4th North American Symposium on Chemical Reaction Engineering

Guidelines for Presenters

Keynote & Oral Presentations

NASCRE 4 has four parallel session tracks and each session track will be moderated by two Session Chairs. Each track consists of a series of 25-minute Oral presentations and some tracks include a 50-minute Keynote presentation. Speakers with a 25-minute slot should plan to speak for 20 minutes, and Keynote speakers should plan to speak for 45 minutes, with the remaining time to be used for questions and the transition time including speaker introductions by the Session Chair.

Due to the tight presentation schedule, you will need to bring your presentation on a USB flash drive to the meeting room at least 15 minutes in advance of the START of the session.

We will have student assistants in each room to assist you in transferring your presentation to the presentation laptop. They will be available to answer your questions and help you with any issues.

We will also have a remote slide advancer with laser pointer for your use.

Presenter Guidelines

  • PowerPoint slides should be prepared for a widescreen (16:9) format for best readability with our projection parameters.
  • Internet will NOT be provided.
  • Test the readability of your presentation before the meeting.

If you have any conference questions please contact the NASCRE 4 Conference Manager, Robin Craven (craven@iscre.org).

Poster Presentations (Contributed Papers)

NASCRE 4 will have 2 poster sessions. Both will be located in Woodway I & II on the 4th Level.

  • Monday, March 11, from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
  • Tuesday, March 12, from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

ALL poster presentations will be scheduled for both days, so you will have a 3-hour window over 2 days in which to present your research.

During the poster sessions, light refreshments and a beer and wine bar will also be available.

Poster Specifications

The poster boards will be double sided. Each poster presentation will have ONE HALF of ONE SIDE of a panel.
