An oral paper is typically given by one presenter with 15 minutes allowed for the presentation and discussion. A session moderator will introduce the speakers and monitor time limits.


Acceptance of a submission as a poster is equivalent to acceptance as an oral paper. Posters should be approximately 30" x 40" and prepared so that the information is readable from a distance of 3 - 4 feet. Authors can prepare additional handouts summarizing their work. A poster session is composed of a number of posters on display for two hours. An author is expected to be available during that time to answer questions.
