Presentation Formats

Submitting authors had the option of proposing an oral single presenter presentation or poster presentation.

Oral Late-Breaker Single Presenter

  • These sessions will have one presenting author and will include lighting round presentations (approximately five minutes allotted for each presentation).

Late-Breaker Poster

  • Poster presentations will be presented in-person and will be limited to a maximum of eight feet wide by four feet high (8’w x 4’h). Posters should emphasize visual materials, such as photographs, drawings, and graphic representations of statistical data. Text material should be limited to summarizing key points. The use of color is welcome but not essential. It is also recommended that you divide your presentation into the following categories: abstract, background, methods, results, and conclusions. QR codes may be used to direct attendees to a written summary of your poster presentation, related full-length papers, or relevant agency or programmatic websites. Poster presenters will be expected to stand by their posters during their assigned poster session(s).
