Information for Presenters
We are looking for more images from conference presenters we can put up on our rotating screen at the FVM conference. This can be anything from data figures (brains? plots of well-fitting models?) to stimuli (including animations!) to photos of cool set-ups (stereoscopes? eyetrackers?) or even images of dorky vision scientists hanging out. Please send them to Michelle Giarmarco. Include a brief description/caption and image credit. A bit last-minute is OK -- we know your images might not be ready until your talks and posters are.
Unregistered presenters will not be able to present their talk/poster and the associated abstracts will not be published following the meeting. Presenters who are not in attendance at their alloted time will not have their abstracts published following the meeting.
The usable area of the poster boards is 6 feet (72 inches/182 cm) wide by 4 feet (48 inches/121 cm) tall. Your poster can be smaller than this, but should not be larger.
Posters are assigned to present on either Friday or on Saturday. It is expected that you put your poster up prior to the morning session on the day you are assigned to present, and that you are present at your poster during the allotted time.
Poster boards will be numbered so you can find your assigned space (see here for poster numbers). Note that due to last-minute program additions, your specific number may have changed recently (your assigned day did not change.)
Please remove your poster at the end of the day. Posters that are unclaimed by the end of the meeting on Sunday afternoon will be discarded.
All talks will be presented from the Orin Smith Auditorium podium computer. This is a PC running Windows/Powerpoint. It has internet connectivity and you will be able to use presenter view if needed. You will not be able to use your own computer. Note: we'll have a Mac available for presentations built in Keynote.
To upload your talk, you can send it to us in advance (use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org) or use a USB drive to transfer it when you arrive. It is strongly recommended you send us your talk in advance, at least 2 days prior, to prevent A/V issues and delays.
If you send a talk in advance: Please send it to us at least 2 days prior to your scheduled session. If your file is large, we recommend uploading a Powerpoint or Zip to Google Drive, Dropbox, or other file-sharing service, and sharing the link with us. If you have videos or animations, you can send them along too, and we'll download them directly to the computer.
If you prefer to use a USB drive when you arrive: Please bring it in during morning coffee (7:30-8 AM daily) or during one of the scheduled breaks prior to your talk. We'll have a USB stick on hand in case of emergencies, but please plan on bringing your own in case this one fails.
We will check all talks sent early to make sure they work at the podium computer. Speakers are also welcome to test out their talks during any of the morning coffee or break sessions. Priority will always be given to the speakers who are in the session immediately following the break.
Contributed session talks: Each session consists of six talks, allotted 15 minutes per person. Talks should be 12 minutes, followed by 3 minutes for questions.
Invited session talks: Each session consists of four talks, allotted 25 minutes per person. Talks should be 20 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for questions.
