The RI session consists of two portions. First, each of the ten presenter will give a three-minute presentation, followed by a one minute transition to the next speaker. After all presentations, all speakers will go to their assigned TV screen to display their poster for the interactive portion that lasts for the remainder of the session. A few points to keep in mind.
- Please go to your session room at least five minutes ahead of time.
- The session room will be equipped with a Windows laptop with MS Powerpoint and Acrobat PDF reader. Please load your presentation onto this computer prior to the start of the session so that the presentation portion can move through on time. If you absolutely need to use your own computer (because of the need for special software or major compatibility problems), please test the connection before the start of the session. There will be a student volunteer in the room for assistance if needed.
- At the start of your presentation, introduce yourself and give the title of your paper.
- Immediately after the last speaker finishes the three-minute presentation, go to your assigned station for your digital poster in the same session room. Both HDMI connection and VGA adapters will be provided for you to connect your laptop to the provided TV screen. Please bring any other required adapters by yourself. The digital poster should be set in the landscape orientation.
- Please stay by your digital poster until the end of the session. If there are people waiting to talk to you, limit your discussion with any one attendee. Schedule a time later to get together to discuss in more detail. If you have more than one author for your paper, we recommend you have two authors at your poster station. This allows one author to walk around and talk to other authors of thematically related papers while the second author presents the work.
- Session Chairs and Co-Chairs must be at the room of the assigned session 10 min before it starts. The main role of the chair/co-chair is to keep the presentations on time.
- At the start of the session, check in with the presenter of each of the papers to welcome them. The (Co)-Chairs will briefly present the session (just by its title). There should be a 60 second gap between the end of one talk and the beginning of the next one, during which time you introduce each speaker and their organization.
- Once the last presenter finishes their 3 min talk, the Chair (or co-Chair) the digital poster session starts. The (Co)-Chairs should announce the end of the session after a total of 90 minutes.
- Please assess the work of each paper for whether it would be suitable for the O. Hugo Schuck award: https://a2c2.org/o-hugo-schuck-best-paper-award
WHAT IS AN RI SESSION?
Each RI session consists of a sequential three-minute presentations for each paper (with 60 seconds to transition to the next) followed by a live, interactive digital poster session. This format enables authors to reach a greater audience for their research while at the same time encouraging more in-depth individual interactions during the digital poster session. For 2023 ACC, each RI session will consist of 10 papers.
More specifically, RI sessions will have the following format:
- Presentation: The 10 three-minute presentations are given back-to-back. Examples of presentations and instructions for authors are given below.
- Interactive Digital Poster Session: During the session authors will be available to discuss their work in detail with a digital poster of their work in an assigned station with a TV screen in the room. Ten stations will be provided for the ten posters. Posters can be created using Power Point, for example, and may include results in the form of images, graphs, text, etc. Attendees will walk around the rooms and interact with presenters to ask questions about their work.
