Program and Presenter Information

Detailed information about the agenda is available by viewing the program and abstracts. Use the author index as a convenient way to locate specific presentations.

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 “oceanworlds2018” 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 at noon on the first day, and from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. each morning and each afternoon from 1:00 to 1:30 p.m. to assist in loading your talk.
