Speaker Information

Regular Sessions:

Each room is provided with a laptop connected to a projector, screens, an overhead projector for those wishing to use transparencies and a blackboard. These rooms seat anywhere from 40 to a 100 people. Speakers planning to use electronic media for their talks are urged to use a memory stick/flash drive to plug into the available laptop. Hooking and unhooking ones own laptop consumes precious time and will be counted against the time allotted to you.

Semi-Plenary Speakers:

Each room is provided with a laptop connected to a projector and a wireless microphone. All rooms for the semi-plenary sessions seat about 100 people. You should NOT count on an overhead projector or blackboard. Speakers  are urged to use a memory stick/flash drive to plug into the available laptop. Hooking and unhooking ones own laptop consumes precious time and will be counted against the time allotted to you.

Plenary Speakers:

The room seats 650 and comes equipped with a laptop connected to a projector and a wireless microphone. There will also be 3 volunteers with microphones in the audience to catch questions.

 

Poster Information

Submissions selected for a poster session will be located together in one room.

The Congress will provide each presenter in a poster session with an easel and a foam core support board (4 feet wide and 3 feet high; equivalently 1.3 meters wide and 1 meter high). The display material should fit within these dimensions and be lightweight. Thumbtacks or pushpins must suffice to affix the display material to the poster board.

Presenters will provide their own title-sign. Lettering should be about 2" high. Display materials should be legible from a distance of  5-6 feet. Each presenter will have a space approximately 6 feet square between each poster board.

Presenters must be available during the entire poster  session to answer questions and discuss their work.

Presenters are expected to remove their posted materials at the end of the session. Any material left after the session will be removed and discarded.
