Oral Presentations 

We welcome your submissions for oral presentations.

There is no strict deadline for submitting oral presentations - all that we ask is that you please send in your abstract as soon as possible after you have completed and submitted your online registration form

In constructing the oral component of the scientific programme we aim to put together the strongest schedule of presentations possible. 

But Mangosteen's meetings are different for a multitude of reasons - with communication always at the forefront - and we therefore also aim to do everything reasonably possible to accommodate the needs and wishes of everyone who would like to present work orally.  There will be no hand-picked invited speakers at this meeting - that's our policy - it's the interest of prospective participants that drive this meeting, and it is they that will be the speakers - so please, no matter how junior you might be, which country you work in or how diverse your interests, do not be discouraged from submitting an abstract and letting us know that you would like to take your place in the programme.


A Meeting With No Invited Speakers!? 

Yes, that's right - no invited speakers, no pre-determined programme.

Mangosteen's policy at this point in time is not to select and formally invite particular individual scientists to speak during our meetings - accordingly no one is invited, and there are only participants rather than speakers. 

Scientists themselves elect to participate in our meetings and those that want to present work in the form of an oral or poster presentation will be given every opportunity to do so. This non-traditional approach may seem a little unorthodox, and perhaps it is, but it works extremely effectively and makes for a wonderful atmosphere during the meeting.  The reason for this - quite possibly that everyone participating in our meetings does so because they themselves chose to be there, to get involved in the scientific discussion, and no one is at the meeting out of a sense of obligation to the organizer or for reasons of prestige.  It's all about communication!  It's all about the science!



Duration of Oral Presentations 

The exact time to be allotted for oral presentations will be announced in the weeks leading up to the start of the meeting.

All presenters will be allotted an equal amount of time to present their work.

As an early guideline, all presenters can expect to have a minimum of 20 minutes and a maximum of 40 minutes to speak. Audience questions will follow each talk a relaxed period of 5 to 10 minutes will be set aside for Q&A.
