Whether it is your first time presenting or you're a pro, here are some tips for presenting your research at an ACS National Meeting.
All presenters are required to register and pay the appropriate registration fee to present and attend the meeting. Invited speakers should contact their symposium organizer or division program chair to clarify terms of their invitation.
Sci-Mix presenters may begin poster setup at 7:15 PM. Each presenter may be accompanied by one assistant only, and both people are required to arrive together when entering the hall. After exiting, presenters will not be permitted to reenter the hall until the session begins at 8 PM.
The use of any device to capture images (e.g., cameras and camera phones) or sound (e.g., tape and digital recorders) or stream, upload or rebroadcast speakers or presentations is strictly prohibited at all official ACS meetings and events without the express written consent from the ACS.
Speakers should arrive in their presentation rooms at least 30 minutes before their scheduled speaking time. Poster presenters should set up their poster at least 30 minutes before the start of their poster session.
Each technical session meeting room will be equipped with the following:
As a presenter, you may use the speaker ready rooms to preview your presentation and ensure capability with the LCD projectors. We strongly recommend that all presenters come to the speaker ready room the day before their presentation. The hours of operation are 3 – 5 PM Saturday and 7 AM – 6 PM Sunday through Thursday.
ACS will provide a “Standard HDMI Cable” in all meeting rooms. Therefore, it is imperative for speakers to supply their own Mac or windows-based laptop computer’s dongle/adaptor to connect to the “Standard HDMI Cable”. If unsure of the correct adaptor, the laptop connectivity specifications can be found on the computer manufacturer’s website.
Apple laptops will need a “dongle” to connect to the HDMI cable.
