Thank you to those who submitted abstracts for consideration. Notice of presenters was circulated June 28th. Scheduling information will be circulated by mid-August.

Top Five Tips for All Presenters:

  1. Remember that ICCH attendees are interprofessional, international and diverse overall. To help promote an inclusive and welcoming environment, please be sure to speak clearly and slowly, utilize the microphone provided so that all may hear, and avoid using acronyms or jargon unless you explain them.
  2. Limit the information on your slides. The slides should not contain your talking points word-for-word. Use a minimum font size of 28pt.
  3. Include graphics/images whenever possible and avoid overly detailed graphs and charts that attendees won't be able to read.
  4. Practice: Time yourself to ensure you'll leave appropriate time for questions. Moderators will help you stay on track, but you want to be sure to have enough time to get your key points across.
  5. Arrive at the room where your presentation will be held at least 10 minutes early so that you may load your presentation on the laptop and become familiar with the audio/visual technology provided.
Oral Abstract Presentations

Time Allotment: Oral abstract sessions will be 90 minutes long and will each include 4-5 presentations. Each presenter will be allotted 10 minutes for his or her presentation plus 5 minutes for questions and answers. The moderator in each oral presentation room will prompt you to keep you on time and will lead a group discussion after all presentations have been given, time permitting. We strongly encourage all presenters to practice their presentation ahead of time.

Audio/Visual Equipment: Computers and LCD projectors will be available to support PowerPoint. Please plan to bring your presentation on a jump drive and arrive at the room scheduled for your presentation at least 10 minutes before the session is to begin to load your presentation on the computer.

PPT Slides: Presenters may use their own slide design/template. 

Poster Presentations
The poster sessions are designed for focused interaction between presenters and other attendees. For this reason we encourage you to stay at your poster for the majority of the session. You may have time to see other posters during setup and outside the designated time for the poster session. Posters must be no larger than 45 inches x 45 inches (or 114 cm x 114 cm). Each poster will be assigned one-half of a 4 foot by 8 foot, free standing, two-sided display board. Tacks will be available to affix your poster materials to the board. Please pay careful attention to the poster dimensions.

Workshops
Workshops will run for 90 minutes. They must be interactive, meaning workshop participants should be expected to actively contribute and have the opportunity to practice ideas or skills within the workshop, and didactic portions of the workshop should be limited and begin with a statement of specific learning objectives. Toward the end of each workshop, participants should be encouraged to tell the group the key point(s) they will take home for reflection and possible implementation.
 
Audio/Visual Equipment: A flipchart with markers, a computer and a projector will be available in each room.
 
PPT slides: Presenters may use their own slide design/template.  Please plan to bring your presentation on a jump drive and arrive at the room scheduled for your presentation at least 10 minutes before the session is to begin to load your presentation on the computer. 
 
Handouts: If you would like to provide handouts, please bring approximately 50 copies for your workshop. Attendees do not sign up in advance of sessions.
 
Evaluations: If you are interested in having your workshop evaluated, please bring enough of your own evaluations and collect them at the end of your session.
Research in Progress Presentations

Research in Progress (RIP) sessions are designed to enable early career participants to present work on ongoing research projects. They are specifically meant to enable those presenting their work to obtain feedback from the audience on their work so far and therefore have a specific format: a 10-minute oral presentation followed by 10 minutes of discussion.  Presenters will be limited to a maximum of 8 PowerPoint slides. 

Each presenter will identify clearly what feedback he/she would like from the audience at the start of the presentation on the slide following the title. This will guide the discussion at the end of the presentation. The presenters will also obtain confidential feedback from the session chair at the end of the session on his/her presentation skills.

RIP sessions will have a total length of 90 minutes and will each include 3-4 presentations. In the allotted 10 minutes for your presentation you will provide an overview of your study with a focus on the area that you would like feedback on. This part of the presentation may be structured similarly to other oral presentations (e.g., introduction, methods, and preliminary results). After the presentation, discussion with the audience will focus on the questions that you provide at the start of your presentation. We will have one to two pre-selected scholars in attendance who will be asked to facilitate the discussion and feedback of your presentation. 

We strongly encourage all presenters to practice their presentation ahead of time.

Audio/Visual Equipment: Computers and LCD projectors will be available to support PowerPoint. Please plan to bring your presentation on a jump drive and arrive at the room scheduled for your presentation at least 10 minutes before the session is to begin to load your presentation on the computer.

PPT Slides: Presenters may use their own slide design/template.  

Symposia
Each symposium will be 90-minutes long. The session is designed to capture a coherent set of three to five individual presentations that center on one theme. An important asset of a symposium is that it places individual experiences or research results in a broader context and allows time for interaction between the presenters and discussion among the group. As you plan the symposium, please build in time for audience participation and discussion.
 
Audio/Visual Equipment: Computers and LCD projectors will be available to support PowerPoint. Please plan to bring your presentation on a jump drive and arrive at the room scheduled for your presentation at least 10 minutes before the session is to begin to load your presentation on the computer.
 
PPT Slides: Presenters may use their own slide design/template.  
Creative Arts

Performance Arts:

Creative Arts - Performance Arts presentations will be integrated into the oral abstract presentations in alignment with the primary and/or secondary theme selected upon submission. The sessions are 90 minutes long and will each include 4-5 presentations. As mentioned in the submission process Creative Arts is a new category for ICCH and there is no prescribed format.

Presenters should use their presentation time as outlined in the accepted submission. Approved presentation times vary from 15-30 minutes and were sent directly to the corresponding author upon approval of the submission.

The moderator in each presentation room will prompt presenters to stay on time and will lead a group discussion after all presentations have been given, time permitting. It is strongly encouraged that all presenters practice their presentation ahead of time.

Audio/Visual Equipment: Computers and LCD projectors will be available to support PowerPoint (if needed). Please plan to bring your presentation on a jump drive and arrive at the room scheduled for your presentation at least 10 minutes before the session is to begin to load your presentation on the computer.

Handouts/Materials: If you would like to provide handouts or other related materials for the presentation, please plan for approximately 50 attendees. Attendees do not sign up in advance of sessions.
 

Visual Arts:
 
Creative Arts – Visual Arts will be displayed during one of two poster session receptions at the conference.  The poster receptions are designed for focused interaction between presenters and other attendees. For this reason we encourage you to stay at your presentation piece for the majority of the reception. You may have time to see other items during setup and outside the designated time for the reception. Posters stands will be available to display your art. The poster stand display area measures 4 feet by 8 feet and is a free standing, two-sided display board. Tacks will be available to affix your materials to the board.
