The conference program will include invited and contributed oral presentations, as well as posters. Abstracts must be submitted for each of these by March 7, 2011. Following submission the Scientific Organizing Committee may decide to change a contributed oral presentation to a poster presentation if the schedule is too full.
We also invite attendees to submit electronic "advertisements" of their posters though this is not required. You must have submitted an abstract by the March 7, 2011 deadline for an electronic poster to be accepted into the program. We have prepared a simple template to help you prepare your electronic poster "advertisement".
Invited and contributed talk speakers can upload their presentations here.
Read below for more information on the presentations.
Invited Talk speakers will have a total of 40 minutes for their presentations (30 min + 10 min for questions)
Contributed Talk speakers will have a total of 15 minutes for their presentations (12 min + 3 min for questions)
Please note the following important information for oral presentations:
Posters will be exhibited throughout the week in rooms adjacent to the main meeting room. The useable space on the bulletin boards for displaying each poster is 36 inch high x 40 inch wide (two posters per side). Posters can be put up after 12 pm on Sunday, May 1 and must be taken down by Thursday, May 5 at 6:00 pm or they will be discarded.
Attendees also have the option of submitting an electronic "advertisement" for their poster. These should highlight the poster and not replicate it. We have prepared a simple template to help you prepare your electronic poster "advertisement". These will be displayed during the week on screens at the conference center. For best display of the electronic posters, please submit them as PDF files (of less than 20 Mb), in landscape format with a ~16:9 aspect ratio and a display resolution of at least 1280 x 960.
There will be no published proceedings from this conference. However, the presentation slides will be posted on-line along with the electronic posters.
