Oral Presenter / Invited Oral Presenter​

If you have been accepted as an oral presenter or invited oral presenter, please use these guidelines to prepare your presentation. Oral presenters will be required to upload their presentation as an MP4 file onto the platform. The simplest way to complete this is to use Zoom or another platform and use the record function so the presenter can share their screen with a PowerPoint while the presenter talks through the presentation. This also allows the presenter's video to be shown so attendees can watch you as you present. The recorded presentation will be downloaded as an MP4 file. Instructions on this can be found here. Presentations should be no longer than 15-20 minutes. 

Once the presentation upload link is sent on May 3, presenters will be able to upload their MP4 video presentation to the platform. Presenters will also be able to input contact information, a brief bio, and a headshot onto the platform that will show during the conference.

 
Poster Presenter / Student Poster Presenter​

If you have been accepted as a poster presenter or student poster presenter, please use these guidelines to prepare your presentation. Poster presenters will be required to upload their presentation in two files - a PDF file of the poster and an MP3 or M4A file of the audio. A template of the poster can be downloaded here. After completion of the poster, save the file as a PDF for upload. To create the audio file, use a recording function or your computer or the internet and discuss your poster. Once completed download this file as an MP3 or M4A file. 

 

Once the presentation upload link is sent on May 3, presenters will be able to upload the PDF and MP3/M4A files to the platform. When both files are uploaded the platform will automatically overlay the two files so when your poster is viewed the audio file automatically plays. Poster presentations should be no longer than 5-10 minutes.
