Oral Presentations

All talks will be given from a shared computer to ensure a smooth and rapid transition between talks. Please send your talks to the LOC the night before, or the closest session break at the latest. If your talk includes specialized content that requires you to use your own laptop, please email the LOC in advance of your talk to allow us arrange testing of your system in advance of your talk. Powerpoint and PDF presentations will be supported.

Your allocated time slot for a talk includes 20 minutes for the presentation, and 5 minutes for questions. Please plan accordingly.

Poster Presentations

The poster boards can accommodate posters with the maximum dimensions of 46 inches tall by 37 inches wide. Posters will be exhibited for the duration of the conference in the main entrance hall, immediately outside of the auditorium where the conference is being held.
