POSTER PRINTING SERVICE

Presenting authors will receive an email from Call4Posters® once their poster is accepted. This will include a link and instructions on how to prepare and upload posters for printing.
PREPARATION OF PRESENTATIONS
Please check in at the Speaker Preparation Room the day before or at least 2 hours prior to your scheduled presentation. This will allow you to review your PowerPoint presentation, submit any changes to your presentation and receive assistance from technical staff if needed. Presenters are not allowed to bring their PowerPoint presentation directly to the session room. It must be uploaded to the online submission system beforehand.
Once your PowerPoint presentation has been confirmed, the technical staff will be responsible for its delivery to your session room. All session rooms will be equipped with a presentation computer, projector and screen. With touch screen control at the lectern, you will be able to simply touch "next slide" or "previous slide".
Please be in your session room 15 minutes before the start of the session. We recommend checking in with the Session Chairs prior to the beginning of your session.
