Presentation Instructions

Poster Presenter Instructions:

In order to advertise the posters, we have allocated time in the program called “Poster Session oral Introductions”. All posters will be asked to identify a single spokesperson. That person is asked  to introduce  their work on the day their poster is scheduled. All poster presenters will be allocated no more than 1 minute  to invite people to their poster.

We are asking for all poster presenters to create 1 slide addressing:

  1. Title of the poster
  2. Authors and affiliated  institutions
  3. A bullet or two addressing : Purpose of the work or key result.

We are asking that the 1 slide be sent in pdf format to  no later than July 22nd.  Email your 1 slide to  with the subject heading “Poster Invitation”.  Please cc Frank Graziani at

For the Poster Session oral Introductions” session, we will store all 1 slide introductions on our laptop and ask all presenters to come to the front of the room so we can minimize the time between speakers.

For the actual poster presentation, poster boards will be 4 feet by 8 feet. We will supply pins to secure your poster. Your poster may be many small sheets, one large sheet or any combination so that it does not exceed the 4X8 size. You are responsible for printing out your poster and bringing it to the room.

Speaker Instructions:

SCCS2014 will make available to all speakers both a MAC and a PC to show your slides. We will be presenting all talks from our computers. PDF is the preferable format but we will accept PowerPoint.

We would like to have your slides NO LATER THAN 5:00 PM  THE DAY BEFORE YOU SPEAK  so we can load them on to our computers.  All talks should be emailed to with the subject heading “SCCS2014 Slides”. Please cc Frank Graziani at 

If necessary, we can load your talk via a thumb drive onto our laptop prior to the start of your session. We will also have a MAC and PC available for you to preview your talk. The location of the MAC and PC for previewing will be specified in the program.
