To keep our fast-paced oral sessions running smoothly, speakers will not connect their individual laptops to the projectors. All slides must be uploaded at least 24 hours in advance of the presentation.
They will then be downloaded by conference officials to the projection computer, provided by the conference, in the lecture hall.
Technical assistance will be available at all reasonable hours, especially during the run-up to each session.
Although Powerpoint will be provided on the projection computers, we highly recommend that you also upload a PDF version of your presentation; and that you have both the PowerPoint and the Acrobat versions of your files on a memory stick, and perhaps in the cloud or in your e-mail system as well. All this gives us more options in case of trouble.
Please submit and present only materials that are cleared for release — no classified documents (even at the "sensitive" or "for official use only" levels) or corporate-confidential materials.
Regular contributed oral presentations should be 12 minutes long, plus a 3 minute allowance for question and answer. The colleagues chairing the sessions will have to keep them running on time, and we thank our speakers in advance for their cooperation.
These time limits refer to regular contributed orals in parallel sessions. Plenary or otherwise featured speakers will be given special instructions individually.
Slides Will Be Available to Attendees
By default, we will make uploaded slides and posters available to registered attendees (not the general public) on an ongoing basis. If you wish to opt out, please write to us.
