Who, Where and What?

The Hypoxia Audience. Hypoxia Symposia audiences are from a broad background, with sophisticated knowledge in many fields, though perhaps not in your own. Please do not assume that the lingo in your field will be understandable to everyone. Consider the Hypoxia Symposia audience as a Grand Rounds audience with Deans from parts of your University, and all Chairs of all Departments in your University. Presenters ignore this advice at their own peril! Do not hesitate to contact the organizers with any questions you may have about your presentation.

The Meeting Room at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. The main room for all oral presentations is the Mount Temple Wing of the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Presentations are given from a platform at the front of a large meeting room. The ceilings are high, thus allowing good readability of projected images even from the back of the room. Remember: even a nice meeting room cannot compensate for a poorly prepared presentation.

Plenary Talks. The plenary talks are given each morning and some afternoons of the Symposium. They feature the world's distinguished experts presenting the latest developments in their fields. Our general guidelines for Powerpoint, availlable here should be followed. Click here for manuscript preparation information.

Hot Topic Talks. Hot Topic talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts. An international panel of experts judge the abstracts for their significance and interest to the Hypoxia audience. The abstracts are blinded as to authorship during the judging. The invited speakers are notified in late January that their abstract has been chosen. Hot Topic talks are fifteen (15) minutes in length, with ten (10) minutes for presentation and five (5) minutes for discussion. These general guidelines for presentations and Powerpoint should be followed. Time limits are strictly enforced. The selected Hot Topic talks will be displayed on the final program, available in mid-February.

Poster Session: Poster sessions are featured on Wednesday afternoon. Poster viewing starts the DAY BEFORE, thus your poster should be setup well by early afternoon on Tuesday, depending on the schedule for your poster. Presenters are expected to be present at their poster during the entire poster session. Pins for attaching the posters will be available. Your poster should measure: up to 72 inches wide x up to 43 inches high (roughly 180cm wide by x 90cm tall)". Poster session programming will be displayed on the final program, available in mid-February. Click here for detailed guidelines for preparing your poster.
