Forum Presenter Information
Oral Abstract Presentations
Oral abstract sessions will be 90 minutes long and will each include 4-5 presentations. Each presenter will be allotted 10 minutes for his or her presentation plus 5 minutes for questions and answers. The moderator in each oral presentation room will prompt you to keep you on time and will lead a group discussion after all presentations have been given, time permitting. We strongly encourage all presenters to practice their presentation ahead of time. Computers and LCD projectors will be available to support PowerPoint. Please plan to bring your presentation on a jump drive and arrive at the room scheduled for your presentation at least 10 minutes before the session is to begin to load your presentation on the computer.

Poster Session
The poster session is designed for focused interaction between presenters and other attendees. For this reason we encourage you to stay at your poster for the majority of the session. You may have time to see other posters during setup and outside the designated time for the poster session. Posters must be no larger than 45 inches x 45 inches (or 114 cm x 114 cm). Each poster will be assigned one-half of a 4 foot by 8 foot, free standing, two-sided display board. Tacks will be available to affix your poster materials to the board. Please pay careful attention to the poster dimensions. If you are shipping your poster, please send it to yourself at the hotel at which you are staying. 

Posters must be hung by Friday at 5:30pm.The Poster Session & Reception will be held the evening of Friday, June 17, 2016 from 5:45pm - 7:00pm.

Workshops
Workshops will run for 90 minutes. They must be interactive, meaning workshop participants should be expected to actively contribute and have the opportunity to practice ideas or skills within the workshop, and didactic portions of the workshop should be limited and begin with a statement of specific learning objectives. Toward the end of each workshop, participants should be encouraged to tell the group the key point(s) they will take home for reflection and possible implementation. A whiteboard/blackboard, markers/chalk, a computer and a projector will be available in each room. Please plan to bring your presentation on a jump drive and arrive at the room scheduled for your presentation at least 10 minutes before the session is to begin to load your presentation on the computer. If you would like to provide handouts, please bring 30-40 copies for your workshop. If you are interested in having your workshop evaluated, please bring enough of your own evaluations and collect them at the end of your session.

Learning Bursts
Learning bursts are a new addition to the Forum, featuring three (3) individual, 30-minute mini-workshops within a 90-minute time period. A whiteboard/blackboard, markers/chalk, a computer and a projector will be available in each room. Please plan to bring your presentation on a jump drive and arrive at the room scheduled for your presentation at least 10 minutes before the session is to begin to load your presentation on the computer. If you would like to provide handouts, please bring 30-40 copies for your workshop. If you are interested in having your workshop evaluated, please bring enough of your own evaluations and collect them at the end of your session.

Special Interest Groups 
Special interest groups (SIG) are informal forums provided for open communication among professionals sharing similar interests in the field. Presenters will facilitate the discussion and interaction of the group. As this is an informal gathering, audio visual equipment is not provided. 
 
Please note that Special Interest Groups will be held during lunch on Saturday, June 18, 2016.
