Presenter Information - ACCI Conference 2022

If you are presenting an Oral Concurrent Session:

  • These are the traditional oral sessions as in past ACCI conferences. There are multiple presentations during each 90-minute period.
  • There are three rooms with presentations taking place concurrently.
  • Each room has a moderator who will keep you on time.
  • About ten (10) minutes is reserved at the end of each 90 minutes for discussion across all presentations. Please don't ask for questions at the end of your time, as it may decrease the presentation time for subsequent presenters. The moderator will manage the discussion.
  • If there are three presentations during the 90 minutes minus 5 minutes for the Moderator to welcome and introduce, minus another 10 minutes for discussion at the very end of all oral presentations, that allows 75 minutes or 25 minutes for each of the three presentations.
  • Please let us know if you intend to use video or sound from the computer as part of your presentation as we must plan for additional equipment.
  • What AV will be in the room? Each room will have a Windows computer, screen, projector, cart, and connectors.
    • Please bring your presentation on a thumb drive for loading on the computer as soon as you arrive in the presentation room (do not plan to present from a cloud server as there will be no internet).
    • Breakout rooms will not have microphones.
  • It is required that you use our template for your presentation slides here.

If you are presenting a Featured Research Poster Session:

  • Previews! You will have one minute (60-seconds) to give a brief description of your poster at a general session. Please prepare this short introduction ahead of time and practice it so that you can actually do this in 60-seconds. Start with I am (your name) and I am from (organization/institution). Do NOT list all authors at this time. State your poster title. Describe what it is about. We will time you! You will line up in number order. Look for the time you will present your 60-second overview in the conference schedule.
  • What size is the poster board? The Boards are 4 ft x 6 ft and this year you may use the whole space.
  • Where do I find my poster number?
    • Look in the conference schedule for your poster number that will start with a 1 for first session in the morning and 2 for second session in the afternoon. Poster Boards will have numbers on them, in sequential order, so that other attendees can find your poster easily. Only put your poster up on the board that has your assigned number!
  • There are two Featured Research Sessions.
    • FRS I (poster numbers 100's): Present your one-minute at the Opening General Session on Thursday, May 19. Please sit up front. You will present your one-minute in poster number order. Your session is from 8:00 am - 8:50 am on Friday, May 20, and you are expected to stand by your poster during that time and discuss it with other attendees. Breakfast is served. Take down your poster at the end of the session.
    • FRS II (poster numbers 200's): Present your one-minute at the General Session 2 on Friday, May 20. Please sit up front. You will present your one-minute in poster number order. Your Poster Session, Conversation and Libation, is from 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm on Friday, May 20, and you are expected to stand by your poster during that time and discuss it with other attendees. Take down your poster immediately at the end of the session. Food, beer, and wine are featured during this special poster session.
  • The poster may be a maximum 4 feet high (1.22 m) by 6 feet wide (1.83 m) as this is the dimension of the board on which you will pin your poster.
  • We will provide Velcro or pins to pin up your poster.
  • As there will not be electricity or a table space, please do not bring a computer. Tablets are okay, but the focus and main points should be on your poster. If you want to provide a URL to your webpage or research, print it on a business card that you can hand out.
  • It is a very good idea to bring your business cards with you and to have them easy to reach and share.
  • It is required that you use our Poster Template here that already contains the right sized logo.
  • It is suggested that you hand-carry your poster with you to the conference.
  • This is a sample of what the poster board will look like:
