Presenter Guidelines

Oral Presentations

Invited Talks are allotted 25 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A and transition. Contributed Talks are allotted 12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for Q&A and transition.

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.


Poster pin-up boards are 4 ft (1.2 m) across and 3 ft (1 m) tall. For optimal poster presentation, your poster should fit within this space. Posters will be on display throughout the workshop. Posters can be mounted on Tuesday morning at 8AM and must be removed by noon on Thursday. After noon on Thursday posters will be discarded. Poster spots will be numbered in the program, please place your poster in the appropriately numbered location when you arrive.
