Speaker Information

How to find your own session

All sessions will be held in room 130 at Fairleigh Dickinson University Vancouver Campus.

Audio-visual services

Room 130 will be equipped with a computer, with a WINDOWS 7/10 operating system and 4:3 format for the screen, and a projector with VGA input. Please follow these guidelines to ensure a successful presentation.

Loading your presentation

Please arrive for your session at least 15 minutes before it begins to upload your presentation to the computer in the room before the session starts. A volunteer or technical staff will assist you.

Presentation guidelines

Each session is 90 minutes. Time your presentation to fit in 15 minutes + 5 minutes Q&A.. In any case, follow the session chair indications.

  • We encourage speakers to bring a USB key with a copy of their presentation.
  • Volunteers will provide support for the handling of the computer projectors.
Presentation Format

We strongly recommend that authors format their presentations in PDF. This drastically reduces potential difficulties due to the change in operating system. Alternatively, consider using PowerPoint for your presentation.

Assistance during your session

If you have a problem in your session room related to technical needs or any other requests, please contact one of volunteers wearing a yellow T-shirt.

Session chair guidelines

The role of the Chair is to coordinate the smooth running of the session and introduce each speaker. The chair begins and ends each session on time. Please stick to the order of talks and times announced in the program.

Program information desk

If you have general questions about the meeting or questions about your own presentation, stop by at the information desk located at the entrance of the university. We ask first authors and session chairs to notify the information desk about any last-minute changes or cancellations; these changes will be posted outside the meeting rooms.
