Preparing to Present

ALL SPEAKERS: Before the conference, please practice delivering your presentation in the number of minutes provided, allowing time for questions at the end. You will need to confirm with ISPD whether you plan to attend in person or virtually. All virtual presenters will be asked to pre-record their presentation and have the option to join for live Q&A and discussion. Onsite presenters will be asked to check in with the session moderators a few minutes before the session to confirm your affiliation, and sit near the front of the session room to make transitions easier.

View the preliminary program  schedule.


SPEAKER READY ROOM: The speaker ready room will be located in Room 521 on the same floor as the conference sessions. If you have changes to your presentation, need to review or provide slides onsite, please visit the staff in the speaker ready room. We request your final slides at least 24 hours prior to your presentation.

Uploading PowerPoint Slides
