Overview of Agenda:

Thursday, May 4 Oral Presentations
Poster Session/Reception
Friday, May 5 Oral Presentations


Contributed oral presentations are scheduled for 12 minutes per talk with an additional 3 minutes allotted for discussion. Invited talks are for 25 minutes with 5 minutes of discussion. Discussion periods are scheduled to end each half-session, before breaks and lunch.

A PC laptop, LCD projector, and speaker remote will be available for oral presentations. In order to facilitate a smooth transition between speakers, all presentations must be preloaded onto the session room laptop and tested in advance.

To aid the preloading process, create a folder on your flash drive/CD called “newviews2017” and place your PowerPoint presentation in that folder. Include your last name in the naming of your presentation file. An IT technician will be available each morning from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m. and each afternoon from 12:45 to 1:15 p.m. to assist with loading your talk.
