WCBR Speaker Instructions
We are looking forward to your participation in the 2013 Winter Conference on Brain Research. Like many scientific conferences we endorse transparency in the disclosure of information that could be deemed as a conflict of interest. Therefore, please list any financial disclosures or conflicts of interest on your title slide or on a dedicated second slide. If you have no disclosures, please acknowledge this status as follows: "None of the authors have any financial disclosures or conflicts of interest". Funding by government or other not-for-profit agencies does not need to be included in the disclosure, but should be acknowledged elsewhere in the presentation.
In preparation for your panel presentation at the 46th Annual Winter Conference on Brain Research (WCBR), we would like to remind that you are expected to ensure that the speakers appear in the proposed order (same as in the program) and that they do not run overtime. For 2-hour panels (morning and afternoon), each of the four speakers should be given ~20-25 min talk (30-35 min for panels with 3 speakers) leaving 5-10 min for discussion after each talk.
For 1.5 hour panels (evening), the talks will be 15-20 min, leaving ~5 min for discussion after each talk. Please make sure BEFORE the start of your session that your presentations work on the equipment provided.
Each meeting room will be equipped with the following: LCD projector, 4-channel switcher for computers, laser pointer/slide advance remote. WCBR does not provide computers, Mac adapters, or international converters. If you will not be bringing your own laptop computer, please ensure that your session chair or a fellow speaker will share theirs. It is the responsibility of each speaker to be prepared to present their materials.
