Oral vs. poster
  • Oral presentations are 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions.
  • Posters: We're doing three things  to make posters especially appealing: 
    • All posters will remain on display throughout the workshop. 
    • They will be displayed in the same large room where we eat together Monday and Tuesday. This will encourage  informal discussions in addition to the scheduled time for the talk. 
    • Posters are big: board size is 72 X 48 inches (182 X 122 cm). 
  • Please indicate whether you prefer an oral or poster session.
  • The number of oral presentations will be limited. If your group submits more than one abstract for an oral presentation, please send us a list of the talk titles, rank ordered according to your preference for oral presentation. This will help us choose which talks to assign to oral vs. poster sessions.
  • You may request that your presentation be positioned before or after another speaker.
  • There is no assurance that we can meet all your requests for oral vs. poster or for positioning your paper.

The abstracts will be published as PDF files at this website, in lieu of a published proceedings.
