Information and Templates
for Speakers

  • Abstract Template
  • Symposium PowerPoint Slide Template: This template unifies the presentations throughout Symposium sessions. Presentations on Symposium slides are the ownership of the presenter but AARST retains the rights to publish all slides on the AARST website unless the presenter specifically withholds permission. Papers, once peer-reviewed, edited and accepted, become the property of AARST for publication in the AARST International Radon Symposium Proceedings.

  • SLIDES Templates. Templates are guides – color and design of templates may be changed, the footer must remain in place. The 2022 footer band color is dark green with white words. For more options in PowerPoint click on Design in the Dashboard Ribbon then click on Format Background. Footers may be removed from slides that are info-heavy, but must be in place on the front and end slides. Please refer to the non-commercialism policy for use of professional business logo. Tip: info heavy slides can be broken up into more slides. 2022 POWERPOINT TEMPLATE
