Presenter Instructions

Be sure to have your faculty advisor approve your abstract BEFORE submitting. Abstracts are limited to 900 characters. The submission will be rejected if the length exceeds the character count.  Please either type your abstract into the abstract submission form or copy to notepad (or texedit for MAC) then copy it into the form.  If using scientific symbols, please spell them out instead of using the symbol(s) as not all symbols will save correctly and/or download from the system correctly.

Please DO NOT include your faculty adviser or co-authors as “Co-Presenters”. If you and another individual(s) will give your presentation together at the conference, then do add their name(s) as a co-presenter. List co-authors in the specified field(s).

PRESENTATION OPTIONS:

  • Traditional Sessions:  Traditional presentations are 15 minutes long. Prepare to take 12 minutes for your presentation and allow 3 minutes for Q&A.
  • 3-Minute Session:  A special 3-Minute presentation session is being hosted this year by the Department of Computer Science.  CS students who wish to participate in this session in lieu of the traditional CS sessions should type “3-minute Session” at the beginning of their abstract when submitting it online.  This will assist the department coordinator in schedule the department sessions.

Please arrive at your scheduled session a few minutes early in order to load your presentation onto the Tech Podium system prior to the beginning of the session.  You will be notified via email when and where you are assigned to present the week of the conference. If you have a specific scheduling need or conflict, please contact your department coordinator immediately.
