Poster sessionsPosters will be presented from 16:00-18:00 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the Exhibit Hall, located in the basement of the Hyatt Regency. Posters can be mounted earlier in the day of their presentation, starting at 11:00 am. Poster boards are 4 feet high by 8 feet wide. People presenting posters are asked to remove them no later than 19:00 on the day of the presentation. Beer, soft drinks, and light snacks will be available at the poster sessions.
Oral sessionsThere are six parallel oral sessions, which will run from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Wednesday-Friday and from 8:00 am to 12:30 PM on Saturday. There will be a break in the morning sessions from 10:00 am to 10:30 am and ample time for lunch from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm. Note that poster sessions begin at 4:00 pm, approximately when the oral sessions end.
Presenters in the oral sessions must report to their sessions 20 minutes prior to the start of the session to set up their talks. VGA switch boxes will be provided in each presentation room that allow each presenter to separately connect their OWN LAPTOP to the projector. A backup copy of the presentation stored on a USB drive will enable multiple presenters in a session to share a single laptop, if they desire and arrange prior to the session start.
