Time for presentation

Individual presentations should be between 15 minutes to a maximum of 20 minutes. Do not exceed the appointed time and respect the time of your fellow panelists. Panel presentations should not exceed 70 minutes. For both modalities, there should be at least 15 minutes to answer questions from the audience after the presentations.

For the poster sessions, the presentation should be 10 minutes only. You can complement the poster with a PowerPoint presentation or demonstration video.

Audiovisual equipment for presentation

Each room assigned for the panel sessions will be equipped with a Windows PC and Microsoft Office, a multimedia projector and a projection screen. However, we invite those presenters who can bring their own PC to do so. Also, bring your PowerPoint presentation on a USB drive, and send a copy to your email as backup copy. If your presentation is designed on a Macintosh computer, make sure the electronic file is fully compatible with Windows, or bring your own computer. In the latter case, you will also need to bring the proper adapter to connect your Mac computer to the projector: (a) if you need Internet access, bring a USB/Ethernet adapter, (b) for multimedia projector, bring a VGA adapter, (c) or any other adapter you may deem necessary.

The University of Puerto Rico does not have hotel accommodations on its grounds, so we suggest you check out the hotels in the tourist areas of Condado, Isla Verde, Miramar and Old San Juan. Transportation from these areas to the UPR should average about 20 minutes of commute time by traditional taxi. You can also contact UBER service for your transportation needs. As another option, you can combine buses and urban train (Tren Urbano), although this method will take longer, up to an hour of commute time, depending on the nearest bus station to your hotel area.
