GUIDELINES FOR ORAL PRESENTATIONS

The speaking time is 10 minutes, and 5 minutes for questions. The talk should cater to non-experts who are interested in learning about the big picture goal of your work (technology-wise, disease-wise) and then into the specifics of the project. Please plan to deliver the presentation using your own laptop computer.

GUIDELINES FOR POSTER PRESENTATIONS

The posters should printed, up to 48 inches by 48 inches, and may be in landscape or portrait orientation. Please bring the posters to the Ballroom between 12:30pm and 2:30pm on the first day of the workshop, and hang these in assigned spaces in the reception area between 2:30 and 3pm.

Background

The overall goal of this workshop series is to foster a discourse in translational research in image-guided therapy in the NIH-funded community, and to communicate the availability of NCIGT as a national resource for tools and technologies in the field. Similar to previous workshops in this series, attendance is expected of members of academia, industry, and federal agencies interested in image-guided interventions.
