Presentation types: Contributed talks | Ignite talks | Posters
Contributed talks: These talks will be ~15 minutes long, and will give attendees full attention while presenting their research.
Ignite talks: These 5-minute talks, for which researchers submit that auto-advance at specified intervals, have been demonstrated by other conferences to be a successful vehicle for young researchers to present their results in a high-profile setting, and we are excited to add this element to our schedule.
Posters: These will be held in two sessions, and will allow for presenters to directly interact with colleagues and other participants.
(Travel Support requests are now closed)
A limited number of travel support awards are available to young scientists to facilitate travel to Dynamics Days 2017.
Because the Dynamics Days community is so diverse, we find that the most successful presentations are those that are aimed for a broad scientific audience and do not assume field-specific technical background.
Contributed Talk sessions will be on Wednesday January 4, Thursday January 5, and Friday January 6. You will find your assigned session in your original Abstract acceptance email.
Contributed Talks will be 15 minutes long each, with 5 minutes for Q&A (total 20 minutes).
You will be able to use your own laptop for your presentation. Please let us know if you DO NOT plan to use your own laptop and send us your presentation as a pdf or PowerPoint file to us in advance of the conference by January 2, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the subject line Dynamics Days 2017 - Ignite Talk Presentation Slides - Abstract [Abstract number found in the subject line and first line of your acceptance email].
Ignite Talk sessions will be on Wednesday January 4 and Thursday January 6. You will find your assigned session in your original Abstract acceptance email.
Ignite Talks will be 5 minutes long each, and slides will auto-advance. There will be 10 minutes for an open Q&A at the end of the session after all speakers have presented.
You will submit a pdf file to us by January 2, 2017 to email@example.com. Please use the subject line Dynamics Days 2017 - Ignite Talk Presentation Slides - Abstract [Abstract number found in the subject line and first line of your acceptance email]. The file must contain exactly 20 slides, which we will auto-advance at a rate of 1 slide every 15 seconds. We strongly encourage you to use duplicate slides or to use multiple slides for simple animations (e.g. adding individual points to a bulleted list), such that the equivalent number of slides for a traditional presentation would be no more than ten. Because we have seen that presenters sometimes try to pack in too much information when told they have 20 slides for 5 minutes, we recommend that you use duplicate slides and simple slide builds (e.g., slide N has just title, slide N+1 has a title and 1 bullet point, slide N+2 has a title and two bullet points, etc.) so that you are not trying to cover 20 completely different slides in 5 minutes.
Ignite talks within a given session will be back-to-back. There will be no introductions of each speaker. Speakers will be lined up next to the stage and ready to go as soon as the previous speaker is done.
Posters Presentation sessions will be in the afternoon on Wednesday January 4 and in the morning on Friday January 6 in the Magnolia Ballroom. You will find your assigned session in your original Abstract acceptance email. For organization purposes, each poster board in the Magnolia Ballroom will have a poster number. This is not the number currently found in the conference schedule below. For your poster number, please refer to the final abstract booklet (found here) or schedule (found here), which you will pick up upon check-in at the conference.
Posters should be 45 inches x 45 inches or smaller. For the afternoon poster session on Wednesday, you will be expected to mount your poster by 1pm that day and take it down by noon the following day. For the morning poster session on Friday, you will be expected to mount your poster between noon and 5pm on Thursday and take it down by 5pm on Friday.
