Presentation Guidelines

Oral presentations

Each speaker will have 20 minutes for their presentation.  Please try to allow about 5 minutes for a question period.  Session chairs will be instructed to interrupt presentations that are over time.  Please meet with the A/V technician during the break prior to your session to transfer your slides file (PPT, PDF, etc.) to the presentation computer, or to check the connectivity of your own computer.

Live posters

There will be two in-person poster sessions on Thursday (3pm to 5pm PST) and Friday (4:30pm to 6:30pm).  Authors are requested to be present for at least one of these sessions.  Your poster must fit within a 1.2 by 1.2 meter (4'x4') square area.  You may put your poster up anytime prior to the first poster session.  Please remove your posters after the end of the second session, prior to the close of the conference at 12:20pm Saturday.  Any posters remaining after the close of the conference will be disposed of.
