Instructions for Presenters

Everyone attending in person will need to be fully vaccinated. No proof of vaccination will be required. We are operating on an honor system.

Due to the decision to allow in-person and livestreamed presentations at this year’s BSC, some things have changed substantially in preliminary procedures.We have special requirements for speakers who will be using visuals of any kind. The tech needs are increased, and all presentations with visuals, whether presented in person or via Zoom, need to adhere to the following requirements:

  1. All presentations requiring any visual component on screen need to be in ppt. AND in a widescreen format. To ascertain that your ppt is in widescreen mode: Select the Design tab of the toolbar ribbon. Select Slide Size near the far right end of the toolbar. Widescreen (16:9) ratio.
  2. The tech people will create single ppt slideshows for each session, including slideshows by remote presenters and slideshows by in-person presenters.
  3. If you have special characters that may not work when your slideshow is run by the tech’s Powerpoint, please make a screenshot or JPEG of the slide with the text and paste it into your ppt in place ofthe text.
  4. ALL POWERPOINTS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MIDNIGHT EST ON DECEMBER 2. Submit them to Wendy Rohm ( and Marina Savchenkova ( and cc me ( ).
  5. ALL VIDEO CONTENT MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MIDNIGHT EST ON DECEMBER 2. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT REMOTE SPEAKERS PRE-RECORD THEIR PRESENTATIONS AND SEND THEM IN BY THE DEADLINE. Should you choose to do this, we would expect you to be live during the time that we play your recording, so that you can handle the Q&A.
  6. All remote questions during the conference will need to be submitted using the chat feature.
