Oral presentations will be 20 minutes in length (15 min. for presentation and 5 min. for questions and discussion). Oral presentations will use a single digital projector with standard presentation software. One overhead projector will be provided in each room. Use of 35 mm slides will be permitted only under special circumstances and must be requested 30 days in advance by contacting the technical program chair, Rob Young.
