All Presenters attending the conference must register and pay the registration fee. The primary presenter must register before the early registration deadline to insure inclusion in the Final Program.
Poster/demos will be grouped together in open exhibition-style; this is an informal event with a circulating audience. Immediate interest plays a big role in whether someone will stop to discuss your poster/demo. Effective posters include large graphics that are easily seen from 15 feet. Type that is 12 pt size or smaller is all but invisible to the audience, and small photos or images on 8-1/2 x 11" sheets are also difficult to see.
The most successful demonstrations are those that are relatively brief to permit easy access for new audiences, and those in which the audience can actually participate.
The Conference does not provide equipment. If you need computers, or any other equipment you will need to bring your own or rent equipment. Bear in mind that overhead projectors and slides are not a workable presentation style as the room is large, well-lit and there is no room for a screen. If you need other equipment, rental information is provided.
Please bring your own office supplies, such as tape, scissors, push pins, etc. The Conference will try to have some on hand, but can't supply everyone.
Shipping: You should have your materials shipped to your hotel room. The Conference staff cannot receive materials for you - do not have them shipped to the registration desk. We cannot accept responsibility for your shipment.
