Information for Presenters


We have allotted 20 minutes for each talk, so plan to speak for about 10-15 minutes, with a few minutes for questions at the end. All presentations will be in the Amphitheater. There will be a table by the speaker's podium with two laptops:

Please have your presentation on a USB stick and load it onto the appropriate laptop between 9-9:45 AM or, if you're speaking in the afternoon, during the lunch break (12:35-1:40 PM). Brad Spitzbart, Vinay Kashyap or Jennifer Posson-Brown will be on hand to assist you. We recommend naming your presentation file "lastname_keyword", e.g. possonbrown_acis.ppt .

All Calibration Review speakers have a Chandra's First Decade of Discovery poster space available for a poster version of their talk.


Posters should be put up after 1 PM in the Cityview Ballroom. Prior to the afternoon coffee break, there will be a poster haiku session. Poster presenters should prepare a 1 minute / 1 slide blurb. We will not have an overhead projector available, so your slide should be an electronic one (PDF, PowerPoint, Keynote), not a transparency.
