Oral Presentations:

Regular oral presentations and student competition talks should be 13 minutes long with two additional minutes allowed for questions, for a total of 15 minutes per presentation. At 11 minutes, moderators will stand up, as an indication that there are 2 minutes of speaking time left. At 13 minutes, moderators will give a verbal reminder to the speakers that they have two minutes left to finish their presentations. Moderators will strictly adhere to the 15 minute time limit; there are multiple concurrent sessions being conducted at the meeting and all must run on schedule.


Audio-Video Centre:

The Audio-Visual Centre is located in a room to be announced. This location is where presentation files will be uploaded onto our computer system and the room will have facilities for speakers to review their talks. The A-V Centre will be open on the following schedule:


Sunday, November 6, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM; 4:30 – 8:00 PM
Monday, November 7, 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Tuesday, November 8, 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Wednesday, November 9, 7:00 – 8:00; 10:00 – 10:30 AM


We require that presentation files be uploaded at least one day prior to your presentation. Speakers who upload their presentation files while their session is in progress will have the uploading time deducted from their 15-minute speaking allotment. Please use a Memory Stick (USB thumb drives) to transfer files. The 2011 JAM will be using Microsoft Power Point or Adobe Reader for all presentations. We will be operating PC-based computers running in Windows7. You will not be able to use your own computer. It is each speaker's responsibility to ensure that your file format is compatible with Microsoft Power Point (Office 2007 version) or Adobe Acrobat (Reader) 9 for PCs, and that your memory stick is readable on PC laptops.


Files must be named in the following format:
Last Name_First Initial (Listed Presenter)_Date_Session_Start Time_Room
Example: Sprat_J_Nov7_President’s Prize1_0830h_Nelson (note:
(n.b. colons, eg 8:30, are not allowed in ppt or pptx filenames)


Poster Presentations:

The posters presentations are located in a room to be announced in the Conference level of the venue. Posters can be put up on Sunday, November 6th from Noon -10 PM. Pins will be provided and presenters are requested to place their posters in the areas assigned to them. All poster presenters are asked to be at their posters for the Dedicated Poster Session on Tuesday, November 8th from 3-4 PM.

All posters must be taken down by 10 PM on Tuesday, November 8. Posters cannot remain up overnight, as the room is needed for oral presentations on Wednesday morning. Please note that any posters remaining up after 10:00 PM on Tuesday might not be returned to authors. The poster size limit is 44" x 44".
