Presentation Guidelines

  • Speakers must submit presentations in advance to the Speaker Ready Room at Westin Bayshore Hotel a minimum of 6 hours in advance of their presentation. Please plan ahead.
  • An ISSVA PowerPoint Template is an optional way to enhance your presentation and can be downloaded here (PPT). The PowerPoint slide size is widescreen (16:9). All material must be contained within the PowerPoint presentation.
  • A projector, monitor screen, and slide advancer will be provided in each session room. Flash drives, personal computers or changing of the AV equipment in the session room is not permitted. Should your presentation contain embedded video(s) there will be no audio/sound available.
  • Macintosh users please convert your presentation file to a PC-formatted readable USB flash drive/thumb drive.
  • Presenters must bring a copy of all external files contained within their PowerPoint presentations, such as video in one folder.
  • The time allotment for each presentation will be strictly enforced. The microphone and slides will be turned off at the end of the designated time.
  • Speakers are asked to attend the session they are assigned to in its entirety. If a speaker is not present when their name is called, the next speaker on the schedule will be summoned. The speaking order may advance quickly if a speaker misses their time.
