Uploading Oral Presentations

All oral presenters in symposia and scientific sessions must upload their presentations online or on-site by the deadlines described below.

You may upload your presentation online before 8:00AM CDT on Thursday, July 13, 2017. You are encouraged to upload your presentation online. If you do not upload it online, you must upload your presentation in the Boston room at the Orlando World Center Marriott before the applicable on-site upload deadline. If you do upload it online, you may verify receipt, modify, or replace your presentation with a revised presentation on-site provided you can do so before the applicable on-site upload deadline.

Presentations are collected solely for preloading purposes. PSA staff will preload all presentations in the session rooms before the beginning of the session. The following is NOT allowed: loading presentation files on the session room laptops or using personal laptop computers for presentations.

Presentations should be in Microsoft PowerPoint format. Adobe PDF format is acceptable but not recommended. Other formats for the main presentation file are not supported. It is strongly recommended that you embed all fonts. Each session room will be equipped with a laptop computer configured with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 or newer, an LCD projector, and voice amplification equipment. The following will NOT be available for presentations: amplified computer audio, internet access, Powerpoint Presenter view (notes viewing mode).

Online Uploads

The online upload deadline has passed. You must now upload your presentation in the Boston room at the Orlando World Center Marriott by the applicable on-site upload deadline (see below).

Please bring your presentation file(s) on a USB stick/drive. The deadline for uploading and making changes to each presentation is based on the day/time of the session it will be presented in.
