Presenter Guidelines

Presenter Guidelines

Invited Talks and Short Talks

  • There will be a PC laptop and a MAC laptop available for presentations.  Please arrive 30' before the session to load and test your presentation, there will be an AV technician onsite to assist you.
  • Invited speakers: 25' is allocated for invited speaker presentations. This will be followed by several minutes for Q&A and speaker transition. PLEASE limit your presentation to the 25' this will insure lively discussion and fairness to other speakers in your session. See final program for details on your day/time of your scheduled talk. 
  • The number and length (typically 10') of Short Talks will be determined after the abstracts are reviewed.

Poster Highlight Talks

These are 'flash-style talks'. Each will be 120-seconds (or two minutes in length). There will not be Q&A after each presentation (that is what your poster is for!).  Presenters are advised to prepare a minimum number of slides (like one or two).

Poster Presenters

Boards are landscape-style, 6-ft wide x 4-ft tall. Posters should be no larger than 70 inches wide x 46 inches tall. A landscape-style poster works best!  Poster board number assignments are listed in the final program.  Plan to mount/display your poster on Thursday between 5 - 7 pm.  Remove your poster on Sunday after the 10 am Coffee Break.
