AACPDM annual meeting

American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) Free Papers

All presenters at the AACPDM 78th 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 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.

The preferred slide format is 16:9. Screens at the Annual Meeting will be set for this format and slides submitted in 4:3 will have black bars on each side to fill the screen.

Slides need to be uploaded in the Speaker Ready Room (at the convention center) a minimum of 24 hours prior to your presentation time.
