We are looking forward to your participation as a speaker at the 2013 USPHS Scientific and Training Symposium at the Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel. We are encouraging all speakers to upload their presentations in advance of the conference following the instructions below. As a backup, please also bring a copy of your presentation with you on a thumb drive or similar medium. Please only upload the FINAL version of your presentation.
To Upload your Presentation:
2. Enter your full name and email address in the appropriate boxes.
3. Enter “2013 [Day You are Speaking] Symposium Presentation, [Last Name], [First Initial], [Track or Category]” in the subject line.
5. Upload your file by clicking “Select File,” choosing your file, and clicking “Open.”
6. Click the “Send It” button. You will receive an email confirmation.
Each presentation room will have a laptop, LCD and screen. A podium microphone will be available where appropriate for room size. If you submit your presentation by the deadline it will be pre-loaded on the laptop in your room. The computers will support Microsoft Office 2007 products, or earlier, including PowerPoint. Mac/Apple computers will not be available. Sound and video will not be supported.
Onsite Presentation Submission
If you do not submit your presentation online you will have the opportunity to drop it off at registration no later than 24 hours prior to your presentation. There will be envelopes available to label your media in order to have it returned to you on the day of your presentation. If you wait until the day of your presentation you must bring it to the room at least thirty minutes before the session you are speaking for begins. A session is defined as the block of 3 or 4 papers presented back to back. The 3 session time frames for Wednesday are 10:45 am – 12:15 pm, 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm, and 3:15 pm – 4:45 pm. Thursday’s time frames vary by Category, so if you find you need to upload your presentation the day of your presentation talk to your Category Representative before Thursday to figure out the best time.
Presentation collection at the Registration desk will be available: TBA
We are no longer accepting abstract submissions. The deadline for abstract submissions was December 17, 2012 and is now passed.
Each year the committee seeks abstracts that provide an opportunity for those engaged at all levels and settings of public health to share innovative and effective best practices and research. We expect to open the call for 2014 presentations in the fall of 2013.
