Oral Presentations

If you have been awarded an oral presentation, you must also participate in your assigned Poster Session (see below).

All presentations should be taken to the speaker preview room at least two hours prior to the time of your talk and loaded onto the network via the Albuquerque Convention Center (ACC) technicians. The Speaker Ready Room is the Tijeras room, located on the second floor of the ACC. Do not take your presentation directly to the session room, please take it to the Speaker Ready Room. Presentations should be in PowerPoint format.

Due to CME Guidelines, ALL oral presentations must include a disclosure slide at the beginning of your presentation.  If there is a real or perceived conflict of interest pertaining to your work, an announcement must be made prior to your oral presentation and also displayed on your poster
All oral presentations are allotted ten (10) minutes for presentation and two (2) minutes for discussion.

Only one paper or poster may be read or presented by the same author at the Meeting, although a presenter may be a co-author of any number of papers.  The material must not have been published prior to submission of the abstract or presented at any national meeting prior to the date of presentation at the SID Annual Meeting.  Simultaneous submission of the same abstract to other meetings is prohibited. 
Please note the SID Program is extremely busy, so you must be well prepared and keep to time. Session Moderators have been instructed to keep to the timetable and if you speak over your time you may be asked to finish prior to the end of your talk.
The Speaker Ready Room will be in room “Tijeras” within the ACC.  There will be resources to display only IBM-compatible presentations in the current versions of PowerPoint or earlier software versions and on Windows 2013 platforms (or earlier).  The SID will again offer web-enabled presentation delivery and management system that will allow presenters the opportunity to upload their presentations directly to the uploading service prior to arrival on-site at the meeting.  Electronic pre-submission uploads are not mandatory.   Presenters with large, embedded video movie files within their PowerPoint presentations are asked to deliver their presentation media to the speaker ready room for review and loading onto the Meeting server in person 24 hours prior to presentation. 

New Features for Concurrent Sessions
·         A new translational concurrent minisymposia session has been created.  Titled Interdisciplinary Spotlight: Atopic Dermatitis, this session has been organized around a theme rather than a category to include a full range of bench to bedside approaches.  This session will take place on Thursday, May 9, 2014 from 2:00-5:00 pm in the Kiva Auditorium, inside the ACC.
·         Immediately following the afternoon Concurrent Sessions, there will be roundtable discussions among the moderators, presenting authors, and attendees.  These conversations will provide time for further questions about the work presented during the session.  Light snacks and refreshments will also be provided. 

Poster Presentations

Poster presenters should bring a hard copy poster to the meeting and submit an e-poster (information forthcoming) prior to the meeting. Posters must be no more than 3'8" vertical x 3'9" horizontal (112 cm x 114 cm) in size.  Posters are to be installed beginning Wednesday, May 7, 2014 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. in the NE Exhibit Hall located on ground level of the Albuquerque Convention Center.  All posters will be displayed for the duration of the Meeting.  Posters can be removed after the last poster session on Saturday, May 10th.  You are responsible for bringing push pins, Velcro strips... to secure your poster to the assigned Poster Boards.  There will not be any made available by the meeting organizers.


Poster Printing Service

The SID has also entered into agreement with ScholarOne to provide poster printing services that is available for anyone to take part in.  Emails were sent to everyone who submitted an abstract to the meeting, giving instructions on how to upload your poster file and have the poster printed and shipped on your behalf to the Annual Meeting site.  The poster(s) will be available for you on-site for pickup.  There will be a charge for this service.
