Oral talks are all 15 mins in length except where otherwise indicated in the program. A laptop computer will be provided for presentations. In order to avoid lengthy handovers between talks, speakers will not be permitted to present from their own computers unless exceptional circumstances apply. If you need to use your own computer (e.g., due to a need for custom display software) please contact the organizers – your talk may be moved to the end of the session in this case.
Please bring your talk on a USB memory stick to the front of the room between 8:00-8:30 am for uploading and checking/testing, or preferably send by e-mail the day before to email@example.com. Presentations should be designed either as PowerPoint (PPTX), or provided as PDF files if designed using other software. After the meeting, talks will be uploaded to the meeting website unless the presenter requests otherwise. Speakers will be given 10 mins for each talk, followed by 5 mins for questions and speaker changeover.
Posters will be presented on a 36"x48" format. Poster presenters who are requesting a table to show hardware or set up a laptop, and/or electrical connections, should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements a week before the conference.
Plan to arrive at the Badge Pickup point (Visitor Center) at 800 AM if you are a visitor collecting a badge and are a US citizen or green-card holder. Park in the visitor lot and proceed inside the reception building to collect your badge. Photo ID is required for US citizens and non-citizens. Green-card holders should also bring their green cards. The Symposium is taking place in the building 34 Auditorium (B34-W150, first floor, see map).
Foreign national visitors must arrive at the Main Gate (Building 9) at 0730AM with your passport to pick up your badge and meet your escort.
After collecting your badge, you can return to your car and drive to Building 34, showing your badge and photo ID to the guard at the gate. Park in any nearby parking lot (see map), except for reserved spots or handicapped spaces.
