Presenters are not permitted to use their own computers or devices. In each lecture hall, presenters will have access to a laptop, mouse, laser pointer, and microphone.
A technician will be available during posted hours to help upload presentations to a central system. Speakers are strongly encouraged to check-in the day before their scheduled presentation. This will ease transitions between sessions where time is extremely tight. INS cannot guarantee the presentation will be available if not delivered the day before well in advance of the session.
PRESENTATION FILES: Please bring your presentation file with you on a USB memory stick/flash drive for easy export. If your presentation is in a format other than PowerPoint, or if it requires special programming, please inform the INS office as soon as possible. If you have video or audio clips embedded in your presentation, please bring a copy of those files along with your PowerPoint. Please note no handouts will be distributed.
All paper presenters must report to the Speaker Ready Room at least 24 hours before to whatever extent possible to upload their presentation to a central computer. Each paper session is 85 minutes in length and consists of six (6) individual presentations. Each paper presenter will have approx. 12 minutes to present their paper (including time for their introduction by the session moderator). Then, immediately following each presentation, the moderator will guide a 2-minute question and answer period. Please help the moderator and be respectful of other authors by staying within your allotted time, as each session is under a strict time limitation.
All poster sessions will take place in the Town & Country Foyer. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of your session in order to mount your poster. Please refer to the “Schedule” icon on the INS San Diego 2023 Meeting Page located at: https://www.the-ins.org/meetings/sandiego2023/schedule/ for final poster number. The presenting author must be present at the poster session and should remain with the poster to entertain questions for the duration of the session. A volunteer will be available 10 minutes prior to the start of each poster session to distribute push-pins and assist authors with finding their assigned poster board.
Please follow the instructions above for Poster Presenters. All poster symposia will occur in the Town & Country Foyer. Poster symposia occur during regular poster sessions, but are grouped together to allow authors to provide a cohesive presentation on their selected topic.
All symposium presenters must report to the Speaker Ready Room at least 24 hours before to whatever extent possible to upload their presentation to a central computer. All symposia sessions are 85 minutes in length. It is up to the Symposium Chair’s discretion to divide the time amongst the individual abstracts, the discussant, and to allow time for audience discussion and questions. Please stay within the time allotted by the Symposium Chair, as each session is under strict time limits.
