3D CIC Speaker FAQ
It’s evident to us that Model-Based Enterprise implementers are eager for industry experience and collaboration that can enable their digital transformations. For 16 years, 3D CIC has been a gathering place for industry practitioners to network and learn.
Action Engineering is planning to host 3D CIC as scheduled in October. However, we are already looking at what-if scenarios should the ongoing global crisis affect the in-person 3D CIC experience. We plan to host 3D CIC virtually if the in-person event must be cancelled. We will make a live vs. virtual decision at a later date.
Thank you for committing to speak at the 2020 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress! We are excited to hear about your experience and expertise in alignment with the 2020 theme: Trust Digital. We look forward to many clever and engaging presentation topics.

How long are the presentations?
Unless we have discussed other arrangements with you, most presentations are scheduled for 30 minutes. There will be countdown cards displayed from the Action Engineering table to let you know when there are 10, 5, 2, and 0 minutes remaining in your scheduled 30-minute slot. At the end of your presentation, Jennifer Herron from Action Engineering will join you on stage to moderate 5 minutes of audience questions.
What are the presentation guidelines?
- Layout: Prepare your presentation in widescreen format (16:9). Please avoid using the standard ratio (4:3).
- Text: All text should be 24 point or larger font to ensure clear readability.
- Format: Microsoft PowerPoint is strongly encouraged.
- Graphics: You are free to use your own PowerPoint template. We do not have a prescribed 3D CIC slide design template, though you may use this template if desired.
- Video & Audio: Please let us know in advance if your presentation includes video and/or audio. We will advise our on-site tech support to ensure that video and audio play correctly.
All presentations – draft, final, or revisions – can be uploaded to this shared folder. Please use the naming structure ‘LastName-CompanyName-Date’.
When should I be prepared to go on stage?
Please come to the Action Engineering table near the stage approximately 15 minutes before your scheduled speaking time. This allows enough time to get your mic ready and helps the event continue flowing if our scheduled times need to be adjusted.
How should I prepare for audience questions and polling?
Please submit a poll question to Action Engineering when you upload your presentation. This can be a multiple choice, open text, word cloud, or rating poll. Examples are shown in the brief video to the right.
Audience members can submit questions through the event app during your presentation. Action Engineering will moderate displaying and asking these questions after your presentation concludes. You don’t need to worry about the tech side of this – Action Engineering will handle all of it!
You’re welcome to integrate polls or questions throughout your presentation as well! This creates strong audience engagement and has led to some of our best sessions in previous years. Email us so we can have everything set up for you!
Where can I download the 3D CIC event app?
