In addition to the 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.
The organizers will contact all of the authors regarding the length of their talk and question and answer period.
Standard equipment provided in the plenary session room includes an LCD data projector, screen, lectern, pointer, and microphone.
Speakers must upload their presentation at least one day in advance of their session. 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.
