Day-Of Presenter Information
From the submitted abstracts, day-of presenters will be assigned as one of the following: plenary presenter, oral presenter or poster presenter.
You will have ten (10) minutes to present and five (5) minutes for a Q&A session with attendees. You should have no more than 1 PowerPoint slide per minute (i.e. 10 slides for a 10 minute presentation) and animations should only be used if necessary. If you choose to use them, Pitt and UPMC PowerPoint templates have been provided below for your convenience. Based on your assignment as a plenary presenter, you will not need to prepare a poster.
You will have five (5) minutes to present 4-5 slides and three (3) minutes for a Q&A session with judges and special guests. You must use either the Pitt or UPMC PowerPoint templates provided below and keep the prepopulated slide headers. You may use one less “results” slide if your research does not require it, but all other slides must be included in your final presentation. Animations should only be used if necessary. Awards will be presented at the end of the day to oral presenters who received the highest scores. Based on your assignment as an oral presenter, you will not need to prepare a poster.
Each poster presenter will be required to prepare a virtual poster that will be on display in the platform throughout Research Day. Although posters will not be judged, poster presenters will be required to be available during the 1 ½ – hour poster viewing session to engage via video chat with attendees and special guests. Each poster presenter will have special guests assigned to visit their video chat. The special guests include senior DOM leadership and faculty, and senior Pitt leadership. Special guests will spend 5-7 minutes with each poster presenter and then proceed to the next poster on their list. If you choose to use them, Pitt and UPMC poster templates have been provided below for your convenience.
