PRESENTER INSTRUCTIONS
January 21st, 2007


Instructions for oral presentations and posters have now been posted. Please download the poster instructions for detailed information here.

INSTRUCTIONS for ORAL PRESENTATION:
Podium presentations will be 10 minutes long, followed by 5 minutes for discussion.  Presentations will need to be uploaded to the organizers prior to the symposium. Please use the www.yousendit.com service to transfer the files. The service is free and allows sending large data files. Sending us the file ahead of time will ensure that the presentation will work properly on the provided computer. The file format will need to be compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint (Office XP). Deadline for submitting the presentation is Monday, February 5th.

INSTRUCTIONS for ORAL POSTER PRESENTATION:
Due to the overwhelming number of abstracts submitted to this meeting we will have for the first time an oral poster introduction in addition to the regular oral presentations. Adding this section allowed us to include six more  abstracts.  Oral poster introductions will be 3 minutes long and are limited to 5 slides (Title, Intro, Methods, Results and Discussion). There is no Q&A following the introduction. Presentations will need to be uploaded to the organizers prior to the symposium. Please use the www.yousendit.com service to transfer the files. The service is free and allows sending large data files. Sending us the file ahead of time will ensure that the presentation will work properly on the provided computer. The file format will need to be compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint (Office XP). Deadline for submitting the presentation is Monday, February 5th.

INSTRUCTIONS for POSTER PRESENTATION:
In addition to the podium presentation, we would like to invite you to present your research in a poster format during the dinner reception. This combination of podium and poster presentation is unique to this forum and we believe it will provide much needed networking opportunity for the presenting researcher. Please download the instructions detailing the poster specifications.
