Presentation Guidelines

A short paper presentation is a 25-minute session that may be divided between presentation, demonstration, and discussion in any way the presenter chooses. A poster presentation can be any form of research display and can be supplemented by handouts. Posters will be presented in a 90-minute plenary session.

The rooms for paper presentations are equipped with a Macintosh computer with PowerPoint and Keynote and a built-in DVD player, a laptop port, and a video projector and room speakers for video and audio playback.
