Presenter Instructions

  1. Posters should be roughly 40 by 32 inches and can be displayed either in portrait or landscape layout.
  2. Please ensure that the title of the paper, name(s) of the author(s), and affiliation are displayed on the poster.
    You will be provided with an easel on which to attach the poster. Your spot on the easel will be marked by your paper's title and authors. Pins will be provided. Please attach your poster to the easel, preferably after you have registered at the conference desk (i.e. as soon as possible). The idea is to have the posters on display for as long as possible. If it is possible, we would like to have the posters on display for the duration of the conference.
  3. You are required to have a presenter at the poster throughout the assigned poster session (Schedule).
  4. Keep in mind that the poster must be readable from 2 meters away.
  5. Please be sure to have your poster also on a USB Flash drive that you bring to the conference, in case you might misplace or lose the poster in transit. If you need to print your poster at the conference site, contact the poster co-chairs (Bruce McLaren - and Jihie Kim - or the local social chair volunteers, Breya Walker ( or Carol Forsyth (
  1. Presenters will have 20 minutes to give their talks, with 5 additional minutes available for questions from the audience. Please ensure that your talk will not go over the time limit.
  2. A session chair will introduce you, give you updates on the time, and moderate the question period.
  3. Please arrive early to your session to meet the session chair and plan to stay for the full session.
  4. Each room will be equipped with a 4x3 projector and sound. You should bring your own laptop or arrange to share with another presenter in your session. We recommend you have your talk on a USB flash drive.
