No single structure will fit all presentations. The best resource you have on how to present your work will probably be your research advisor. Please keep in mind that more than one power point per minute of your presentation time normally exceeds the presentation time. Therefore we recommend a maximum of 8+2 slides per talk.
Some general advice
Please try to focus on the main aspects of your research work and illustrate these clearly.
Please do not exceed the maximum period of time for your presentation
Please do not try to deliver more information by speaking faster
Please do not overfill your slides as it may reduce the distinctness of your presentation
