Information for presenters:

  • Highlighted talks - Will be 25 minutes long + 5 minutes for questions and comments.  Speakers are asked to take the final 2 to 3 minutes of highlighted talks to discuss future prospects and areas for study related to their talk.  Speakers of highlighted talks are also asked to provide up to 10 of their slides - including their future prospects slides - in a printed format for display and further discussion during the poster session.  (Ballroom B)

  • Contributed talks - Will be 17 minutes long + 3 minutes for questions and comments.  (Ballroom B)

  • Posters - Will be presented in two formal, 2-hour long sessions with approximately 25 posters in each session.   Poster boards will be in landspace orientation - 60” wide x 40” tall (152 cm x 101 cm). (Governor’s Room)

Speakers are encouraged to use the computer provided by the organizers for talks.  That computer will have versions of PowerPoint, Keynote, OpenOffice, and Adobe Acrobat available.  However, you may use you own computers for presentations. 

Poster presenters will be asked to put their posters up for display by the end of the first morning session each day.  Workshop participants are encouraged to view posters throughout the entire day.

Speakers and poster presenters are asked to provide an electronic copy of their talks to the organizers (preferrably in PDF format) at the Workshop.  These will be posted on the workshop website and linked to each presentation as a digital record of the workshop.
