How to share your slides or posters

The Australian Bioinformatics Network's SlideShare aims to help Australian bioinformatics and bioinformaticians get useful presentations out to the world. 

You can submit for consideration presentations that help connect people to

  • people
  • resources
  • opportunities

to increase the benefits Australian bioinformatics can deliver. Research presentations, conference posters, educational and tutorial information are all most welcome.

These slides can then be embedded into blog posts or other pages on this (or any other) site like this:

How to submit slides or posters for consideration?

Please help us by naming your presentation file "Title - Firstname Lastname.ext", e.g.,

  • The Anas platyrhynchos genome - Daffyd Duch.pptx

Please attach your presentation file (in one of the accepted formats) to an email which includes

  • a title
  • a description (< 3000 characters)
  • any keywords you would like to include

and send it to [email protected]

Can I restrict who sees SlideShare content?

SlideShare does allow presentations to be made somewhat private by means of an unlisted URL, or even a password. While neither of these options afford Fort Knox like security, please let us know if you would like one or both in your email submission.

Sharing a SlideCast

Slidecast is a presentation format from SlideShare that allows you to play any slide deck synchronized with an audio file.

You will need to send both the slides and the mp3 audio file that you want to accompany them to [email protected]

Slides and audio will need to be synchronized. We're figuring out how best to enable you to do this so be prepared for a few emails back and forth as we work things out.

Here is a nice Slidecast from Amy Green on the Slidecast creation process:
