The oral presentation time slots are 25 minutes each. Please prepare a presentation for 20 minutes and leave 5 minutes for setting up, and questions & answers. Please strictly observe this time limit in order to facilitate people moving between sessions.
All oral presenters are required to prepare PowerPoint slides for their visual presentations. You do not need to submit a hard copy of your slides and you do not need to bring a computer onsite, as all presentations will be pre-loaded onto the Seminar computer that will be in your session room. A template for the oral presentation can be found on the Author Central page of the conference website or can be downloaded directly by clicking here.
Speakers are encouraged to upload their presentations prior to arrival onsite. Please follow the instructions at the ECCE presenter upload site, linked below.
You may also edit your presentation during speaker ready room hours. If you have edits to your presentation, you will need to re-upload your pre¬sentation by 4pm the day prior for speakers presenting before 12noon or by 12noon for speakers presenting after 1pm.
If you have edits to your presentation after the cutoff time listed above, you will need to bring your updated presentation with you on a flash drive directly to the session room.
