Papers Accepted as Posters
There will be space to display 20 posters during the conference dinner. In deciding whether to accept a submission as a conference paper or a poster, the selection committee will consider whether (i) the paper works well as a poster (its results that can be conveyed with a few striking graphs, figures, or tables) and (ii) the paper is too short for a full presentation. The committee will also reserve poster slots for papers that could not fit into conference sessions because of constraints of time.

Presentations and Discussions
Presenters should create presentations that can be displayed using a computer since other modes of presenting material, such as overhead projectors, will not be available. Again, to ensure that all fonts, symbols, and equations appear the way they were originally typed, please submit your document in pdf format. Although all conference computers will carry Microsoft’s Power Point software, certain fonts may not be displayed as they were intended if the presentation was created using a different version of the software.
Presenters and discussants must submit their presentations electronically before October 22nd. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a back up on a USB stick to the conference. Please use the following naming convention when submitting your presentations and discussions in advance:
X_PRESENT_Y.pdf or X_DISCUSS_Y.pdf,
where X is your session number and Y is your last name.
