Information for presenters

All meeting rooms will have a data projector, PC (PowerPoint facilities), sound and internet.


  • Assemble in your session room at least 5 minutes before the session is due to start.
  • Ensure that you sit near the front of the room with easy access to the stage.
  • Ensure that you keep to the time allocated to you, as it will cause disruption to sessions if you run over your allotted time. The chairperson will have warning cards when you have 5mins/2mins remaining.

Please plan your presentation in a way to allow some questions within your presentation time. For individual presentations we recommend 20 minute presentation, then 10 minutes for questions.

We suggest that presenters end their presentations with a couple of questions in order to stimulate discussion after their presentation. Questions/ discussion should be after each paper and not at the end of the session.

BERA does not issue conference proceedings, so you don’t need to hand in a full paper. However if you are interested in having your paper published you can submit directly in our international peer reviewed journals;

You can also submit an article to Research Intelligence our Members Magazine. To submit email Please use the subject line ‘RI submission’.

You can also write for our blog, which has a readership of over 150,000 readers. Details of submitting for the blog is online:
