Oral Presentations: Each speaker will have 15 minutes total including questions and discussion. Although there are no concurrent sessions, speakers will be asked to step off the stage at the 15-minute mark in order to stay on schedule. The preferred format for presentations is MS Office PowerPoint for Windows. Each speaker should have received an email with instructions for emailing your presentation to Box (a cloud-based system used by Washington and Lee University, similar to Dropbox). No later than the break prior to your session, please check with the audiovisual technician to ensure your presentation has been loaded in the appropriate folder and can be opened on the resident computer. As backup, have your presentation saved to a USB memory stick.
Posters: Posters should be hung on the appropriate easel in the main floor of Leyburn Library between 8:30am and 3:00pm on Tuesday, June 18. Each easel will include a foam board backer and clips for attaching the poster. Foam boards are 30×40 inches. They can be oriented in either direction. Posters may remain on the easels until Wednesday, June 19, 5:30pm, or may be removed immediately following the poster session.
