Speaker Guidelines

All presentations offered at ASIS International events are made with the understanding that there will be a complete explanation of material presented for each abstract submitted. During the presentation, there must be no refusal to respond to audience inquiries regarding item(s) under presentation.

An educational session is not an opportunity to promote or demonstrate company products or merchandise. No presentation shall contain merchandising material for a product or service, nor will promotional materials be distributed to attendees before or after the presentation.

ASIS International speakers receive a complimentary conference registration.

ASIS International does not pay per diem, honoraria, or expenses.

Individuals submitting an abstract for an ASIS International conference are doing so with the understanding that they agree to abide by these conditions, deadline policies, and decisions of the ASIS International program committee.

Presenters agree to allow ASIS to audiotape, videotape, and/or transcribe the presentation.

Speakers invited to make presentations at an ASIS International conference agree that:

  • All presentation must be held in English
  • All presentations will reflect the accepted abstract
  • Presentation slides must be received by deadline assigned to that conference
  • Visual aides used during the presentation need to be developed so that they can easily be viewed in a large room (no small font size and no long text on the slides).
  • Sessions may be recorded and transcribed.
  • Content and examples will be considerate of the cultural diversity of the audience.

To avoid disruptions to other sessions, speakers are expected to stay within their allocated time slots. The moderator will strictly adhere to the conference schedule.

Speakers are expected to arrive at the conference venue at least 30 minutes before their presentations. Should they request testing time, a technician will be available during the coffee and lunch breaks.
