The AAPG Executive Committee has established that presenters who fail to show up for their scheduled presentations without notifying AAPG of their cancellation, at least five (5) weeks in advance of the start date of the program, will not be allowed to present papers or posters at any AAPG-sponsored technical meetings for a term of three (3) years.
A complimentary breakfast buffet is provided for you on the day of your oral presentation at 6:45 a.m. in Hall D, Level 1 of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
It is important you attend the breakfast. This will provide you the opportunity to meet the session chair(s) and the other presenters in your session and give your biographical information to the session chair. You will receive important information from the Technical Program Committee as well as view a presentation from the audio visual company regarding the AV equipment in the session room and the timing system.
Please arrive at your session meeting room at least 10 minutes before the start of your session. Introduce yourself to the projectionist (who will be wearing a Freeman badge). Take time to familiarize yourself with the setup at the lectern. There will be a mouse on the lectern that will allow you to control/advance (left click will move forward, right click will move backwards) the slides during your presentation. The mouse pointer can also be used in lieu of a laser pointer.
A lectern microphone will be provided in each meeting room. Speak directly into the microphone in a normal voice and do not handle the microphone while speaking. There should be a comfortable distance between your mouth and the microphone. If you turn away from the microphone, the audience may not hear your voice.
A confidence monitor will be provided in each meeting room. It will be located either at the head table or placed strategically in front of the lectern.
Single screen electronic presentations will be the only format available.
Each lecture room is equipped with the following:
- One (1) high-intensity data projector
- One (1) laptop computer
- One (1) large screen
