Technical Program


Presenter Information

Talks:

  • Please plan your talk for 12 minutes with 2 minutes of questions. We have up to 7 concurrent sessions, and people will want to go from session to session, so it is important that we keep all sessions on time. 
  • Talks should be uploaded in the speaker ready room the day before your presentation, with the exception of Sunday talks which should be uploaded Sunday morning from 7:00am onwards. Sunday plenary speakers please bring your talk on a flash drive to the plenary session.
  • Talks should be saved as session number_Last name_time (e.g. 4_Droser_0800.ppt)
  • The speaker ready room is HUB 272. We are using university PC computers and are unable to upload any software; thus, all talks must be in Powerpoint. If you are unable to access Powerpoint please save your talk as a PDF. If you are concerned or unable to do this, please go to the speaker ready room well before your presentation and we will do our best to help you. All computers will have anti-virus software; if your flash drive has any viruses or malware you will not be able to upload your talk.

Posters:

  • Poster boards will be 90 inches (228cm) Width x 44 inches (112cm) Height - please ensure your poster fits within these measurements, but do not feel that it needs to fill the board.
  • Posters will be located in HUB 302 South. 
  • Boards will be numbered for each poster and we will provide push pins. 
  • Please have your poster up by 7:30am each morning and take it down at 6:00pm. 
  • We have planned for 2 long coffee breaks (30 minutes each in the morning and afternoon) and box lunches at the HUB each day so that everyone has ample time to view posters that will not conflict with any talks. We ask that poster presenters be at their poster during coffee/tea breaks and lunch, as well as from 5-6pm the evening of their presentation day if they are not attending a post-session panel.

Speaker name in bold indicates keynote status.
