The Designer Track will feature three full Designer Track sessions and a Designer Track poster-only session. Designer Track special sessions, a panel, and a design-specific keynote will also be featured this year in Austin. Each Designer Track session will consist of four to six 12-minute slide presentations followed by a 30-minute dedicated poster session for the abstracts from that session. Thanks to this new feature, attendees will be able to pose questions about the works that have been presented.
Following your presentation, you will also participate in a 30-minute poster presentation. Please see Poster Prep
for the specific guidelines and requirements on how to prepare your poster.
PowerPoint, LaTex, and LibreOffice files are the only acceptable visual aide this year at DAC. DAC will provide a PC with Windows, OpenOffice, LibreOffice and an LCD projector. Appropriate connections for both PC and Mac laptop computers will be available. Due to compatibility issues, using your own computer for your presentation is NOT recommended. Therefore, you MUST bring a back-up copy of your presentation on a USB drive or CD-ROM.
