How to Upload Your Slide Presentation
Presentations must be uploaded by Friday, 14 July 2023 to allow enough time for PIM to review content.
Before uploading your presentation, please be sure the following four criteria have been met:
1. For Department of Defense presenters, the individual presenter is responsible for obtaining the appropriate clearance from their local Public Affairs, OPSEC offices, or other organizational offices, as locally required. Although not required, we highly recommend that military presenters also include a clearance slug on the slide. Example shown below:
2. All presentations must include a Disclaimer/Conflict of Interest Slide (samples below), which needs to be listed on one of your first slides preceding your presentation slides.
3. Proper playback:
a) Presentation is in PPT format and set to 16:9 wide format
b) If you are using videos, be sure that they are embedded and compressed
c) File size must not exceed 400MB
4. Naming convention: please name your slide presentation using these 4 elements separated by an underscore (_):
SESSION DAY (3-letter abbreviation, either Mon, Tue, Wed or Thu)
SESSION START TIME (this is the start time of your session, not your individual presentation)
ABSTRACT ID # (unique to your abstract: MHSRS-23-#####)
