Information for presenters
Conference participants intending to present
either a talk or a poster at Evolution 2013 will be
required to register for the conference and submit details
of their presentation with their registration. Presentation
title submission deadline is April
Please note that presenters will be limited to one Regular Oral Presentation, one Lightning Oral Presentation and one Poster, You may be a non-presenting coauthor on other presentations. This rule includes invited speakers and speakers participating in symposia.
During the talk submission process
presenters will be asked to choose a presentation type
(symposium, regular oral presentation, lightning talk,
poster, etc.) and to submit a descriptive title. On the next screen
options will be provided to identify a session or symposium title,
and then you will be asked for keywords
for your talk or poster. This selection is
very important, as it will be used to sort papers into
sessions and will help other attendees find your
presentation based on its content - the entire program
will be available as a searchable network resource.
A list of the session titles available is available HERE,
but presenters can create their own list of
keywords. Note that session titles will be used to
create sessions, and some of these may be split into
multiple sessions or combined with other sessions on
similar topics. Organization of talks within sessions will
follow conceptual and organismal themes based on keywords
