Program and Presenter Information

Detailed information about the agenda is available by viewing the program and abstracts. Authors will not receive notification letters. Please check the author i​n​d​e​x​ ​to see where your presentation has been scheduled.

Oral Presentations

A Mac and PC laptop, LCD projector, and speaker remote will be available for presentations during the oral sessions. In order to facilitate a smooth transition between speakers, all presentations will be preloaded and tested in advance. To aid the preloading process, create a folder on your flash drive called “leag2019” and place your presentation in that folder. Please include your last name in the naming of your presentation file. Someone will be available each morning and each afternoon to assist in loading your talk.

PowerPoint presentation format setup of 16:9 can best be supported.

Regardless of the number of talks you have given, speakers are encouraged to read the excellent blog written by Emily Lakdawalla:  Speak Your Science:  How to Give a Better Conference Talk.

How to design an effective scientific poster by Paul Byrne is an excellent resource for poster presenters. 


Poster presenters will be given the opportunity to upload an electronic file of their poster (e-poster). The interactive e-poster system provides additional exposure by giving fellow attendees and others the ability to view posters online.

The e-poster capability will open on October 14 and close on November 8. Poster presenters will receive instructions via e-mail for uploading their posters.

Note: All electronic submission forms are part of the Meeting Portal, which requires users to set up a personal profile to access our electronic forms (setting up a profile is quick and easy, requiring only a few minutes of your time).
