Information for Presenters
Author notification letters will not be mailed out. To see the method of presentation and time that has been assigned to your abstract, refer to the author index.
Oral Presentations —
Oral presentations are scheduled for 15 minutes per talk: 10 minutes for speaking, and 5 minutes for discussion and speaker transition.
Audio-visual equipment provided will include laptop PCs and Macs and an LCD projector. There is no option for dual-screen presentations.
Presentation validation will be in the Sterling Ridge Room. Checking in oral presentations is the most important step presenters can take to ensure their presentations are successful. Those presenting on Monday morning should check in their presentations on Sunday evening when they register.
For more information, including a detailed schedule of presentation validation times and tips for preparing effective electronic presentations, read the following document:
In addition to the technical tips given in the above document, whether it’s your first talk or your 500th, we strongly encourage speakers to read the blog written by Emily Lakdawalla following last year’s LPSC:
