Workshop presentations are 2-hours in length.
All meeting rooms will have projectors, screens, microphones & laptops. Please come prepared with your presentation on a flash drive. We recommend limiting panel presentations to no more than 4 speakers total. Please plan your workshop around the limitation of the presentation room.
Poster materials will be displayed on a 4′ x 8′ poster board supplied by USCHA. Since a poster format is best when your material can easily be communicated visually, text should be limited to brief statements.
