Late-Breaking Sessions

For general information about the technical sessions, contact the Technical Program co-chairs: Jeff Knott (Cordilleran Section GSA) and/or Hilario Camacho (Pacific Section AAPG).

 
Organization of the Oral Sessions:
Most of the AAPG and GSA oral theme sessions will consist of 20-minute presentations (roughly 15 minutes for talk and 5 minutes for questions/discussion).  Most SPE talks will be in 30-minute time slots. For the SPE sessions (T30- T43), this may not be the final program.  Please refer to the program addendum in your registration packet or at the registration booth for the final SPE presentation listing. Additionally, any changes after publication of this program will be posted at http://www.spe.org/events/wrm/pages/schedule/tech_program/index.php
 
 
Presentation Hardware and Software:
In all sessions, only one laptop computer running Windows XP operating system with PowerPoint 2007 software, one LCD projector, and one screen will be provided.  Speakers will not be able to use their own computer for presentations. All speakers should double-check their presentations, especially speakers who built their talks on another platform (e.g., Mac), by loading and running it on the computers in the speaker ready room to ensure it runs properly.

Uploading your presentations:
Plan to upload your presentations via a USB drive or CD in the Speaker Ready Room (Grand Salon D).  For morning sessions, please have your presentations loaded by no later than 7:15 a.m. on the morning of the talk, but loading the presentation the afternoon before the talk is preferred.  Speaker Ready Room will open at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday.  For afternoon sessions, please have your presentations loaded by 12 noon on the day of the talk.  Speaker Ready Room volunteers will be available to help with uploading your talk.
 
Poster sessions:
Poster presentations will take place in the Platinum Ballroom. For morning sessions, posters should be displayed from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon.  Presenters should be present between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.  For afternoon sessions, posters should be displayed from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Presenters should be present between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m.  All posters must fit on 8 ft. x 4 ft. display board using push pins or Velcro (provided).  Electrical connections and internet service are not available in the poster area of the Ballroom.
