New this year – Disclosure Slide

All presenters are required to include a disclosure slide at the beginning of each presentation.

Presenter Mode

This year, the entire meeting will have the ability to run presenter mode in all session rooms. Presenter mode allows only you, the presenter, to view any associated notes on the lectern. This is completely optional to all presenters. To take advantage of this new feature, simply add your notes to your presentation as you develop them. Learn more about presenter mode in PowerPoint.

Key Take-away Slide

All presenters are required to include at least one key take-away slide in their presentations. Briefly summarize your key findings in a bullet point format; provide recommendations or actions to reinstate your message. Consider what "take-aways / key points" you want the attendees to remember from your presentation.

Format
All presentations at this year's Meeting will be in WIDESCREEN format. To take full advantage of the new widescreen format, we recommend that you build or convert your presentation to 16:9. For more information on how to change an existing 4:3 presentation into a 16:9 widescreen format, review the information below. For your convenience, the AASLD’s official Meeting PowerPoint template is in widescreen format.

For technical assistance regarding your presentation, email education@aasld.org.

  • If you choose not to use the widescreen template, your presentation will perform as expected, however, the presentation will be displayed with "pillar boxed" on the 16:9 screen. View example [JPG].
  • If you would prefer to use your own PowerPoint template, you can change an existing 4:3 presentation into a 16:9 widescreen format by following these few steps:
    • For PowerPoint 2010 and 2007, click the Design tab, and then click on Slides Sized For. In the drop-down menu, select On-Screen Show (16:9) and click OK.
    • For PowerPoint 2013, click the Design tab, and then click on Slide Size. In the drop-down menu, select Widescreen (16:9).
    • For PowerPoint 2016, click the Design tab, click on Page Setup. In the drop-down menu, select On-Screen Show (16:9) and click OK.

IMPORTANT: If you convert an existing presentation to widescreen, your slides will expand to the new size. If you have any videos or photos in an existing PowerPoint, they may need to be resized so they do not appear stretched. Also, be sure to check animations to ensure the elements line up correctly.

Key Take-Away Slide
All presenters are required to include at least one key take-away slide in their presentations.

Briefly summarize your key findings in a bullet point format; provide recommendations or actions to reinstate your message. Consider what “take-aways / key points” you want the attendees to remember from your presentation.
