ORAL PRESENTERS

Important Rules for Podium Presenters
Each presentation will be limited to 4 minutes. Strict timekeeping will be enforced to provide each presenter with a fair share of time and to allow adequate time for discussion. For best use of the time allowed, we recommend a brief introduction and materials and methods presentation, but concentration on presenting your data and proposing conclusions to your study, especially with regard to their clinical significance. Please note that the microphone will be shut off if your presentation extends more than 15 seconds beyond the 4 minute time limit.

Disclosure Slide
The disclosure slide is in addition to the 20 maximum slides you are allowed and needs to be a separate PowerPoint file from your presentation. Therefore you will be uploading two files to the online Speaker Ready Room, one will be your presentation and the other will be the disclosure slide. After you upload your presentation, click on the icon to upload your disclosure slide. Disclosure slides are due September 3.

As a reminder, the disclosure form is for your use to obtain the information from your co-authors.
