Speaker Instructions

These guidelines will keep the event running smoothly and make your presentation more accessible to all participants, including those with colorblindness, low vision, who are Deaf/deaf or hard of hearing, and/or who are participating virtually. We strongly encourage you to follow these guidelines.

  • Upload early. 
    • If you are uploading anything other than PDF, please upload a partner PDF file. PDF tends to be more accessible to the community.
  • Stick to your time limit.
  • Allow time for questions!
  • Fonts. Make sure fonts are at least size 18 and that there is good contrast between text and background. Avoid all-caps text.
  • Colors. Avoid using color alone to convey information in plots, or check to make sure that colors in plots are distinguishable to those with colorblindness. A few tools that can help with this:
  • Alt-text. For electronic versions of presentations posted to Indico, make “alt-text” descriptions for images, which make their content accessible to people who use screen-reader technology.
