For Presenters

Congratulations on being invited to present at the 2023 OMSCS Conference! Below, you will find your next steps, as well as presentation details and what to expect the day of your presentation.

Next Steps

Here are the important next steps you need to take to confirm your spot at the conference.

By March 12 at 11:59 pm ET

Register for the conference using the link and unique registration code that were emailed to you.

**IMPORTANT** Please do not share the registration link or code with anyone, as they are for presenters only. This is to ensure that all presenters are able to register for the conference.

By April 9 at 11:59 pm ET

Send the following to

  • Your digital presentation materials (such as your slideshow, or anything else you'll be using to present). If these are too large to send over email, let us know, and we'll provide another way for you to get them to us.
  • Your updated presentation title and abstract. Your acceptance email contains the original title and abstract you submitted. Send us any changes you'd like to make. Remember that abstracts must be no more than 250 words. If your original abstract is longer than this, please edit it to within the word limit. We intend to include these in the conference program, so keep that in mind when editing.
  • A short (50 words or less) description of your presentation. We intend for this to be included in the conference program.
  • Your name as you would like it to appear in the conference program.
  • The names of anyone who collaborated with you on the work you're presenting (e.g., the names of your teammates if you are presenting a group project). Due to capacity limitations, we are allowing only one presenter for each presentation, but we will include the names of collaborators in the conference program. We hope to offer more flexibility on this at future conferences!
  • [OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED] A brief (75 words or less) bio of yourself to be included in the conference program.
  • [OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED] A photo of yourself to be included in the conference program. Your photo will be edited to be a square (equal width and height in pixels) if it is not already. High-resolution pictures are preferred.
  • Any technical support you will need beyond what is already provided. See "What to Expect at the Conference" below for more information. Traditional Talks and Demonstrations will be livestreamed to virtual attendees; let us know if there will be any issues with this.
  • [WORKSHOP PRESENTERS ONLY] The maximum number of attendees your workshop can support, and the ideal number of attendees. Consider how effective your workshop will be for larger crowds and what attendance size would make for the best experience. We will use this number to limit registration for your workshop.
  • [DEMONSTRATION PRESENTERS ONLY] Let us know if your demo can be livestreamed. It's okay if it can't, we just need to know that in advance.

**For consistency, we may edit written information for style and grammar, but no content will be changed.**

Presentation Details

There will be three types of presentations at this year's conference: Traditional Talks, Demonstrations, and Workshops. Details for each are below; please adhere to the specified times.

  • Traditional Talks will be 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions at the end. They will be open to all in-person attendees and livestreamed to virtual attendees.
  • Demonstrations will be 10 minutes. They will be open to all in-person attendees and livestreamed to virtual attendees.
  • Workshops will be 45 minutes in smaller breakout rooms. They will not be livestreamed. Presenters should remember to allow time within the 45 minutes for questions, whether throughout the workshop or at the end.

What to Expect at the Conference

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • You will have access to a desktop computer that will have your presentation loaded on it (we will use the most recent version as of May 2). We recommend you use this computer to present, to help with the transitions between presenters.
  • You may present from your laptop, which can connect to the room’s presentation console through HDMI. The HDMI cable is provided. We will also have some HDMI adapters available, but we highly recommend bringing your own.
  • A mic (either lapel or handheld) will be provided.
  • Be sure to bring a backup of your presentation materials on a USB drive just in case!

We'll be updating this page as the conference date approaches, but if you have any questions, email
