Guidelines for Workshop Presentations

We have created a presentation template which we suggest, but do not require you to adopt, available here (PPT).  Both presenters and discussants should email their slides as a PDF to whitepaper@rhsmith.umd.edu by midnight October 8th. We have contracted for VCube recording and slide presentation of the conference and MUST  have all presentations by the October 8th deadline for you to use slides in your presentation.

Regular Sessions

A regular session lasts 75 minutes. Each presenter will have 15 minutes for their presentation, followed by 5 minutes of discussion/comments by the assigned paper discussant. At the end of each session, there will be 15 minutes of Q&A open to all participants. Audience members will hold their questions to the end of the session.

WHITE discussants are encouraged to coordinate with the presenting authors to discuss the paper before the workshop, and may arrange to receive advance copies of the presentation.

Please name the presentation file “WHITE2014-XY-slides” where X is the number of the session and Y is the number of your paper as found in the workshop program: For example, session 1, 2nd presentation, the file should be WHITE 2014-12-slides.

Cluster (Short) Presentations

There is a dedicated cluster presentation session. Each presenter will get 5 minutes and up to 6 slides (1 title slide and up to 5 content slides). It is important that presenters plan their remarks carefully, as we will adhere strictly to the timing guidelines.

Please name the presentation file “WHITE2014-CY-slides” where Y is the number of your paper as found in the workshop program: if your cluster presentation is 4th, the file should be WHITE 2014-C4-slides.

Research Panels

There are two research panel sessions. Each presenter will get 5 minutes and up to 5 slides (1 title slide and up to 4 content slides), followed by moderator and audience questions. It is important that presenters plan their remarks carefully, as we will adhere strictly to the timing guidelines.

Please name the presentation file “WHITE2014-RXY-slides” where X is either "provider" or "mhealth" depending on which panel you are in, and Y is the number of your paper as found in the workshop program: if your presentation is 4th in the Provider Use of Technology panel, the file should be WHITE 2014-Rmhealth4-slides.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

Presenters will be provided with a poster foam board display space measuring 48 x 36 inches, on which they can attach either a poster sheet or individual tiled sheets (thumb tacks will be provided). The suggested poster size is 48 x 36 inches, and can be positioned either horizontally or vertically.

WHITE does not assume copyright over work accepted for presentation and does not publish conference proceedings.
