Information for authors and presenters

Information for authors, chairs, and committees: instructions, deadlines, and tips

If your presentation was canceled or you are unable to present due to the weather, please email your program coordinator if you have not already heard from them. We are working to reschedule as many presentations as possible, and we will provide an alternative solution for folks who cannot travel due to the weather. Thank you for your patience!

Once onsite, to upload your talk please go to Speaker Check-in at 6 B in the Convention Center, upper level.
