Oral Presentations and Poster Guidelines

Oral presentations

Contributed oral presentations have been allotted 15 minutes each, 12-13 mins with 2-3 mins for questions. These limits will be strictly enforced by moderators to keep sessions on time and to be sure that participants can view scheduled presentations at the appointed time.  

The conference will be using PCs with Windows operating systems running the latest Microsoft Powerpoint for oral presentations. As such, presentations should be in PPTX format or PDF if using Adobe. If you have created your presentation using a Mac version of PPT or other software, please make sure it is compatible with the systems we will be using as there will not be any use of personal computers allowed. 


Poster Presentations

The poster session will be on the evening of June 20, 2018.

Posters should be NO LARGER than 36” (91.44 cm) wide and 48” (121.92 cm) tall.

Posters can be displayed starting 8:00 am June 20th, and must be up by 1:30 pm that day.
