CNREP 2016: Guidance for Presenters

Software and hardware 

Oral presentations should be developed using recent Microsoft Office PowerPoint (MS Office 2010 or 2013 preferred). Each room will have a dedicated computer and LCD projector. The computer will be Windows-based. Mac versions of presentations may need to be converted to PDF in order to display properly. Animations will not work in presentations converted to PDF. 

Time limits

Concurrent sessions are 90 minutes long.  A typical session has 4* presentations, thus each speaker has only 20 minutes total time. We strongly suggest that speakers limit their oral comments to 15 minutes and allow the final 5 minutes for audience questions. Please practice your talk so that you are within your allotted time. Speakers who exceed their allotted time will be cut off by the moderator.  This is necessary to keep sessions on schedule and allow ample time for all presenters. The order of presentations should not be changed.

* For sessions involving 5 presentations, the maximum time allowed will be 15 minutes of total time per speaker.  
** Lightning round presentations are a maximum of 3 minutes of total time per speaker 

Submitting slide presentations by email or on-site

All presenters are encouraged to submit their slides via email to Roy Kron (rkron@lsu.edu) no later than Thursday, March 17. Any presentation not submitted by this date should not be emailed, but instead be uploaded in the speaker ready room (Esplanade Room) immediately upon arrival to the conference, and no later than 3 hours before the session. Questions from session moderators should be directed to Luke Boutwell (jlukeboutwell@gmail.com). 


Panel discussion sessions are also 90 minutes long.  The format for each discussion will vary by panel organizer, and panelists should consult with their session moderator for guidance on preparation. Contacts for information for moderators are available in the attended list of the on-line conference program. Questions from panel moderators  should be directed to Luke Boutwell (jlukeboutwell@gmail.com). 


Poster set up will be available in the Evangeline Suite (A&B) from 1:30 pm on Sunday, March 20 through 3 pm on Monday, March 21st. The poster viewing session is 5-6:30 pm on Monday, March 21. Questions  regarding posters should be directed to Molly Cisneros  (cisneros.molly@gmail.com)
