Thursday morning, March 25, 2021

Presenter Guidelines


Abstracts should be limited to approximately 350 words. (Honestly, shorter abstracts are more likely to be read by everyone anyway.) Please submit your abstract as a pdf. If your abstract is accepted, the pdf you submit will be exactly what is posted on the conference website and agenda.

Oral Presentations:

Talks will be 15 minutes maximum with 5 minutes for Q&A and the transition to the next speaker for a total of 20 minutes. Please set a watch, clock, countdown timer, etc where you can see it. We will step in to keep things on track if we must.

The meeting will be done via Zoom. You will get details as we get closer. If you have questions please contact Seth Lyman.

Poster Presentations:

Thank you for preparing a poster for the Science for Solutions conference.  We look forward to viewing it and learning about your work.


1.       Because it will take a few days for us to get all the posters uploaded to their respective web pages, please send John Sohl your poster file no later than March 15th.  Earlier would be better.  We can’t guarantee that late posters will be included in the conference.


2.       Please email the poster file to this email will handle files as large as 30 mb.  We discourage files larger than this, since conference attendees will need to download your file to view it.   


3.       The conference website schedule lists each poster with links to both the abstract and the poster itself. Presenters will have 5 minute blocks to discuss their posters with everyone at the conference. 

To accommodate this format, we ask that you submit a poster with these characteristics:


·         The poster file must be in PDF format.


·         The poster file must consist of a single page (don’t send us a presentation with multiple slides).


·         The poster should be in a landscape layout (wider than it is tall).  We prefer an aspect ratio of 16:9 or 16:10, since that is what is used for most computer screens.


·         We prefer posters that are readable as a single page on a medium-sized desktop computer screen (maybe a 17” screen).  Please make your font and images large enough so readers don’t have to view your poster while drastically zoomed in. 


·         We encourage you to embed links to videos, additional tables and figures, or other supplementary material into your poster.
