The following instructions are only for in-person plenary and concurrent session oral presenters. Online oral presenter information will be available by February 25 on the For Presenters landing page. Workshop speakers should coordinate with the workshop organizer(s) for presentation instructions. If you will not be able to attend the conference in person and will need to present online, please notify Anne Marie Mahoney (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
New this year – All in-person speakers (other than workshop speakers) must check-in at the Speaker Check-in Room (Triton) the day before their presentation to upload and test their talk. You will not be able to upload your talk in the meeting room.
You will be able to test the equipment, view your slides, and run through your presentation if necessary. Technical support will be there to help you. On the day of the presentation, speakers should arrive at the meeting room (see the schedule of events to find out where your presentation room is) 30 minutes prior to the beginning of their session to check in with the session chair and for up-to-date instructions.
The speaker check-in room (Triton) will be open at the following times:
Tuesday, March 15: 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Wednesday, March 16: 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Thursday, March 17: 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Friday, March 18: 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Saturday, March 19: 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
To keep the session on time and allow people to move between concurrent sessions, the session chair may alert you as follows:
For the Plenary sessions, the session chairs will select and read attendee questions that are submitted in the Q&A window as well as questions posed by the in-person audience. For the concurrent sessions, the session chairs will facilitate the questions asked by the in-person attendees. Remember to check your talk in the app as people may leave you a question there as well.
Technical support will be monitoring your presentation from the speaker check-in room. There will also be a large help button on the podium that you can hit if you run into a problem.
Masks should be worn at all times when inside the conference center. That includes during your talk. Hand sanitizer will be available on stage for you to access when leaving the stage after your talk. For more information on health and safety policies at the meeting, please check our Conference Policies.
You can look up your presentation time on the Author Abstract Assignments page. All presentation times are shown in Pacific Daylight Time.
You must register for the conference by February 18 to confirm your participation.
All oral presentations will be recorded and made available to registrants in the Conference App through April 8, 2022.
You will use the computer at the podium for your presentation. You will not be able to use your own computer.
Q&A will be handled two ways for the plenary sessions. There will be audience microphones for the in-person attendees to ask questions. Those who are participating online will be able to post a question in the Zoom Q&A. The session chair will select questions from the Q&A and in-person audience as time allows. All participants will also be able to leave a question for you in the Conference App, so be sure to check your listing on the app to see if there are questions for you after your session.
For the concurrent sessions, the session chairs will select questions from the in-person audience as time allows. All participants will also be able to leave a question for you in the Conference App, so be sure to check your listing on the app to see if there are questions for you after your session.
We encourage presenters to use color blind-friendly palettes and accessible fonts. An online tool such as Coblis will help you prepare posters that are more accessible to all.
All oral presentations will be available for registered attendees to view online until April 8, 2022. Sharing of results without permission is a violation of the Code of Conduct, but you should be aware that we cannot monitor whether online attendees take photographs, screenshots, audio recordings, or video recordings during your presentation.
All registrants agree to abide by the GSA Conferences Code of Conduct. Our Code of Conduct was established to communicate a transparent set of standards and guidelines for acceptable behavior at GSA Conferences and to provide a positive, safe, and welcoming environment for all attendees. Note that all sessions will be moderated and actively monitored for disruptive behavior. Any attendees disrupting the session in person or online will be removed.
