Additional Information

Oral presentations will be 15 minutes, including Q&A. We will be strict on time in order to avoid delays. Please, include your last name in the PowerPoint file name and transfer the PowerPoint file to Florence Leduc,, by May 17th. Only the organizing committee will have access to your presentation prior to the event. PowerPoint files should be uploaded into the computers in the conference room, ready for their presentation.


The poster boards will be displayed online and in the main conference room. Each poster board will fit TWO posters. Therefore, your poster should be no larger than 3' (36") wide x 4' (48") tall. Both sides of the poster boards will be utilized. We will be providing you with push pins to mount your poster. For your convenience, we have created a template for your poster.

Poster presenters will have an opportunity to give a three-minute flash talk prior to a poster session to present his or her research. The challenge: make your thesis topic understandable in clear, concise and convincing. It is the same formula as the 3MT (3-minute thesis, see examples here). You are allowed to have one slide while presenting.
