Conflict of Interest

All authors are expected to disclose any commercial affiliations as well as consultancies, stock or equity interests, and patent-licensing arrangements that could be considered to pose a conflict of interest in their oral or poster presentations.

Oral Presentations:

Please provide your presentation as a Powerpoint file on a USB memory stick to Mike, the AV tech in the room. Please put the last name of the presenter FIRST in the file name; that will help keep things organized, and load no later than the break before your session. Keep in mind that there will be a strict 12-minute time limit. A PC with Powerpoint 2019 will be at the podium. The default position is “Presenter mode,” where notes and the next slide are visible to the presenter (but not the projector). The PC at the podium should be used, if at all possible (as it is faster and more reliable), but a switcher will also be provided, allowing the presenters to use their own Mac or PC. Mac and HDMI adapters will be available.

Poster Presentations

All Poster Presenters have been sent a Presentation Number which will be included in the final program and will be posted on the poster boards in the Morgan A-C Ballroom. All presenting authors of even number presentations should be at their posters during Monday’s poster session, presenters of odd number presentations should be at their posters during Tuesday’s poster session

Posters should be a maximum of 3’ (90 cm) wide X 4’ (121 cm) long.

We will have thumb tacks available onsite.


Scientific presentations, posters, and written abstracts are confidential, unpublished research. Abstracts and findings should not be cited without express permission from the authors and a “personal communication” designation. Slides and posters should not be photographed without express permission from the authors.

Posters should be set up during the morning coffee break on Monday, July 1st and remain on the boards through the Poster Session 2 on Tuesday, July 2nd at 3:00 PM and should be removed promptly following the Tuesday afternoon poster session as the boards will be dismantled and removed beginning at 3:30 PM on Tuesday. In addition to the 2 poster sessions, the posters will be available for viewing by participants during the mid-morning coffee break, lunch, poster session and afternoon break on Monday and during the morning coffee and mid-morning coffee break on Tuesday.
