PPPS 2013 Presentation Instructions

The following summarizes the formats for Invited and Contributed Oral talks, as well as posters:

Oral presentations

Presentations must be uploaded onto the central server at least two hours prior to the beginning of your session. Due to the tight schedule, please note that speakers will not be allowed to connect personal computers to the projector, and session chairs will not be able to load presentations during oral sessions. If a talk is not uploaded in a timely manner, the Session Chair will have the option to replace it with a backup talk to ensure session continuity.

At the conference, a "Pre-Loading Center" will be available for checking the content of your presentation and uploading it to the central server.

Presentations may be uploaded from CD, DVD, or USB flash drive. Only Power Point presentations (.ppt) and Adobe Acrobat files (.pdf) will be accepted, as the available software includes Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader. The presenter is responsible for knowing how to use the software for their file format; a speaker ready room will be available for practice.

The “Pre-Loading Center” will be open on Sunday, June 16 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (16:00-18:00); and Monday-Friday (June 17-21) from 8 a.m. till Noon (8:00-12:00) and 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. (13:00-17:00).

A computer, projector, laser pointer, slide advancer, and microphone will be available in each oral session room. Your uploaded presentation will be available from the central server in each session room. Audio Visual Technicians will be available to provide technical support.

Time schedules for talks are as follows:

Poster Presentations

The poster sessions will be located on the Pacific Concourse.  Posters must fit on a 4 ft high x 8 ft wide poster board (i.e. landscape orientation). The poster presenter is expected to remain at the poster during the entire time allotted to the poster session. Each poster has been assigned a number, and must be mounted on the appropriately numbered board. (You can check the number by referring to the printed or on-line program once it is posted.)


Further information will be posted here when the Technical Program is completed to indicate times and venues, so check back before the conference starts.
