Thank you for presenting at the 2018 Coast to Coast Conference – Meeting on the margin.

Please check the online conference program to re-confirm the day, time and room of your session. The program is subject to change so we suggest to check the program again prior to your session.

Below are some tips to assist you, most importantly please ensure you start and finish your presentation on time.

Before the Session

  • Please load your presentation files to the designated cloud or bring them to the conference on a USB (embed any content such as audion or video).
  • When you register at the venue you will be directed to the Speaker’s Preparation Room. An AV technician will load your presentation on to a central computer and network it to the appropriate room and session.
  • The presentation computers use PowerPoint with Windows operating system. As a backup, we suggest you bring your laptop if you use a Mac or require a specific or uncommon program.
  • Please ensure your PowerPoint presentations are in 16:9 aspect as 4:3 aspect (square) presentations will not fill the venues screens.
  • Abstracts are available on the Conference Website.
  • The abstracts will also be available in the Conference App (We will be emailing download instructions to all delegates prior to the conference).
  • PowerPoint presentations will be added to the website post conference – please notify Conference Design if you do wish for your slides to be published.
  • Please go to your session room 10 minutes prior to the start time to meet the session chair (their name will be noted in the program), AV technician and familiarise yourself with the room and audio visual setup.

 During the Session

  • Please be seated in the front row so that you can move to the lectern quickly at the end of the previous presentation.
  • There will be AV technicians roaming between the session rooms to trouble shoot any technical issues should they arise.
  • The length of your presentation is noted in the program. During your presentation, please keep a strict eye on the time. Your allocated session length includes time for questions.
    • Oral Presentations – 20 minutes in length including question time
    • Oral + Poster Presentations – 15 minutes in length including question time
  • At the end of your session the chair will ring a bell for you to conclude immediately. The chair will only ask a question if you have finished in time. At the conclusion of the session any remaining time will be used for questions and discussion.
  • We do not want to embarrass you however the session chairs have been instructed to end all presentations after the allocated time, even if you are not finished, in order to keep the program to time.

About the Association

The Australian Coastal Society (ACS) was initiated at the Coast to Coast Conference in Tasmania in 2004. The idea was floated as a means for those interested in coastal matters to communicate between conferences and where possible take resolutions of the conference to appropriate levels of government.

The idea was discussed further at the Coast to Coast Conference in Melbourne in 2006 and it was agreed that Bruce Thom develop a constitution of a company limited by guarantee that would operate on a national basis.

This plan was accomplished and in 2008 at the Coast to Coast Conference in Darwin the constitution was ratified and an Executive appointed. The company received charitable status in 2011.
