Uploading Presentation Materials

Presenters at selected APS meetings, such as Section meetings, are strongly encouraged to supplement their abstract with presentation materials. Links to uploaded materials will appear in the online meeting program next to your abstract listing. Providing your presentation materials in advance will allow attendees to view them in advance and better engage with your presentation.

Getting Ready to Upload

You may upload one of each of the following:

  1. PowerPoint or PDF Format Presentation Slides

Invitation to Upload Files
APS will send abstract presenters an email invitation to upload presentation materials. This email is only intended for the speaker of the talk. If you are the submitter and not the speaker, do not use the link in the email, but forward it to the speaker.
