Presenter Information


Pushpins will be provided to all poster presenters. Each poster will have an area of at least 36" x 48" (landscape, or portrait). If you need a larger display area, please let us know. We have some boards that are larger, and they will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Just let us know via email if you need a larger board, so that we can accommodate your needs.

Posters will be on display in the Integrated Science Building. When you arrive in the morning, you will be assigned a specific board. It is recommended that you arrive promptly at 9am, to ensure you have enough time to check in and hang up your poster. Posters should be removed after the Closing Session.


With the full schedule that we have planned, it is important that we smoothly transition between talks and minimize technical delays. Unfortunately, if it takes too long to begin your presentation, we may have to skip your talk (we want to avoid this). If you are speaking, you may use a shared machine (preferred), or your own computer.

If you would like to use a shared machine: Please send your talk via email, Google Drive, or OneDrive, to Paul Whitford (, no later than 12pm on Friday, May 12th.

If you plan to use your own machine: Please be prepared to connect via VGA and HDMI. We ask that you are prepared for both, in case of any technical issues (we all know they happen at the worst times!).

Regardless of how you plan to present, it is recommended that you have a back-up with you on a thumb drive, so that you can promptly change devices, should that be necessary. In addition, in order to remain on schedule, it is very important that you test your presentation in the auditorium at the designated time window below:

Speakers in the Opening Session or Topical Session 1 - 9:00-9:30 am
Speakers in Topical Session 2 - 11:10-11:30 (morning coffee break)
Speakers in Topical Sessions 3 or 4 - 2:00-2:30 (end of lunch/poster period)
Speakers in the Closing Session - 4:10-4:30 (afternoon coffee break)
