The BFS does not have a presentation template; feel free to use your own.
Avoid too much content on one slide
As a courtesy to the audience, you are asked to ensure clear presentation and accurate time-keeping by rehearsing your presentation beforehand and by using only as many slides as will reasonably fit into the time period (probably a maximum of one slide a minute).
Try not to read out your slides.
