TALKS:  Each Speaker should limit their talk to 15 minutes plus questions.  We will ask the session chairs to facilitate questions and try to start some sort of discussion.  You are talking to a lot of potential partners in the government, so don’t be shy about pointing out where your technology can be inserted.

DEMOS:  We are currently set up for a demo session on Thursday afternoon.  Prior to the demo session, each participant will get 5 minutes and a maximum of 3 PowerPoint slides to introduce their technology, demo or poster.  This is only meant as an introduction.  You should not give extensive details, just enough information to attract participants to your setup and begin a conversation. 

During the demo session, we will have a reception, and you will have a 6ft skirted table and power.  If you need anything else, we can try to arrange it through the hotel.

**If you are not currently scheduled for a  demo or poster, but would like to be, please let us know. (sdiut05@umiacs.umd.edu).
