In addition to invited speakers, the organizers will select abstracts for oral presentations, basing their selections on several criteria,
including research area, scientific impact, and laboratory representation. Authors indicate their preference for either an oral or poster
presentation when they submit their abstract. Note, however, that the Program Committee will decide the final designation of oral or poster
Because oral presentation requests far exceed the number of slots available, all authors should be prepared to present a poster if their abstract
is not selected for an oral presentation.
Presenters were told the length of their talk when they were invited to speak by the session chair. Please refer to the invite to see the length
of your talk and question and answer period.
Standard equipment provided in the room includes an LCD data projector, screen, lectern, pointer, and microphone.
Speakers must arrive at the meeting room at least 30 minutes in advance of the beginning of the session to become familiar with the equipment
and check in with the session chair. Use the format below to label your presentation. This format will make it easier for the chair to
display the correct presentation. If you prefer, you can use your own computer rather than loading your presentation on the meeting computer.
