What to Do When You Arrive at the Conference

  • Check in at the registration desk to pick up your conference badge. A government issued photo ID will be required. Presenters are required to pay conference registration fees and complete the mandatory visit request/entry validation.
  • Test your presentation on the ION computer located near the registration desk. Presentation files display in various ways on different computers. ION provides a "test" computer so you can check fonts, graphics and multimedia content.
  • If you did not upload your presentation to the Abstract Management Portal prior to the conference, ensure you have a copy of your presentation on USB removable media, a DVD or CD, etc., that you can load to the projection laptop for presentation in your session.
  • Upload your final presentation to the Abstract Management Portal. You can do this from your own computer or from the Presenter Upload Station provided near the conference registration desk. 

Mandatory Presenter/Speakers' Breakfast

The primary presenter of each brief (for both primary and alternate presentations) is required to attend the Speakers' Breakfast/Meeting on the day the presentation. The purpose of this breakfast is to allow the Session Chairs to meet each of the presenters, to collect your biographical information, coordinate any last-minute details, and demonstrate audio-visual equipment and the presentation timing system.

CUI Speakers' Breakfasts: Monday-Thursday from 7:30 - 8:15 a.m. in Palm Room 1-4.

On the Day of Your Presentation

Check in with your Session Chairs at the Presenters/Speakers' Breakfast (held on the day of your presentation). Attending the Presenter/Speakers' Breakfast is required to preserve your scheduled presentation time (see "Mandatory Presenter/Speakers' Breakfast").

Have your presentation slides ready. You can bring your slides for presentation using one of the following methods:

  • Bring your slides on a portable hard drive or other removable USB media, or a CD-ROM.
  • Upload your presentation to AMP prior to Friday, June 9. Presentations uploaded by this date will be loaded to the conference laptop prior to the session.
  • Use your own laptop to present. Your laptop must have an HDMI port, or an HDMI adapter, to connect to the conference projector.

If you did not upload your presentation file to the Abstract Management Portal prior to the conference, copy your presentation to the conference laptop in your session room before the session begins. 

For your presentation to be included in the CUI conference proceedings, you will also need to upload your presentation file directly to the Abstract Management Portal and complete the online release form. If you require the signature of a third party, a PDF Copyright Release Form may be uploaded to AMP or emailed to meetings@ion.org.

If you are not in attendance at the speakers' breakfast on the day of your brief, the Session Chairs will allocate your presentation time to another presenter; your briefing will be canceled and will not be included in the CUI conference proceedings.
