Beware of the start time and date displayed on your Contribution window:
– it may be wrong.

If your start time is earlier than the finish time and the duration is correct, then the information is correct and you can ignore the warning below.

If the start time is 7 hours later than it should be compared to the finish time, please subtract 7 hours to get the correct start time.

If this problem exists and your talk is scheduled for 17:00 onwards, the date shown will be incorrectly incremented by one day.

The finish time is always correct, quoted in PDT.

Please use the Compact Timetable link to verify the correct day and time of your talk.

The Poster Session is on Friday at 18:30–19:30 immediately before the Conference Banquet.

You are strongly encouraged to submit a PDF file in order to minimize the probability of font corruptions, etc., but PowerPoint and Keynote files will also be accepted.

You are also requested to bring a copy of your talk on a USB stick as a backup in case connectivity or bandwidth problems are experienced linking back to the Indico instance at LBNL.

  • Create an account on the LBNL Indico instance immediately by using the red Login button above.
  • After you have submitted the account request form, you will receive an e-mail which contains a link that you should use to activate your account.
