Presentation Format & Details:

  • IMAPS does not require you to use a conference powerpoint template. You are able to use your regular company/preferred powerpoint templates.
  • Please include the IMAPS show name and dates on your template and/or an IMAPS logo.
  • Poster Session/Information (if applicable): The poster session is planned to be an INTERACTIVE presentation. This means you do not start and complete a scheduled talk without interruption like in a regular/oral session. Speakers should have talking points and be at their poster throughout the entire session. You can "present" your scheduled materials, but more often the attendees will review your slides and ask questions. Or you can watch them and talk to them depending on which slide they are on. Authors may either print out each of their powerpoint slides on regular paper and tack them up in order, or prepare a large poster (or 2 even). Recommended poster size is typically 3x4 feet. IMAPS staff will provide tacks to secure your print outs. The session is first-come-first-serve so there are not assigned poster boards/locations. POSTER SETUP FROM: (TBD).
  • Dress Code: There is no official "dress code" for IMAPS Conferences. We ask you to be BUSINESS CASUAL or whatever more you prefer. We do not recommend casual attire.
  • Session rooms will be equipped with: Screen, projector, podium, IMAPS laptop (with Microsoft Windows and recent OFFICE suite), microphone, and slide remote/laser pointer.
  • All session presentations are 25 minutes followed by 5 minutes for Questions
  • You are required to load your powerpoint/presentation onto the session laptop yourself using your USB drive.
  • Speak with your session chair if you need assistance.
  • About the Session: Sessions begin with Session Chairs making general announcements. Session Chairs will then introduce speakers by reading BIOs. Speaker will present for 25 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for questions. Session Chairs will thank the speakers. This process is repeated for each speaker in the session. Many sessions will take refreshment breaks (see program).
  • Photography is not permitted in the session rooms.
