Poster Presentations Information

All posters must be smaller than 4' high and 8' wide (they are typically smaller than this, you don't have to fill the poster board). Your name and assigned poster number will be fixed to the board. We suggest that you also print your poster number on your poster. Push pins for hanging your poster will be provided. Hang your poster 15 min before your sessions starts. Please attend to your poster for the entire poster session.

American Chemical Society guidelines for discussion about health and safety in chemistry are attached here. Please review and include Health and Safety as part of your poster presentation.

Oral Presentations Information

All oral presentations must be completed in the time allotted including Q&A. A projector, screen, and presenter/pointer will be provided. There will NOT be laptops provided in the session rooms. Your session moderator may allow you to use theirs if you do not have a laptop. There is not audio so do not try to play animations that require sound. There will be a wireless lavaliere and sound projection in the larger rooms. We suggest that your entire presentation be in one file (PPT). The projectors and screens are set up for a 16x9 format. Adjust your PPT accordingly. VGA and HDMI connectors will be provided in each room. Going to the internet for a video often fails.

Check in with the session presider 15 min before the start of your session.
