Advance Submission:

CI2020 will be utilizing a Presentation Management system that allows for advance submission of presentations, review of presentations in the Speaker Ready Room, and networked transfer of presentations into each session room. ACI Alliance requires that presentations be submitted IN ADVANCE of the meeting to allow adequate time for closed captioning to be prepared for your presentation (at least 24 hours in advance of your session start time). Access to the Presentation Management system will be granted in mid-February 2020. 

Speaker Presentation Times:

Adherence to speaker presentation times will be strictly enforced. Unless otherwise specified, presentation lengths are as follows:

Podium: 9 minutes
Poster Highlight: 3 minutes

In order to provide equal opportunity for each presenter and adequate time for Q&A at the end of each session, this time schedule must be strictly adhered to and will be enforced by the moderator, ACIA staff and the A/V team. There will be a timer on the podium and a second timer on the floor by the confidence monitor. Please pay attention to the timers during your presentation. If your presentation runs over your allotted time, your slides and microphone will be turned off.
