Speaker Participation Terms

Speaker application deadline

Speaker applications must be submitted before 5 September 2021 by completing online form.

Evaluation of proposed presentations

Speaker applications are evaluated by the Forum’s program committee. Decisions are normally made within 5 business days after receiving applications. When considering proposals, numerous factors are taken into account e.g. relevance and informativeness of the presentation, its relevance to the themes of the Forum, etc

Presentation requirements

The working languages of the Forum are Russian and English. When preparing presentation materials, speakers can use either one or both languages. During the Forum, only one presentation file can be presented on the screens in PowerPoint (PPTX), Adobe Viewer (PDF) and Prezi (for online speakers) format.

Slides to be presented in Moscow must be submitted no later than 30 September as we require extra time to brief session moderators, interpreters and prepare Q&As.

Slides must be prepared in 16:9 aspect ratio, in PPT, PPTX, PDF or Prezi format (for online speakers) and submitted under Subject title: Slides for screen projection to slides@minexforum.com.
