Presenter Information


Oral Presentations

  • If selected for an oral presentation, your presentation slot will be 15 minutes in length, which includes presentation and discussion. Please plan on preparing a 12 minute oral presentation which leaves time for a 3 minute discussion period.
  • Invited speakers will be given a 20 minute slot for both presentation and discussion with the presentation length left to the discretion of the speaker (e.g. 16 minute oral presentation and 4 minutes for discussion).
  • Presentation order within sessions will be specified on the My Papers page and also listed in the program. Please note that presentation order may be changed any time prior to the start of the symposium.
  • All technical material will be presented via a University of Michigan laptop. Details on the platform and specific software available on the presentation laptop will be posted here when we are closer to the conference. There will be a test room available for speakers to test their presentations on an identical laptop and to upload their slides onto the presentation laptop. Please create your presentation keeping in mind the software we are using.
  • All files should be loaded onto the presentation machine at least one session before your presentation session.
  • Backup your presentation on several forms of media. You may wish to use a USB drive, upload to the cloud, or email your presentation for online access.
  • Presenting from personal machines or transparency / overhead projectors will not be available.

Poster Presentations
