Please break up material.  Sample  slides and additional instructions can be found here.  Formal presentations are timed as follows: Introduction: 1 minutes Presentation: 15 minutes Question/Answers: 4 minutes Poster Presentation Guidelines Poster sessions are an excellent format for authors to present their papers and interact with conference attendees for in-depth technical  discussions. In addition, attendees find that the poster session is a great way to sample many papers in parallel. For this reason it is important  that you display your message clearly and strikingly to attract people who would have an interest in your paper.   POSTER PREPARATION For your poster, a board will be provided which measures 4 ft high x 8 ft. wide. Push tacks will be available to tack your paper to the  poster. Please note: the conference supplied push tacks are the only means allowed for attaching your poster to the poster board  provided. Prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. There will be no time or materials available for last minute preparation at the  conference. The title of your paper should appear at the top of your poster in CAPITAL letters that are at least 1 inch high. Below the title put author(s)  name(s) and affiliation(s). Use pictures, cartoons, and figures rather than text wherever possible. Bright colors greatly enhance the  attention of the viewer. Use text sparingly. State the main result of your paper in six or less lines using 3/4 inch high letters. The flow of your paper should be from  top left to bottom right. You may use arrows to lead through the paper.   POSTER PRESENTATION   Prepare a short presentation of about 5 to 15 minutes that can be given to the attendees. Be prepared to repeat presentation several  times. Plan to spend the entire session at your poster.
