Oral Presentation Guidelines

Please e-mail your presentation slides abstracts@syndromic.org no later than Monday, January 21, 2019.  Please name your presentation as: [your last name]_oral.ppt -- for example "Smith_oral.ppt".

We ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your session, so that you can load your presentation onto the laptop before the session begins. The copy you send to ISDS will be used as a backup or emergency copy, meaning that if you make edits to your final version, that is fine and it will be the copy you may load on the computer before the session.

Each presenter will be allotted a total of 15 minutes, including time for questions.  Arrange your talk so that your presentation lasts no longer than 12 minutes, with an additional three minutes available to answer questions. The session moderator will serve as a timekeeper; promptly respond to the moderator’s requests to wrap up your presentation, so that the concurrent oral sessions stay on schedule. There will be a very brief transition time between talks -- your cooperation in adhering to the designated presentation times is appreciated.

All session rooms will be equipped with an LCD projector, computer, microphones and a screen. Presentations should be in Microsoft PowerPoint. Please bring your presentation on a USB flash drive.

Authors are strongly encouraged to:

  • Bring a duplicate copy of their presentation in electronic format
  • Ensure that all font sizes are large enough to be read from the back of the room
  • Ensure that line widths are thick enough to be seen from the back of the room
  • Ensure that color choices provide high contrast
  • Rehearse beforehand to colleagues who will give you feedback

For any questions or issues prior to the conference, please contact Mark Krumm.
