All presenters at the AACPDM 71st 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.
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.
The deadline to submit handouts is August 15th.
Email instructions to the speaker system have been emailed with your username and password. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need this information emailed again.

The AACPDM will not be providing paper handouts for presenters. The deadline to submit handouts is August 15th.
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 the deadline, 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.

Presentations must be submitted via the Speaker Harvester System. Details will be emailed to the presenting authors. The presentation portal will close on August 29th, 2017.

Please include your session number and last name in your file name (F8_Jones).
