Helpful resources for confirmed presenters of this year's conference

 

Uploading Your Presentations to the Conference App

Presenters should upload their presentations (PDF preferred and no larger than 10MB) directly to the STFM Events mobile app.

Presenters will receive an email from STFM via our approved show vendor, Pathable, containing login information and directions for uploading to the mobile app in April. If you do not receive the email, contact Allison Woodworth - STFM Program Coordinator, by email, awoodworth@stfm.org or by phone, (913) 800-5675.

There is no deadline for uploading your presentation. However, we highly recommend that you upload your materials before the conference so attendees can become familiar with your session topic ahead of time.

Along with uploading your presentation to the mobile app, please upload your presentation to the STFM Resource Library, as well. The mobile app will not be available after the conference, so uploading your presentation to the STFM Resource Library allows the presentation to be available to attendees later.
 
You will need to bring your presentation on a flash drive to use with the computers in the session rooms during your actual presentation. If you plan to use video or audio as part of your presentation, please be sure to include it on your flash drive. We do not recommend live streaming during your presentation, as we cannot guarantee an adequate WiFi connection.

 

Note About Session Scheduling

Dear STFM Conference Presenters,

Congratulations again on having your work accepted for presentation at the 2020 STFM Annual Spring Conference.  We received a near record number of submissions for this year's conference, and the Program and Research Committees accepted nearly 80% for presentation. As you can imagine, with this many presentations and presenters, scheduling can be challenging.  STFM has scheduled presentations according to the "lead presenter" and topics, and has done our best to avoid scheduling overlaps.  Obviously, with nearly 1000 presenters, there may be some overlapping presentations for secondary co-presenters. We hope you can plan your presentation responsibilities accordingly. Thank you for your understanding.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference in Salt Lake City!

Sincerely,

STFM Staff
