13th International Laser Ranging
This page provides guidelines for oral and poster presentations and a list of equipment available at the workshop. A computer projector will be available for electronic presentations during the oral sessions. Available equipment and instructions for making electronic presentations are given below.
The laser ranging community comes together at these international workshops every two years to exchange ideas, to learn of innovations in technology and software, to review operational procedures, to encourage new groups, and to set standards where appropriate. Much of the interaction is carried out informally in coffee breaks or evenings, but the main forum is always the formal program of talks. This note offers a few gentle reminders to speakers.
Posters will be mounted on free-standing boards measuring 4 feet (1.2 meters) high by 8 feet (2.4 meters) wide. These boards will accomodate two posters per side. Therefore, the maximum space allocated to each poster is 4 feet by 4 feet (1.2 meters by 1.2 meters). Poster presentations can be a single large poster or individual papers as long as the total area required fits into this allocated space. Each poster author will be allocated five minutes during the Tuesday a.m. session to briefly summarize their poster.
Equipment for each oral session includes:
