To be honest, I don't know the answer.

Now I do.  I finally read the case Isaac cited above (mentioned it in another topic).  In pertinent part (although arguably dicta):
With regard to scientific presentations, it is important to note than an entirely oral presentation at a scientific conference that includes neither slides nor copies of the presentation is without question not a “printed publication” for the purposes of 35 U.S.C. § 102(b).  Furthermore, a presentation that includes a transient display of slides is likewise not necessarily a “printed publication.”
