Presenter Instructions


  • Presenters may either use their own laptop (suggested) or the venue provided built in computers (Mini Macs).

Presentation files should be titled as LASTNAME.FIRSTNAME - TITLE.
  • If you are bringing your own presentation laptop, we ask that during the final minute of questions of the previous presentation, the next presenter get their laptop setup for the next presentation.  This should ensure a smooth transition to the next talk. The Chair of each session will be able to assist with this as needed.
  • LCD projector cables will only have VGA/HDMI connections available. Presenters should provide any other needed adapters for their laptops. 
  • For non-symposia presentations, speakers will be allocated 18 minutes for their presentation and questions. The recommended format is 15 minutes for the presentation and 3 minutes for questions, but each presenter may decide as to how they would like to allocate their 18 minutes. However, in order to remain on schedule, any presentation that uses the full 18 minutes will not be granted any time for questions. Presentations that exceed 18 minutes will be ended by the Chair if necessary.
  • The Chair of each session will keep exact speaking time and will signal speakers when they have 5, 3, and 1-minute remaining within the 15-minute speaking window.  For the questioning portion, the Chair of the session will moderate and will let presenters know when they should take the final question.
  • If you have any additional requirements, questions, or concerns regarding your spoken presentation, please let us know at
