General Reminders:

Papers & Reports should not be a copy of a previous presentation made at another conference or published in a trade journal.

Use the provided PowerPoint Template for your presentation, and the Microsoft Word Document Template for Preprint & Proceedings Publication. Please note: The use of a corporate affiliation is permitted one time only as an initial reference. Thereafter the company should be referred to as *the Company* or *the Organization*. This includes within the Abstract, Body and Acknowledgment sections of the Paper or Report as well as on any slides to be used for the Conference. The use of a corporate logo is permitted only once in the presentation, on the opening or first slide. The remaining slides should not have the company’s name or logos.

The Conference Schedule is very full and you will help your Session Chair, yourself and your audience by not exceeding your allotted time:
25 minutes for a PAPER
20 minutes for a REPORT
10 minutes for a DISCUSSION

Design your presentation based on the audio visual equipment available. All session rooms will be set up with computer and projector to handle PowerPoint Presentations displayed through a LCD Projector.

All presentations are combined onto one computer provided by IWC during the session. Therefore, your Session Chair  and Conference Manager will need your PowerPoint/Slide presentation by the published due date.

Speakers must register through the normal registration process. Please note there are no special discount speaker rates.

Each speaker is responsible for his/her own lodging and travel arrangements. There is a block of rooms available (coming soon) at the conference hotel.

As a presenting author, you are requested to attend the Speakers’ Breakfast on the morning of your presentation. This networking opportunity will allow you to meet your Session Chair and fellow speakers in a relaxed and social atmosphere before your session. Please take this opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding how the session will be managed. Each session will have its own table and the conference staff will guide you to your table.

Video Projection System (for computer-based presentations)
Screen, Laser Pointer & Timer

Floor microphones (for audience questions)
