Equipment—The computers provided in the session rooms will be Windows based PCs with Microsoft Office. Your presentation must be created in, or converted to, Microsoft’s PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx) format or Adobe PDF (.pdf) format. PowerPoint files created on Macintosh computers should be previewed on a PC to ensure cross-platform compatibility. Most meeting rooms will have widescreen (16:9) screens. However, both standard (4:3) and widescreen (16:9) formatted presentations will work in all rooms. Laser pointers will be available.
Length & Format—Contributed oral presentations will be allotted 12 minutes for the talk and 3 minutes for questions. Invited presentations, such as plenary sessions and symposia, will have session-specific time allotments.
Moderators—Session moderators will be designated to facilitate each session. The names of the moderators are noted in the session schedule. The session moderator will provide technical assistance with displaying your presentation.
Please bring presentations on a thumb drive to upload in advance of your session.

Landscape orientation is preferred.
Poster Board Assignments—All poster boards will be numbered. Because some posters are being evaluated, please make sure that you place your poster in the correct location.

OPTIONAL VIRTUAL PRESENTATIONS
Although NOT required, in-person attendees presenting contributed oral and poster presentations are encouraged to share their conference presentations with virtual participants by creating and uploading a pre-recording presentation to the virtual platform. In-person oral presentations would follow the 15-minute time limit, and in-person poster presenters would be limited to 5 minutes. All other formatting guidelines and applicable deadlines for virtual presentations apply. Please see the Virtual Presentation Guidelines for additional details.
If you would like to participate in the virtual portion of the meeting, please upload your pre-recorded presentation by the published deadlines. In-person conference attendees are still expected to present in Anchorage.
