Thank you for agreeing to present at the 73rd SWCS International Annual Conference. Below you will find information regarding your presentation. A PDF of information for conference presenters is available.

Poster Presenters: SWCS will provide 4’ (height) x 8’ (width) display boards and pins for your posters. You are responsible for delivery, set-up, and removal of your poster. Poster set-up is Sunday, July 29, from 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM, or 7:00 AM – 7:30 AM on Monday, July 30. You will receive your poster location upon arrival. Poster presenters should plan to be at their poster during all conference breaks as well as the Exhibitor and Poster Reception on Monday, July 30, from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Poster removal is Tuesday, July 31, from 3:30 PM – 6:00 PM. Any posters that have not been removed by 6:00 PM will be discarded. 

Oral Presenters: Please bring an appropriate length PowerPoint (not to exceed 25 slides) on a USB drive to the conference. Remember to consider limiting text on slides and including meaningful graphics and representative images. AV support will be available to assist with transfer of presentations to host computers. Handouts are welcome but are your responsibility. We advise you to report to your presentation room no less than 15 minutes prior to your session start time. We require all presenters to utilize the PC provided in the meeting room, as time is too limited between presentations to switch machines. 

Symposia Presenters: Organizers of symposia sessions will act as the room moderator. We ask that you introduce speakers and act as the time-keeper in the room to be sure sessions begin and end accordingly. You will be assigned an AV support person to assist with presentation uploading and transition. We advise you to report to your presentation room no less then 15 minutes prior to your session start time. A PDF of additional information for symposia organizers is available.

All Presenters: In order to remain on the conference agenda, you must be registered on or before June 20, 2018. Any presenter not registered by June 20 will be removed from the agenda. 

Your abstract will be published in the SWCS Abstract Book following the conference, and your PowerPoint presentation will be shared via SWCS’s SlideShare account. If you do not wish to have your presentation posted to SlideShare, please email
