Please see the detailed schedule for information about which abstracts have been accepted as oral and poster presentations.
Each poster will be displayed for two days. The poster area is in the ASSC/First nations Atrium right outside the Museum of Anthropology at the NE corner of the AQ Building. This is adjacent to where the oral sessions are (see campus map). There are two poster sessions, one during the first half of the conference and the other during the second half. Authors are expected to be available at their posters from 4 to 6 PM on Monday, May 4 (first session) and Thursday, May 7 (second session). Coffee breaks are also held in the poster display area, allowing increased visibility.
Posters for the first session should be set up Monday morning and taken down Tuesday evening by 6 PM. Posters for the second session can be set up Thursday morning and taken down by Friday at 5 PM.
Poster boards are 4 x 8 feet and have a landscape orientation. There will be one poster per board. Each poster board is covered with cloth material that will hold Velcro tabs. Small amounts of Velcro will be provided for attaching posters to the boards.
Presentations will be in either ASSC 10081 or ASC 10041 (see campus map). Most presentations are scheduled for 20 minutes , including 5 min for questions and speaker change-over. Please ensure that your presentation is no longer than 15 minutes.
The conference computers have an Windows XP operating system and Office 2007. Two computers will also be available in room BLU 10011 (located between the two lecture halls) for speakers to ensure that their presentations are compatible with the hardware and software provided. Speakers should load their presentations via a USB drive on the computer in the room they are presenting 30 minutes before the session starts. A volunteer will be available in each lecture hall to assist with this task. The lecture halls will be used for the CANQUA and CGRG AGMs, which may place constraints on times available to load presentations.
