Oral Abstract Sessions

General Information

Oral Abstract Sessions will take place on 14-16 October 2015.  Each Abstract Presenter will need to upload their Presentation in the Speaker Resource Room (Room 204 on Floor 2) before their Presentation begins.  WAO requests you use PowerPoint to design the slide presentation for your talk.  Oral abstract presenters do not create or present a poster of their abstract as their findings will be presented through the PowerPoint presentation during their scheduled Oral Abstract Session. You will have approximately 10 minutes to give a brief discussion of your findings, along with 5 minute question and answer period, which will be moderated by the Chairpersons.
