Annual Meeting

Oral Presentation Guidelines

Below you will find information that will help you prepare for your participation in the technical program at this year’s Annual Meeting. We are glad to have you with us and hope the experience is a good one.

CHANGE IN SPEAKER OR CANCELLATION: As a courtesy to the audience and to your session chair, please let us know as soon as possible if there is a change in your presentation. If there is some last-minute difficulty, please arrange for someone else to present your paper rather than canceling it.

All persons attending the Annual Meeting are required to pay the appropriate registration fee as indicated on the registration form. ALL PRESENTERS MUST REGISTER FOR THE MEETING TO ENSURE PUBLICATION OF ABSTRACT IN FINAL PROGRAM.

For changes to speaker or program prior to the meeting, please call the SRA Secretariat at 703-790-1745, or email:


  1. Your presentation is limited to fifteen or twenty minutes (depending on the session-please check the online program for your start and end times) and this includes time for questions.
  2. Please upload your presentation in the speaker ready room one day prior to your presentation.
  3. You must report to the room where the session will be held 10 minutes before the session begins. Session chairs will start and end every speaker on time, so please plan accordingly.
  4. All session rooms will have an LCD projector and a computer for the presentations. Your presentation will be preloaded on the computer in your session room.

We thank you for presenting your work at the SRA Annual Meeting and look forward to seeing you in Texas in December.
