Presentation Information

The conference has two types of sessions - Oral presentation sessions and Interactive Presentation presentation sessions. The type of the presentation does not differentiate the quality of the paper or the presentation. The type of the presentation is not specified or indicated in the conference proceedings. Many highest quality papers are placed in the Interactive Presentation sessions to give more interaction time for discussion. Each session is either an oral presentation session or a Interactive Presentation session. Those sessions arranged in the Tahoe room, more specifically session MP1-8, MP1-9, MP1-10, MP1-11, MP1-12, TP1-8, TP1-9, TP1-10, TP1-11, and TP1-12, are Interactive Presentation sessions. Those arranged in Laughlin, Silver, Copper, Elko, Ely, Goldfield, and Tonopah rooms are oral presentation sessions.

All presenters are invited to the Speakers' Breakfast at 7:00 AM on the day of your presentation. The area is setup with tables that will be reserved with your session name. You should introduce yourself to the session chair and discuss last minute procedures.

The instructions for both the oral and poster presentations are given bellow.

    • Each oral presentation is allocated a 20minutes slot. Please prepare a 15minutes talk to allow for questions.
    • Presenter should arrive at the session room at least 5minutes before the session starting time. Each oral presentation room will have available an LCD projector and a laptop computer. Speakers are required to try out the equipment before their session begins or during the breaks.

  • Equipment

“Interactive Presentation” Instructions

  • Presenting Your Paper
    • Interactive Presentation papers have a full 2 hour time slot. For the first 30mins, each presenter shall give a 5 minutes presentation in turn. The presentation shall be given in front of your poster to all audiences attending your session. So please prepare a 5 minute explanation of your work, concentrating on the key innovation, and be ready to interact with the audience that approaches your poster in the next 90minutes.
    • The Interactive Presentation sessions will take place in the Tahoe room. Please have your poster ready for presentation at least 15minutes before the start of the session. Posters should be taken down right after each poster session.
    • Interactive presenters are required to stay near your poster throughout the 2 hour session. Please let the session chair know or have someone help you to present your paper if you need to leave your poster more than 3minutes.

  • Exhibition Panels

    The size of the interactive boards is 22in x 28in (portrait size). Each presenter will have *one* interactive board on which to display his presentation.
