Presentation Format

Papers presented at Words in the World International Conference 2020 will be presented as oral presentations.

All presentations will be a maximum of ten minutes in length (with an additional 5 minutes for questions).

We recommend preparing your presentation using PowerPoint (or pdf slides).  Slides will be presented via online screen sharing. Please use a 16:9 slide format (this can be set in the “Page Setup” section in PowerPoint, under the “File” menu).

If you have any concerns at all about the bandwidth or reliability of your internet connection, we strongly encourage you to also develop a “narrated” (voiceover) version of your presentation you can send to us in advance. Here are two links to Microsoft support for how to do this using PowerPoint:

We will be sending additional information in the near future with instructions on how you can upload your presentation in advance.
