Instructions for Presenters



Maximum size is approximately 3’×4’ (a size used commonly at many conferences and meetings).  We request posters to be printed/displayed in landscape view.


The standard presentation format will be PowerPoint slides submitted to the session chair prior to the session meeting.  We expect presenters will have their PowerPoint presentations available on their personal thumb-drive/memory-stick devices 15 minutes before the beginning of a session.


Each speaker will have 15 minutes for his or her presentation. There will be no exceptions to this rule. It is recommended that your presentation last approximately 12 minutes, so that there will be ample time for questions afterward. Your Section Chair or moderator will give you a signal as the end of your 12 minutes approaches. Please plan on being present when the session in which you are going to speak begins. Your Section Chair may have instructions that speakers need to hear. In addition, if you are going to be using special equipment, such as slide projectors, you should be at the meeting room 15 minutes before the start of your session to see that this equipment is working properly.
