Plenary sessions will take place in Kresge Auditorium and parallel sessions will take place in various rooms.
Speakers MUST upload their slides 24 hours before their talk. It is strongly advised that speakers come by to the Speaker's Bureau to check that their slides uploaded properly and confirm that there are no issues with displaying.
The allotted times shown in the program include discussion time. The parallel session talks include 5 minutes of discussion time, and the 30-minute plenary session talks include 5 minutes of discussion time. There will be a session chair who will keep track of the time and alert you when there are 5, 2 and 1 minutes remaining.
Only digital material will be allowed for oral presentations. There will be no overhead projectors (OHP). If your presentation is in the form of OHP slides, they must be scanned to a digital file before you come to Cambridge. Be sure to embed all non-standard fonts in the PDF file.
