Oral Presentation Guidelines
CONTRIBUTED oral talks are 20 minutes in length, with nominally 16 minutes for your presentation and 4 minutes for questions.
INVITED talks are 40 minutes in length, with nominally 35 minutes for your presentation and 5 minutes for questions. Due to the many parallel sessions and the need for attendees to move between sessions, the Session Moderators will strictly adhere to the time schedule.
AVS will provide Windows laptop computers running Windows 10 Pro and MS Office 2013, screens, microphones, and projectors in all session rooms, as well as an HDMI connection from podium to projector. Please allow ample time for this; preferably the day before you are scheduled to present – not immediately before your talk. If you are using the AVS-provided computer, please load your presentation onto this computer at least five minutes prior to the start of the session or during a session break. In deference to all our presenters, it is important that personal computer/projector compatibility issues be worked out well in advance of your presentation. Please note that PowerPoint is the recommended presentation software and the preferred format is 16:9, wide format screens. The projector is expected to be compatible with both PC’s and MAC’s; however, please bring any necessary adapters/dongles as well as a copy of your presentation on a flash drive as a back-up.
