Presentation Guidelines

  • Speakers are invited to present for 12-13 minutes allowing 2-3 minutes for questions, for a total of 15 minutes.

  • All speakers must provide a final copy of their presentation file by midnight EDT the day before they are scheduled to speak.
  • Presentation files should be uploaded to the workshop google drive folder, which is organized by morning and afternoon for each day.
    Suggested filename: PresentationOrder#_LastName_PresentationTitle. Presentation Order # is the order of your presentation counting from the beginning of each AM or PM schedule block.
  • Accepted presentation file formats: PPTX, PDF, and ODP. If you do not have movies/animations in your slides, we highly recommend you provide a PDF file.
  • Hotel AV staff will be screen sharing all of the presentations from AV laptops (Windows), and it will not be possible for in-person speakers to present directly from their own laptops or for virtual speakers to directly screen share from their own laptops.
