Eastern Branch Presenter Information

Oral Presenters

Presentations should be created in a format compatible with PowerPoint (.pptx). All meeting room computers will be PCs, so a presenter who creates a presentation using a Mac should test the file on a PC computer prior to the meeting. 

Student Competition 10-min Presenters:

Student competitors must provide their presentations to the Student Competition Chair, Brenna Traver, by 8:00 PM Saturday, March 18. You will not be able to upload your presentation on the day of the session. There are two ways to provide your presentation: 

  • Brenna will be available in the L'Apogee Foyer near registration from 6:00 - 8:00 PM on Saturday, March 18. This will be the only time available for student presenters to upload onsite and the only time to do a quick check of your presentation prior to the session.
  • If you will not be at the meeting during that time on Saturday, you can (and are encouraged to) submit your presentation to Brenna electronically before the meeting. You will receive an email from Brenna that contains a OneDrive File Request. 

Any questions regarding student competition presentation uploads can be directed to Brenna Traver

Symposia Presenters:

Presenters in symposia are requested to provide their symposium organizer with their presentation prior to the start of the session. Please coordinate the details directly with your symposium organizer. 

Regular 10-min Presenters:

Presenters in the regular 10-minute paper session should provide their presentation to David Hawthorne in advance of the session. Please email David directly with your presentation by 8:00 PM Saturday, March 18. You will not be able to upload your presentation on the day of the session.
