Oral Presentations

Speaker Ready Room (HTC #3) Hours
Wednesday, 11 March5–9 p.m.
Thursday, 12 March7:30 a.m.–5 p.m.
Friday, 13 March7:30 a.m.–5 p.m.

Oral presentations will be given in the Hilton. Session chairs are required to keep the schedule of papers in their sessions on time; presentations should be given at their designated times, even if another paper has been retracted.

Each speaker will have 20 minutes to deliver the presentation: 15 minutes for the presentation, and 5 minutes for discussion. A digital projector, screen, and laptop computer will be provided in each oral session room. Personal laptops may not be used, nor will slide projectors or overhead projectors be available.

Authors should bring their presentations in PowerPoint format to the Speaker Ready Room (HTC #3 in the Hilton) on a CD-ROM or USB flash drive. A meeting assistant will add the presentation to the session queue. It’s a good idea to bring multiple copies of the presentation on different media to make sure your file is compatible with the AV system. Preview any animations or embedded movies in the Speaker Ready Room. Deliver your presentation to the Speaker Ready Room at least six hours prior to the beginning of your session (not your scheduled presentation time).

Poster Sessions

Poster presenters will have one 4' × 8' landscape board for mounting presentations. Bring supplies to attach the poster to the board. You may wish to bring Velcro mounting tabs for this purpose. Poster sessions generally last for a half-day. Presenters should have their posters on display at the beginning of the session (8:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.), and plan to be present with the poster for at least two hours (9–11 a.m. or 1:30-3:30 p.m.). Please plan to leave a note on your poster indicating the times you will be present if they deviate from these standards.
