Presentation Guidelines

Oral & Poster Presentation Guidelines


Computers and projectors will be available to load talks prior to your presentation. We recommended using PowerPoint (2010+) or Acrobat software.  You can email your presentation to us prior to the conference ( or you may load your presentation after you arrive in San Francisco but well before the start of the session in which you are presenting. If you require any special equipment, or need to directly connect your laptop to the computer system, just let us know beforehand.

Oral Presentations should be prepared for a 15 min time slot (12 min presentation with 3 min for questions).


Size of posters should be maximum A0 (841×1189 mm) and the format may be either landscape or portrait. There will be no printing service available at the venue; please print your poster in advance.

Clips or pins will be provided at the venue. Please come to the registration desk with your poster, and we will show you where Posters will be on display.

Please have your poster up by Tuesday, 7 Feb 2017 in the Main Sail Ballroom at the Lodge at Tiburon by 6 pm and removed by Wed morning.
