There will be one Poster Presentation session on October 7, from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm. Presenters will need to bring their posters with them to the conference. Poster set up will begin at 11 am in the Student Union Building Atrium. Posters must be picked up by 4:00pm.

Oral Presentations

Oral Presentations will be held on October 8, from 9:15am – 5:00 pm. All presentations will be held at the University of New Mexico Student Union Building. Each presenter will have 12 minutes to present their research with 3 minutes for questions and comments immediately following. Each session will consist of 2-4 presentations. Evaluation forms will be issued to audience members and faculty panel during sessions and will be given to each presenter following their session.

PowerPoint Requirements

All PowerPoint Presentations (for use during the Oral Presentation sessions) MUST BE BROUGHT to the conference registration on individual USB flash-drives. Presenters should bring their external USB to the registration desk on the evening of October 6, or in the morning registration on October 7, 2010.

Presentations should use the following file name format: LastName_FirstNameFinalv1.ppt

EXAMPLE: McNair_RonaldFinalv1.ppt

This format allows uniformity in the presentations. Please check your presentation before the conference to ensure it operates properly. Some concerns in the past have shown that embedded audio and video components in files have had difficulty opening. Web access will be available to use as part of the Oral Presentations. All presentations need to be compatible with the 2007 version of Microsoft PowerPoint. If you need speakers, please let us know.

Please do not forget to bring your presentation!
