Speakers will be asked to present on the mornings of May 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. It is the goal of organizers to further the advancement of coatings technology through these speaker platforms.
The criteria for the presentations are as follows:
Abstract and Picture: An ABSTRACT for the presentation is required. The ABSTRACT TEMPLATE must be submitted in its entirety. Submission deadline is no later than December 1, 2016. Please submit your abstract and picture to http://ssct.org/speaker-abstract/ Acceptance letters will be sent on or before December 15, 2016.
Biography: The BIOGRAPHY TEMPLATE submission is due no later than December 1, 2016. Please submit your biography at http://ssct.org/speaker-biography/
Time: Presentations should be no less than 20 minutes and no longer than 30 minutes.
Audio Visual Equipment: Your submitted presentation will be readily available on our SSCT Computer for presenting.
Presentation: The actual PowerPoint presentation should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 15, 2017. Often organizers are asked by the attendees for copies of your presentation, please include your permission or not with the presentation email.
Content: Organizers will be reviewing the presentations solely based on their technical content and contribution. It is our goal to have educational technical presentations to improve the understanding of the science of coatings. Organizers are trying to challenge traditional methods of formulation as well as solve conventional issues that have plagued formulators utilizing new technologies and approaches. It is also our goal to improve coatings performance and functionality beyond traditional expectations. Organizers anticipate seeing a company logo on the title and acknowledgement slides. However, organizers do not expect the presentations to be a platform for new proprietary product introductions, specific trade name promotions, or a lengthy commercial for the speaker’s employer. Please keep this in mind when submitting your presentation.
