Presentation Guidelines

Poster Presentation Guidelines

All presenters are required to attend the poster session that will take place on a date to be announced. Posters should be no larger than 48” x 48” in size. Abstract title, author names, affiliations should appear on the top of the poster. A simple font is recommended and lettering for the title should be at least one inch tall. The authors’ names and affiliations may be somewhat smaller. Do not prepare a poster as if it were a manuscript. Limit text and use primarily tables and figures to communicate your work. Lettering for text and illustrations should range between 6 mm and 12 mm. A numbered board space will be assigned to each presenter and pushpins will be provided to attach the poster to the board. We ask that all presenters display their poster by 9:00 am on October 1 and leave it posted until the end of the day on October 2. The poster room will be dismantled at 5:00 pm on October 2.

Oral Presentation Guidelines

All oral presenters are required to submit a manuscript to be published in the conference proceedings. Oral presentations will be 15-20 minutes in length, depending on the number of abstracts submitted. Authors are encouraged to allow for 3-5 minutes for questions at the end of their presentations. Presentations should be provided in Microsoft Powerpoint format (.ppt or .pptx).
