We are excited about the events we have planned for ISSRM ’19. One of the highlights will be the conference field trips. Please note that we have built three outstanding field trips into the conference schedule for Wednesday, June 5; after the morning plenary keynote that day, there’ll be a break in the schedule to allow everyone to go on a trip, returning to Oshkosh in time for an awesome conference picnic at a riverside amphitheater. We also have two excellent post-conference trips planned. All of the trips are described hereIf you haven’t already, please click here and register for your choice today!

We also have one pre-conference workshop, a half-day version of Aldo Leopold Foundation’s popular Land Ethic Leaders workshop, which will be held at the conference site on Sunday, June 2. A limited number of seats remain. There is no charge. Register here.

Instructions for Presenters:

  1. Please check the program to confirm the time and location of your session.
  2. Please be sure to bring your PowerPoint presentation materials with you on a USB drive; you will be responsible for loading the presentation onto the computer located in the room where your session is scheduled to take place just prior to the scheduled start time.  All rooms where presentations will occur will have a laptop PC with Windows software and a current version of PowerPoint installed.  If you are working with some other type of equipment or software (Macintosh for example), please arrange in advance to convert your presentation materials so that they will be compatible with the PC/Windows systems we are providing.
  3. All presenters should plan to arrive at their session locations at least 5-10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time, so that presentation materials can be loaded onto the computer.  This will help us to avoid unnecessary delays or confusion during the session itself.  A session chair/room monitor will be present to assist with this if needed.
  4. Sessions are 90 minutes in length and include 3-5 presenters. Please plan your presentation with regard to how many papers are in your session. As a general rule presenters should plan to have 12-15 minutes to present, with approximately 3-5 minutes available for questions and discussion. The session chair/room monitor will be tracking time, and will let you know when the end of your allotted presentation time is approaching. Please be sure to stay on time! Note—panelists may follow a different strategy and you should refer to your session organizer for instruction.

Instructions for Poster Presenters: Please hand in your posters at the registration desk when you register, and our volunteers will set them up for you prior to the start of the poster session on Monday. Posters need to be handed in at the latest by the time of the afternoon coffee break on Monday. Please remove your poster at the end of the Poster Session on Monday evening.

Registration: The registration desk will be in the Lobby area of Sage Hall. Check in here for all ISSRM information and questions.

We look forward to hosting you at the 2019 ISSRM!
