Presenter Guidelines

Oral Presentations

Contributed talks are 15 minutes total (12 min+3 min for Q&A) and Invited talks are 25 minutes total (20 min+5 min for Q&A).

We will have both a Mac and a Windows laptop at the podium. If you think a computer/OS mismatch might present problems, please export to PDF. If you have animations in your presentation, it is highly recommended that you test them on our laptops at the meeting (e.g., during a coffee or lunch break), because from past experience, these have a high failure rate.


Posters should fit within a space of 44 inches by 44 inches (112 cm by 112 cm). Posters will be on display throughout the workshop. Posters can be mounted as early as Tuesday at noon and must be removed by lunchtime on Friday. Poster spots are be pseudo-randomly numbered with the number indicated on the poster's page. Please place your poster in the appropriately numbered location when you arrive.
