Oral Presentation Guidelines

Please read the following guidelines and information to facilitate the successful delivery of your oral presentation. Give considerable thought to the design and preparation of your presentation so that it is effective and informative.

All presenters must upload their file(s) in the Boston room at least two hours prior to the start of their session. Authors are not able to present using their own devices.

Laser Pointer Safety: 

SPIE requires use of a Class II or Class IIIa red laser pointer from a reliable and credible manufacturer.

  • SPIE Laser Pointers will be provided in all meeting rooms, and will be found at the presentation counter located near the front of the room.
  • If you wish to use your own laser pointer you must have it tested at Speaker Check-in.
  • Please be mindful when using any laser pointer device to keep it only pointed at the screen, and alert any persons standing or sitting anywhere near the pointers direction. In many states, it is a criminal misdemeanor to shine a laser pointer at individuals "who perceive they are at risk." Read further information about laser pointer safety.
