Each paper presentation room will have an an LCD projector and a laptop running Windows, with PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat Reader installed. Presenters may use the laptop provided or they may use their own laptop. Presenters who use a conference laptop must bring their presentation in electronic form on either a USB drive or a CDROM.

Presenters should arrive at their session early, introduce themselves to the session chair, and verify that their presentation displays correctly. Each presentation is scheduled for 20 minutes, with 15 minutes for speaking and 5 minutes for questions. Session chairs will monitor the time and keep the sessions strictly on schedule.

Instructions for Poster Presenters
The Poster Session is usually held in the morning of the first day of the conference.

Please follow these instructions for preparing your posters.
  • Time and poster session location are TBD.
  • Please note that FLAIRS personnel will check in periodically, but will not be present in this space continuously during setup times. If issues arise, please contact FLAIRS staff at the registration desk, or leave a message with hotel staff to the attention of FLAIRS personnel.
  • Each poster presenter will be provided with a poster board, 4 feet wide by 3 feet high - just like this. Clips will be available to attach your poster to the board prior to the poster session. If you have any needs beyond this, please email the conference General Chair.
  • Poster presenters are expected to have their posters displayed by the beginning of the session and to be available to discuss their poster for the duration of the session.
After the Poster Session

  • If you want to keep your poster, you must take it with you, either at the end of the poster session or before the end of the conference. You cannot take the poster boards with you.
