Talks will be scheduled in 15-minute time slots. We strongly encourage a presentation of no more than 12 minutes to allow three minutes for discussion and to entertain questions from those in the audience. In special cases, and at the discretion of the session organizers, invited presenters may be given two consecutive slots to provide a tutorial talk at the beginning of the session. The time limit will be strictly enforced to facilitate movement between sessions.
Prepare your data in Microsoft Power Point format.
Please arrive in time to download and preview your presentation at the Presentation Center (PC Center, Piazza Omi – Room 203) at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your session.

If your presentation data is linked to other files, those linked files also should be saved in the same folder and checked for operability beforehand.
