AESOT Fall Virtual Meetings 2020 Rapid Fire Guidelines

**For platform presentations lasting >=10 minutes, please follow standard SOT guidelines.

Rapid fire presentation is a new format for AESOT. As you prepare your Rapid Fire (5 minute) presentation, please observe the following guidelines for the meeting. Please focus on the essence of your research and eliminate unnecessary background information and lengthy discussion. Your presentation should be an abstract in PowerPoint form. Please do not read your slides. Please include the following for presentations:

  1. Title & Disclosure Slide. Include your title and co-authors. Avoid thanking your co-authors. At the bottom of your title slide, please also include this information:
    • State any conflicts of interest
    • Include a brief mention of funding
  2. Immediately proceed to the Purpose/Hypothesis. Use pictures/diagrams for background information. State the hypothesis that was tested.
  3. Materials and Methods. Present enough information that tells the audience that your research is sound, that your methods are valid, and that you employed appropriate statistics when applicable.
  4. Results: Focus on the results that pertain to your purpose, hypothesis, and support your conclusion (on the next slide). Let us know the statistical significance of your most important findings. Give us the "meat" of your findings. Do not show every result.
  5. Conclusion: Tell us the toxicology significance of your research and summarize what your research taught us. What are the two or three ‘take home messages’? Simply state why your research is important. If there is previous literature that is supported by yours or that yours disproves, then please let us know that as well.

Your presentation should not be more than 3-5 slides. You will be strictly held to the 5-minute time slots. All questions from the audience will occur after all Rapid Fire presentations.

Irrespective of how complex your research, you can do this in the allotted time. You will appreciate it and the audience will appreciate it. At most, the audience will take away 2 or 3 points from your presentation. This format allows a lot of good research with maximum educational value to be included in this year's scientific program. Moreover, it means less work for you. Take out slides or combine slides to give us only the essence of your research in this presentation.

Submission of Slides Prior to MeetingYour Rapid Fire Powerpoint Presentation must be sent to Vamsi Kodali (ywu0@cdc.gov) 2 days prior to the virtual session. Your slide deck will be uploaded along with all other Rapid-Fire presentations to ensure a quick switch between presenters. All you need to do is say ‘Next Slide’ to advance your presentation. The moderator or AESOT person will advance the slides for you.

Thank you and please be in the room at the beginning of the session you are presenting.

Best Practices and Tips for Success:

  1. Think of your rapid-fire presentation as a monologue with specifically timed visuals. Meaning, that you should not ‘wing’ each slide, 15-20 seconds goes by VERY quickly.
  2. Don’t try to accomplish too much.
  3. Keep your visuals very very simple! No more than 8 words on a slide, or 1-2 images. The audience already has a lot to take in. Don’t overwhelm them.
  4. Practice and Memorize your talk. Rehearse it until you can’t stand it anymore.
  5. Practice with the proper timings set on your laptop. Many speakers freak out about the speed on stage because the slides go faster than they expected.
