Schedule & Format:
The detailed Program Schedule will be posted shortly. Unless otherwise noted in the program most presentations are 20 minutes long, please ensure that you don’t run over your allotted time by practicing your talk prior to the conference. 

Meeting Room Standard Equipment:

  • One LCD Projector
  • One laptop computer
  • One lavaliere microphone
  • One presentation remote with laser pointer
  • One screen of appropriate size

Presenters will be required to use the IAWF-supplied laptop computer. The IAWF computer will have the following software installed: Microsoft Power Point 2010, Adobe Acrobat 10.x or higher, QuickTime 7.x or higher, Macromedia Flash Player 11.x or higher, and Internet Explorer 8.x or higher. Please bring your presentation on one of the following media:

Note: If your graphics or video clips are not imbedded into your presentation please bring them as well. If your presentation was created on a MAC and converted to run on a PC, please test it before you come to the meeting. Make sure that the hyperlinks still function. Avoid using a rewritable CD (CD-WR). We’ve encountered compatibility problems with them.

Poster Presentation Guidelines:

The formal poster session is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, July 3. Your poster will be assigned to one of them based on your topic. Authors are expected to be present to discuss their poster during that period.

We will provide 1 poster panel board measuring 2.5 meter tall and 1 meter wide. We recommend that you leave at least a 5 cm margin on all sides of your poster.

We will provide you with pushpins or Velcro to attach your posters to the panel.

Speaker Ready Room
All speakers are required to turn in their presentations in the speaker ready room. Specified hours that will be posted.  This will ensure their presentation can be opened and loaded onto the conference computer system.  All final adjustments can be made at this time.
