in the conversation, so that, in addition to sharing knowledge, the speaker is responding to delegate questions.

Round Table

A round table session is held around a table where every participant has an equal right and opportunity to speak. The topic is chosen by the organiser and participants are invited to join in advance of the session. It is thus a closed session. The organisers facilitate the discussion and debate. The session will be held in an appropriate venue at the conference.

World Café

The World Café is a structured conversational process intended to facilitate open and intimate discussion, and link ideas within a larger group to access the “collective intelligence” in the room. A café ambience is created in order to facilitate conversation. Participants move between a series of tables where they continue the discussion in response to a set of questions, which are predetermined and focused on the specific goals of the World Café. Each table has a dedicated facilitator. As well as speaking and listening, individuals are encouraged to write or doodle on a paper or tablecloth so that when people change tables they can see what previous members have expressed in their own words and images.

Campfire session

Campfire sessions are set in a laid-back environment, simulating a campfire conversation. The facilitator introduces a topic and then drives the discussion but not content itself. The content is created by delegates discussing the issues. This format presents an excellent place for peer-to-peer learning and sharing by delegates. As a bonus, this is also an excellent opportunity for delegates to build new connections.
