Platform Instructions

You will be given a maximum of 20 minutes, including time for questions. It is strongly recommended that you aim to present for 15 minutes, with 5 minutes for questions. ATW session chairs will stick firmly to the time slots allotted so participants can take advantage of the various offerings at concurrent sessions.

Presenters will be required to submit their PowerPoint presentations to session chair(s) or the designated presentation coordinator in the session room either before the session begins (i.e., 8:00 am) or at the start of the coffee break (either 9:50 am or 3:20 pm) preceding your presentation time. In addition, please identify yourself to the Session Chair(s) of your session before it begins.

***Please note: PowerPoint presentations should be in a 16:9 (widescreen) size format. If operating a PC with PowerPoint 2007, this formatting step can be completed by going to the “Design” menu, selecting “Page Setup” and selecting 16:9 from the drop-down menu. If operating a Mac system, go to the “File” menu, select “Page Setup” and select “Slide Sized for 16:9″. Be sure to review all slides after making this change to ensure all text and graphics are still arranged as preferred.
