69th Annual Meeting: New Frontiers


General Sessions

All presenters at the AACPDM 69th Annual Meeting are required to include a CME Disclosure Slide at the beginning of each presentation. Please use this PowerPoint Slide as a template to ensure all required information is listed. The slide is also a task in the new Speaker Harvester system.

All presenters should read and review the AACPDM Presentation Instructions, Tips & Advice document before creating their presentation. Please also ensure your presentation is in person-first language. Download the flyer and brochure for more details.


General Session presenters will use the new Speaker Harvester system to upload their presentation and handouts. Handouts are a crucial component to the success of the meeting to disseminate the information that is presented at the meeting. Please upload your materials at https://www.ConferenceHarvester.com/harvester2/login.asp?EventKey=DYHIPPNK. Handouts must be submitted by September 14, 2015. Presentations must be uploaded by October 5, 2015.

Handout Details

The AACPDM will not be providing paper handouts for presenters. Handout materials are accessible through the Annual Meeting Mobile App, which will launch in October. Handouts must be uploaded by September 14th.

The files for your handout should not be the same as your presentation. Please ensure your handouts are clear and legible before uploading them. No more than 3 files should be uploaded. Please keep the total of the file size(s) less than 1.5MB. All materials must be in PDF format. Please include your session number and last name in your file name (GenSession_Jones).

Please Note: After September 14th, handout materials will not be included in the mobile app. If you miss the deadline, you may bring your own paper handouts to distribute onsite, as attendees will be expecting additional information. However, it will be your responsibility to make your own copies. In addition, expenses for shipping or photocopying materials for distribution in Austin will not be reimbursed.

Presentation Details

Presentations must be submitted via the new Speaker Harvester System. Details will be emailed to the presenting authors. The presentation portal will close on October 5, 2015. After this date, if you have any revisions to your presentation, you must visit the Speaker Ready Room onsite in Austin to upload your presentation at least 24 hours before you present. Please include your session number and last name in your file name (F8_Jones).

Note: The AACPDM recommends that all presenters bring a copy of their presentation on a flash drive to serve as a back-up
