Information for Presenters

Oral Presentations

All oral presenters must visit the speaker ready room before their scheduled presentation to ensure their PowerPoint of pdf file is properly configured and to upload it to the correct session folder on the meeting computers. All presentations are displayed as PowerPoint presentations in technical sessions, and presentations should be prepared using a 16:9 ratio. The Speaker Ready Room can also be used to check presentations prior to uploading files. We ask that oral presenters upload their presentation the night before for morning sessions, and at least 2 hours prior to the beginning of their session for afternoon sessions. Tuesday morning speakers should upload their talks by 7 a.m. on the same day.

Speaker Ready Room

The Speaker Ready Room is located in the Santa Rosa Room, and is available at the following times:

Monday, 11 May: 3–7 p.m.
Tuesday, 12 May: 6:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m.

Poster Presentations

PLEASE NOTE: Maximum poster size for this meeting is 6 by 4 feet (landscape orientation), and posters can be hung with push-pins. Posters will be located in the Fountain Ballroom adjacent to the exhibitors. Please check the Program for specific times and topics. Numbers on each poster display correspond to the poster booth numbers listed in the Program. Presenters are expected to have their posters up by 8:30 a.m. and they are expected to be present at their posters from 4-6 p.m. Presenters are expected to take down their posters at the end of the session. Any posters not taken down will be discarded.

Session Chair Orientations

Each Session Chair is requested to attend a 10 minute “Session Chairs Orientation” held in the San Pascual Room on the morning of the day on which your session is to take place. This meeting will include a review of session time management, AV procedures, and other information affecting the conduct of the day’s sessions. Session chairs are asked to strictly adhere to the technical program schedule and to limit speakers to their allotted time. If a speaker does not appear for an assigned time slot, session chairs should call a break or discussion period and begin the following presentation at its scheduled time. A student volunteer is assigned to each oral session. Session chairs are asked to meet with the assigned student volunteer before the start of the session. The volunteers are there to help the sessions run smoothly and to contact the AV Coordinator in the event of technical problems.

Technical Sessions

In addition to the following Theme Sessions, we are soliciting abstracts for general discipline sessions. For additional information, contact the Technical Session chair, Robinson Cecil,
