Presentation slideshows are encouraged. To ensure compatibility with conference technology, please prepare any slideshows using Microsoft PowerPoint. Please be prepared to e-mail or transfer your presentation when you arrive at the conference.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

All presenters will discuss their research with audience members and adjudicators during the poster session. Adjudicators will be evaluating a large number of presentations. Therefore, presenters should expect to discuss their posters for no more than five minutes.

To accommodate all presentations, posters must be no larger than 121 cm (48 inches) wide by 91 cm (36 inches) high. Larger posters will not be able to be accommodated due to the dimensions of available space.
