Format for Paper & Presentation







Papers and Presentations will be posted on the METRANS website after the conference unless the author requests that it not be posted. A paper is NOT required for a submission in order to be a presenter for I-NUF 2022.

Instructions for Presentations

All sessions are 90 minutes. Presentations generally will each be around 15 - 20 minutes depending on the number of presentations in the session. (We will know more once the agenda is fully developed.) That gives time in each session for questions and answers. The presenter is responsible for bringing any handouts. Arrangements will be made in advance to load the presentations to the laptop computer in the breakout rooms. Presenters should bring their presentations on a flash drive.  All PowerPoints should also be sent in advance to [email protected] by May 15, 2022.
