Conference Badges
Please wear your name badge at all times. This badge will grant you access to the conference center, events and meals.

Oral Presentations
For 10 minute oral presentation the presenter MUST leave a minimum of 2 minutes for discussion and therefore has a maximum of 8 minutes for the talk itself.
For presentations more than 10 minutes, presentation MUST leave a minimum of 5 minutes for discussion.

The timing rules will be rigidly enforced to avoid disadvantaging other speakers.
Poster Presentations
Posters must fit on a 3’ x 4’ poster board. Each poster will be assigned to a designated poster board with an assigned poster number. Each poster presenter is asked to give a short, 2 minute oral description of the overall message of the poster. You may start setting up your poster on the evening of Sunday, October 4. Posters must be disassembled by Thursday, October 8.

Session Chair Guidelines
All session chairs are asked to remind speakers to adhere to the time limits and assist in compliance. Chairs should also facilitate question and answer sessions by identifying audience participants and controlling this period of time. Remind speakers and questioners that long discussions can and should be extended into the next break, rather than into the next speaker’s allotted time. All session chairs are responsible for ensuring that their session end on time.

Internet Access
Wireless internet will be available for participants during conference events at the Hanover Inn. The Hanover Inn, Six South Street, Element and Residence Inn all offer complementary wireless internet to their guests.
