To save time during the sessions, all presentations will be made from the session chairís laptop. Speakers should make arrangements with their session chair to load the slides onto the chairís laptop in advance. It is recommended that you provide both PowerPoint and PDF files in case of difficulties with one or the other. Also, have the files available on a USB memory stick.

If possible, speakers should email their slides (or at least a draft) to the session chair a week or so prior to the conference. The chair can check that the slides display correctly on his or her laptop. Chairs may also be able to provide feedback on the slides if you wish.

Posters

Each poster will have a designated bulletin board during the assigned poster session. Each short paper will also have a designated bulletin board at the subsequent poster session.

Posters should be mounted on the boards prior to the start of the session. Push pins will be available. Authors must remove their poster prior to the subsequent poster session or (for poster session 3) by lunch on Tuesday.

A typical poster will consist of 9 or 12 slides, mounted individually or printed on a large poster. The title and author list should appear at the top.

Posters must be less than 8 x 4 feet to fit on the boards.

The hotel does not have printing facilities and FPGA will not pay for poster printing.  So authors should bring their posters. If necessary, there is a print shop near the hotel; information is available at http://www.copykingmonterey.com.
