ePoster Preparation Information

You will have 12 minutes for your presentation and any Q&A (8-9 minutes presentation time and 3-4 minutes Q&A). Per the guidelines provided, please be sure to include the following information in the header or footer on each slide:

  • Paper number
  • Paper title
  • Presenter's name
  • Slide number (ex: Slide 1 of 10)
  • Only the first and last slide should contain your company name/logo

You will need to submit your PowerPoint presentation to your session chairperson for review prior to the conference. 

Final copies need to be submitted to SPE by the stated due date so they can be preloaded on the presentation stations. Please bring the final version of the presentation with you to the conference on a USB drive, as a backup copy.

When you arrive at the venue, please report to Speaker Check-In to confirm your participation at your scheduled time. We ask that you be prepared to fill in during a technical session should there be a no-show or late withdraw.

You will need to be at the ePoster station 15 minutes before the ePoster session starts. This gives you time to check your presentation and meet your session chairperson.
