Technical Program Information

The first character of the program ID number represents the day of the Conference (Monday [1] thru Friday [5]). The second character (E, L, M, SP, PL) denotes the conference area (Electronics, Large Scale, Materials, Special Session, Plenary). Or or Po refer to an Oral or Poster session. 1, 2 or 3 represent the morning or afternoon time slots. A, B, C, etc., differentiate the oral sessions on a given day in the morning or afternoon time slot. The final digits denote the order within the session. Examples for a morning, afternoon and late afternoon sessions are 1EOr1A-01, 1EOr2A-01, and 1EOr3A-01; examples for a morning and afternoon poster sessions are 2EPo1A-01 and 2EPo2A-01.

Poster Boards Numbering: 1 – 94 for Large Scale, 95 – 144 for Electronics and 145 – 193 for Large Materials. Each poster presentation has been assigned to a poster board number which has been added to the presentation ID, see the additional number in brackets. Examples are: 2EPo1B-04 [110], 3MPo2A-09 [152]; 4LPo1K-05 [87].
