Presenter Guidelines

Oral Presentations

Contributed talks will be 15 minutes in length, with 5 minutes for discussion/questions. Invited talks are 25 minutes with 5 for questions.

We will have both a Mac and a Windows laptop at the podium. If you think a computer/OS mismatch might present problems, please export to PDF. If you have animations in your presentation, it is highly recommended that you test them on our laptops at the meeting (e.g., during a coffee or lunch break), because from past experience, these have a high failure rate.


Posterboards are 4x4 ft. Posters should be mounted between 8:00AM and 8:45AM on Wednesday, and must be removed before 1pm Friday. Poster spots will be numbered in alphabetical order and an index posted, so that you can see where to place your poster when you arrive.
