Uploading Oral Presentations

ALL oral presenters in symposia and scientific sessions must upload their presentations online or on-site by the deadlines described below. 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 of presentation files on the session room laptops by non-PSA staff or using personal laptops or devices for presentations.

You are encouraged to upload your presentation online. You may do so before 11:59pm CDT on Wednesday, July 10, 2019. If you do not upload it online by that deadline, you must upload your presentation in the Arobase room on the third floor of the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth 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 that you do so before the applicable on-site upload deadline.

Presentation Format

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. For accurate text rendering, it is strongly recommended that you embed all fonts. The screens will have a 16:9 (widescreen) native aspect ratio.

Each session room will be equipped with:
  • a laptop computer configured with Microsoft PowerPoint
  • an LCD projector
  • voice amplification equipment
The following will NOT be available for presentations:
  • amplified computer audio
  • internet access
  • Powerpoint Presenter view (notes viewing mode)
