Presentations - you give a talk with powerpoint visual to an audience, leaving five to ten minutes at the end of the presentation for question and answer. You may have an additional presenter so long as their information is submitted with your abstract. Presentations can be scheduled during the concurrent presentation time on Friday and Saturday.
