Program and Presenter Information

Presenters will have an opportunity to discuss their abstracts during the panel sessions. During these breakout sessions all attendees are encouraged to contribute.

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

Oral Presentations

A 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 “lunardust” and place your PowerPoint presentation in that folder. Please include your last name in the naming of your presentation file. An IT technician will be available each morning and each afternoon to assist in loading your 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, as well as others, the ability to view posters online.

The e-poster capability will open January 28, 2020 and close February 27, 2020. 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).
