All participants are required to check-in at the registration tables, where you will sign in and receive meeting materials.


The Administrative Conference Room is reserved as a set-up room for practice during the Colloquium. Access to the practice room is only available during the times the registration desk is staffed.


Each participant competing for an oral presentation award has a 20-minute time slot. Presentations are a maximum of 15 minutes, followed by 3-5 minutes for a question and answer period. The next talk will begin after the completion of the Q&A portion.

Presenters need to report to the meeting room prior to the beginning of their session. A session is defined as the entire period block during which a presentation falls. We ask that participants not arrive just in time to give a presentation or leave immediately after their presentation. Such behavior shows a lack of professionalism. Speakers should attend their whole session. Please maintain the established schedule scrupulously in fairness to persons planning to attend sessions at specific times to hear particular speakers. We will pause for the period allotted if a scheduled speaker fails to appear. Please also note that refreshment breaks do not signal the end of a session.

Please contact the Colloquium Committee to discuss any problems with scheduling that may arise to see if the circumstances warrant a waiver for a portion of your session.


The following items are provided for each session: LCD projector, screen, podium, and microphone. If you need special equipment other than that listed above, please check with the Colloquium Committee to make the necessary arrangements.
