Presentation Length

Presenters affiliated with an academic institution are invited to prepare a standard 20-minute presentation, which will be followed by a 10-minute discussion session.

Other presenters are invited to prepare a 15-minute presentation. 2-4 presentations will be given at a time followed by 15-30 minutes of discussion.

We are expecting standard 20-minute academic presentations from the following delegates: Kit Ashton, Liz Doherty & Shaun Ferns, Begona Echeverria, Michael Jacob, Lisa MacDonald, Emily McEwan, Reuben O Conluain, Olufunmilola Oladipo, Morgan Sleeper, and Cassie Smith-Christmas & Orlaith Ruiseal. If your name is not on this list but you think it should be (or it’s on the list but it shouldn’t be), please contact us asap.

Please note that we would like to be quite strict about presentation times as we have a full schedule. We have scheduled long breaks, meals together, and daily discussion sessions to ensure that you have the opportunity to expand on your presentation or to ask others’ about theirs.


There will be a laptop, projector, and screen available for presentations. To avoid technological challenges, we encourage you to ensure that your presentation is available via multiple means (e.g., on a flashdrive, in dropbox, via email attachment, etc.) and we encourage you to test the technology well in advance of your presentation to avoid delays.

If you wish to connect your own Mac laptop to the projector, please ensure that you have a suitable adaptor for a VGA connection.

Wifi will be available at the Gaelic College, but it isn’t always strong and reliable. Therefore, please do NOT assume that you will be able to link to a website or video online during your presentation. Instead, incorporate screenshots of websites and/or download videos you want to show. If you’re not certain how to do this, let us know and we’d be happy to help.
