Oral Presentation Guidelines
Please note that AVS will provide sanitizing kits in every session room (wipes, hand sanitizer, and Lysol) for your use and these will be available at the podium.
CONTRIBUTED Oral Talks are 20 minutes in length, which includes 4 minutes for questions.
INVITED Talks are 40 minutes in length, which includes 6 minutes for questions.
Due to the many parallel sessions and the need for attendees to move between sessions, the Session Moderators will strictly adhere to the time schedule. You must plan your presentation so that you finish within your allotted time and the session stays on schedule.
The conference will provide Windows laptop computers, screens, microphones, and projectors in all session rooms, as well as an HDMI connection from the podium to the projector. We encourage you to use the system and to test your presentation on our equipment in the Presenter’s Preview Room prior to your talk. Please allow ample time for this; preferably the day before you are scheduled to present – not immediately before your talk. If you are using the conference-provided computer, please load your presentation onto this computer at least five minutes prior to the start of the session or during a session break.
In deference to all our presenters, it is important that personal computer/projector compatibility issues be worked out well in advance of your presentation. Please note that PowerPoint is the recommended presentation software-the preferred format is 16:9; you may use 4:3 but there will be black space above and below your presentation on some of the screens. The projector should be compatible with both PCs and Macs; however, please bring any necessary adapters/dongles as well as a copy of your presentation on a flash drive as a backup.
