Oral abstracts will be presented in a panel format and organized by conference themes. The themed panels will be sequenced from 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. during session hours on Tuesday, September 16.

For logistics purposes, presenters will receive information about their assigned panel (primary author names, abstract titles, on-site room location) on Friday, August 15.

Oral abstract presenters will be allocated 10 minutes for their presentation and 5 minutes for questions and answers with the audience. If you exceed your 10-minute presentation time, the question-and-answer period after the presentation will be shortened. If presentations exceed the 15-minute mark, the moderator will interrupt.

Presenters may use MS PowerPoint. This software is the only acceptable electronic presentation format.

For an optimal learning experience, your presentation should contain approximately 1 slide per minute or 10-15 slides total

PowerPoint presentations should be sent to IWLC@adea.org no later than August 30. Also, you are advised to bring a digital and hardcopy version of your presentation.


For presentations that include videos, please use your own laptop for your presentation because the on-site computers may be incompatible with your presentation.

Please plan to be in the room for your session 5 minutes in advance.
