Presenter Documents & Uploads

Session Presentation Information

Session chairs will follow the Lead Slides created for their session. The session chair will welcome attendees, cover some logistics for in-person and virtual attendees, thank the sponsors and then introduce the session. Each speaker will give a live presentation after they are introduced by the session chair. All questions will be held until the end for the group Q&A. Once the Q&A has concluded the session chair will thank everyone and send the symposium off to break. 

Presentation Information

  • Your presentation will be 15 minutes in length, not including Q&A time. Please remember to practice your presentation to ensure it stays within the time limit. It is vital everyone stays on-time so that all presenters receive their share of time and questions are not cut short. Moderators will interrupt your presentation if you begin to go over-time. 
  • If you will be showing a PowerPoint to attendees, you will need to submit it to us before the conference. PowerPoint presentations are due February 29th at 5PM PST. The presentation must be in widescreen 16:9 format and saved as a PPTX file and saved as your full name. Your PowerPoint will be pre-loaded onto conference computers and you will control it through a slide advancer that you will point at the back of the room.
  • Once you have submitted your presentation, any substitutions or alterations will need to come to the tech table the day of the event on a flash drive.
  • If you are willing to share a copy of your PowerPoint with the audience, you may upload a PDF copy of it to the Virtual Platform.


During your session, presentations will occur back-to-back. Then the presenters of that session will participate in a group Q&A. Questions will be submitted from the audience via the platform. The platform will accept questions submitted through the phone app or the computer web browser. If an attendee does not have access to either of these, they can submit a question to a volunteer in the back of the room to be added to the platform for consideration. Moderators will have full discretion on which questions to ask live of presenters.
