Tips for Presenters
Bring a dongle for your mobile device. We will have projectors, but presenters are responsible for their own technology for presenting.
Keep to your allotted time (as shared by the presider). In many cases, several presenters are sharing time for each session. If there are 3 presentations, each presenter will have 13 minutes. If there are two presentations, each presenter will have 20 minutes. The presider will monitor time for each presenter and offer a Q&A after all presentations are complete.
Designing a slide deck (e.g., PowerPoint) with more imagery (e.g., graphs and charts) better conveys your message than slides of just text.
In lieu of sharing hard copies of your paper, feel free to share a QR code linked to a digital file with attendees.
When you enter the roundtable session room, look for the number on the table that matches the table number in the program. If you have difficulty finding your table, a presider will be available to help.
Plan to present your research for no more than 10 minutes and then offer a 5 minute Q&A. Moderate your time accordingly. Technology is not provided, so presenters should plan accordingly if they wish to share a slide deck (e.g., QR code, link) or 1 page summary of your research.
Roundtable presentations are generally more informal than paper presentations, and presenters are encouraged to engage in a discussion with attendees. Attendees, in turn, should feel free to move about as they see fit.
Presenters will offer participants an interactive presentation or demonstration of a resource, strategy, or approach. Include an opportunity for Q&A throughout or at the end of your training session.
The panel of researchers will discuss a topic from a variety of perspectives in one large conference room. Include an opportunity for Q&A throughout or at the end of your training session.
When you enter the poster session room, pick up an available tri-fold board to attach your poster. A standard 36” x 48” tri-fold board and clips will be provided.
Participants will have the opportunity to walk among the posters and engage with you to discuss your research. Prepare to give a short presentation every 10 to 15 minutes.
