Speaker Guidelines

Prepare your slides and transfer to your own USB stick.

Aspect ratio: for all talks, the aspect ratio is 16:9. 

Arrive at your session room 30 minutes prior to the session start to connect your USB stick to session room laptop (PC running Windows 10 and MS Office 2016 with PowerPoint). There is a hub so you can leave your stick OR you are a welcome to save to the Desktop.

There will not be a dedicated speaker ready room but a laptop similar to the ones used in the session rooms will be available if needed. Inquire at the registration desk.

Speakers will not be able to present from their own laptop, but instead must pre-load onto session room PC laptop.

POSTER BOARDS/POSTER SIZE: Each author will be provided one board with a presentation area measuring 7-ft 10-in wide x 3-ft 10-in tall. You do not have to create a poster to fill the entire board. A common poster size that we suggest as your minimum dimensions is 48" wide x 36" tall (landscape orientation). You may also choose a portrait orientation, but your poster should be no taller than 42" or it will hang off the board. Each board will be numbered; poster numbers are in the final program that you receive at the conference and in the mobile app. Push pins will be provided.

TITLE: The title should span at least 2/3 of the width of your poster. Lettering should be at least 3/4" to 1" high (72 pt. bold). The banner should include the author(s) and affiliation(s).

CONTENT AND LAYOUT: Use a sans serif font such as Arial or Helvetica in a minimum size of 24 pt. (1/4" high). Text, figures and photographs should be readable from a distance of 4 feet. If using multiple panels, number them in the order they should be viewed and arrange them in a logical flow from top left to lower right.

HANDOUTS: Authors are welcome to provide handouts, e.g., preprints, extended abstracts, copies of poster panels, etc. No saleable items may be displayed. Handouts are not required, but do help attendees who may have missed the in-person presentation to have the materials and possibly make contact with the author for follow-up requests
