SPEAKER INSTRUCTIONS ALL SPEAKERS and poster presenters must register and pay the appropriate registration fee to attend the meet- ing. Invited speakers should contact their symposium organizer or division program chair to clarify terms of their invitation. All presenters should prepare for their presentation by verifying the following details: the status of your abstract at (using your ACS ID to log in to the system); mode of presentation (oral or poster); and the time, length, and location of your presentation. Speakers should arrive in their presentation rooms at least 30 minutes before their scheduled speaking time. Poster presenters should set up their poster at least one hour before the start of their poster session. If you need to withdraw your presentation, please send a withdrawal notice to and contact your symposium organizer immediately. TECHNICAL SESSION EQUIPMENT. Each technical session meeting room will be equipped with the following: LCD projector, screen, podium, podium microphone or lapel microphone, and laser pointer. Speakers need to pro- vide their own laptops or arrange for specialty equipment directly with their symposium organizer and/or division program chair. To request other spe- cialty equipment (at the standard fee), contact an ACS Operations Office dur- ing the meeting. SPEAKER READY ROOMS & AUDIO- VISUAL SERVICE CENTERS. Present- ers may use the speaker ready rooms to preview their presentation, ensure compatibility with our LCD projec- tors, or fulfill last-minute audiovisual equipment orders. We strongly recom- mend that all presenters come to the speaker ready room the day before their presentation to check for con- nectivity and resolution. The hours of operation will be from 3:00 to 5:00 PM Saturday and 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM Sunday through Thursday. Visit the ACS Operations Office at any ACS property for speaker ready room locations. Speaker ready rooms are not equipped with copy machines. There is a FedEx Office located in the Hall D lobby of the convention center that provides a range of services including computer access and copying, faxing, printing, and shipping. POSTER SESSIONS. All materials must be confined to a 4-foot-high by 8-foot- wide display board in the convention center and 4-foot-high by 6-foot-wide display board in hotels. Presenters must mount their poster one hour before the scheduled session start time. Poster numbers supplied by ACS will be in the upper corner of each poster board, and this number corre- sponds with the number assigned to each poster in the technical program. Pushpins will be available at the poster session. Presenters must remain with their posters for the duration of their scheduled session as indicated in the technical program. All posters must remain up until the session ends and then must be removed within one hour. ACS cannot assume responsibility for materials beyond these time limits. SCI-MIX POSTER SESSION ONLY. Sci-Mix presenters may begin poster setup at 7:15 PM (45 minutes before the session begins). Each presenter may be accompanied by one assistant only, and both people are required to check in before entering the hall. After exiting, presenters will not be permit- ted to reenter the hall until the session begins at 8:00 PM. P R O G R A M S U M M A RY ABSTRACTS & PREPRINTS ONLINE TECHNICAL PROGRAM.
