Presentation Guidelines
The following guidelines are to be observed by all presenters in order to facilitate both the presenters and the conference program. Once accepted and duly registered, all oral presentations have been scheduled in 30-minute sessions within the conference schedule.

  • It is important to design your talk to fit within a 15-20 minute time frame. This will allow 5 minutes for questions and discussion and 5 minutes for movement between presentations. The Chair of each session will be instructed to ensure that the time allocated is followed.
  • In each presentation room, there will be a lectern computer that will be running Windows with Office 2010 or latest version. Save your files as a .ppt rather than .pptx to ensure compatibility.
  • Please email your presentation files to 2017aasm@gmail.com at least five days before the conference begins. Also, save your presentation as a .ppt on a memory stick.
  • Your presentation, once submitted, will be checked to ensure that it is compatible and that all parts are readable. It will then be transferred to the lectern computer that will be used in your allocated presentation room.

Again, all abstracts must be submitted to 2017aasm@gmail.com NO LATER THAN 23:59 p.m. (KST, Korea Standard Time) on April 30, 2017. Visit www.aasm2017.com for more information.
