Presenter Guidelines

We ask presenters to please carefully read over the following guidelines to ensure that panels run smoothly for both presenters and their audiences. Thank you in advance.


  • Each presenter (excluding keynote speakers) will have 15 minutes for their presentation followed by 10 minutes for questions and answers for the panel.
  • Each panel is scheduled for 75 minutes, with between 3-5 presentations in each panel. Most panels will have 4 presentations.
  • Please arrive 10 minutes early to load presentations and familiarize yourself with the room and equipment.


  • Each room will have a PC computer which presentations can be loaded onto. Please bring your presentation on a USB stick.
  • Each room will also include a projector, microphone, and internet access. Be sure to pick up your Wifi access code at registration.
  • Cables to connect personal laptops to the projector will be available.
  • MAC USERS: please ensure that presentations are PC compatible OR bring your VGA adapter to connect directly to the projector from your MAC.


  • There will be no discussants for the panels, only chairs.
  • Formal conference papers are not required, only presentations.
  • Please print presentation notes and any other conference and travel material ahead of time as there are no printing facilities available at the conference venue.
