2018 Annual Symposium Talk and Poster Information


Oral Presentation Information

Oral presentations in the regular and special sessions will be in 20 minute time slots. Please prepare your talk to be about 15 minutes in duration, which will allow 5 minutes for questions and discussion. You should create your talk in either PowerPoint or as a PDF. To avoid compatibility issues, we recommend that you avoid using fancy animation effects. You should be sure that your presentation is loaded onto the computer in your scheduled room well before the start of your session. We plan to have four parallel sessions. So that people can move among sessions to hear selected talks, we will ask the session chairs to make sure that all speakers keep on time and that each talk begins at its scheduled time. 

Poster Information

Your poster will be allocated to one of three afternoon poster sessions, each 1.5 hours in duration. You should make sure that your poster is up no later than lunch on the day of your session. Pins and poster boards will be provided. Information about the maximum dimensions of posters will be provided here soon. A cash bar will operate during each poster session.
