Congratulations for being selected as an panel presenter at the Medicine X Conference at Stanford University (Sept 5-7, 2014).
Please read this page carefully as it contains important information regarding the upcoming Medicine X conference.

Program

  • Please check back closer to the conference to find the finalized scheduled time of your session. We cannot yet guarantee the exact time and date of your presentation, as this will be assigned 1 week before the conference, however, please note that your panel presentation will take place on either Friday, September 5, Saturday, September 6 or Sunday, September 7, 2014.
  • All panel presentations will take place on the Medicine X main stage or in a breakout room. Please note room assignments are made 1 week in advance of the conference and we cannot guarantee room assignments.

Your Presentation

  • Your panel will be either 45 or 90 minutes in length, depending on your allotted time slot. During your panel, you and your fellow panelists will each give your prepared presentations during your respective allotted time. The remaining time will be reserved for a moderated discussion session.
  • Please note that due to scheduling, we must insist that speakers do not exceed their allotted time. Unfortunately, there can be no exceptions with regard to the time allotted for the duration of your presentation. The chair in charge of moderating your panel will stop your speech after 20 minutes regardless of whether you have finished giving your talk.
  • Please save any slides necessary for your speech as a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation on a USB flash drive. Presentations will be loaded from an Apple Mac Pro laptop computer for digital projection.
  • If you are using any video or sound clips in your presentation, please include the original file alongside your presentation on your USB flash drive.
  • We kindly request that you arrive at your designated speaking location at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time of your session.
  • During this time, you will upload any slides to the Medicine X conference computers, introduce yourself to the chair in charge of moderating your session and tell the session chair how you would like to be announced to the audience. This time also allows us to rearrange the schedule, if necessary, to account for unavoidable conflicts.
