Presentations must be uploaded onto the central server at least two hours prior to the beginning of your session. Due to the tight schedule, please note that speakers will not be allowed to connect personal computers to the projector, and session chairs will not be able to load a presentation during oral sessions. If a talk is not uploaded in a timely manner, the Session Chair will have the option to replace it with a backup talk to ensure session continuity. At the conference, a "Pre-Loading Center"/Speaker Ready Room will be available for checking the content of your presentation and uploading it to the central server. Presentations may be uploaded from CD, DVD, or USB flash drive. Only Power Point presentations (.ppt/.pptx) and Adobe Acrobat files (.pdf) will be accepted, as the available software includes Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader. The presenter is responsible for knowing how to use the software for their file format; a speaker ready room will be available for practice. A computer, projector, laser pointer, slide advancer, and microphone will be available in each oral session room. Your uploaded presentation will be available from the central server in each session room. Audio Visual Technicians will be available to provide technical support.
Posters must fit on a 4 ft. high x 8 ft. wide (1.22 m high x 2.44 m wide) poster board (i.e. landscape orientation) Your poster should be displayed by 8:00am of the day you are scheduled. The poster presenter is expected to remain at the poster during the entire time allotted to the poster session. Each poster will be assigned a number, and must be mounted on the appropriately numbered board. (You can check the number by referring to the printed or on-line program once it is posted.) All posters will be displayable the entire week, allowing access for technical discussions throughout the week.
