Oral Presentation Guidelines
Oral presentations will be conducted as plenary sessions in room 1313 of the National Weather Center. Except for keynote speakers, each author will have 12 minutes for their presentation followed by 3 minutes for questions and answers. The meeting room will be equipped with a video projector, a computer, a microphone, screens of appropriate size, and a timer to be used by the session chair to facilitate the session.
The supplied computer will run Microsoft Windows and PowerPoint 2010. If your presentation was created on a Mac or using different software, please convert it and test it before you come to the symposium.
Please bring your presentation file(s) on a USB hard drive or a USB flash drive, and make sure it gets uploaded to the presentation computer in room 1313 ahead of time. You will be able to upload your presentation during most breaks and from 7:30 to 8:30 am on Wednesday morning.
Note: If your graphics or video clips are not embedded in your presentation, please be sure to bring them as well. If your presentation was produced on a Mac and it includes embedded video, your video will most likely NOT play automatically on the PC platform. We strongly recommend that you test your Mac-produced presentation on a Windows-based system before arriving at the symposium.
Poster Presentation Guidelines
Poster presentations will be conducted in the atrium of the National Weather Center. There will be one unattended session on Wednesday evening in conjunction with the Ice-Breaker Reception, and one regular poster session on Thursday morning.
We will provide poster boards on easels that are approximately 40 inches high by 30 inches wide (100 cm high by 75 cm wide). Note that these boards have a vertical (portrait) orientation. Pushpins for mounting will be provided during poster set up times. Please note that due to space constraints, we cannot provide tables or access to power supplies in the poster area.
Posters should be set up during the morning or afternoon coffee breaks on Wednesday. Posters not removed by the end of the symposium will be discarded.
