This year, the User Track has become a full-fledged DAC track: each day of the technical program will feature three full User Track sessions and a User Track poster-only session. Each User 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.
PowerPoint files are the only acceptable visual aide this year at DAC. DAC will provide a PC with Windows, PowerPoint 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.
