Conference Technology – Presenters
- Join the conversation on Twitter at #EERS18
- Presentation computer access to the Internet is provided by the regular wireless connectivity available from the Seaview. It has been fairly reliable in past years but as always, presenters are strongly cautioned against counting on connectivity or to have back-up plans in place in case of technical issues.
Please review the following guidelines for presentation materials for all sessions other than pre-conference workshops. If you have any questions or special requirements not covered below, direct them by email to Kirk Knestis not less than 10 days before the conference.
- Each presenter must bring his or her presentation on a USB drive.
- Presenters will use computers connected to projectors in the breakout rooms, provided by conference organizers.
- Presentation computers will be running Windows and have Microsoft PowerPoint installed.
- Auxillary speakers will be available for audio presentation content, integral to the projectors provided in the presentation rooms.
- If you have multimedia presentation content please confirm your software requirements with Kirk in advance.
- Presentations must be transfered to a folder on the desktop of the computer provided. Copy your presentation to the folder (drag and drop or copy and paste), then remove your USB drive. Note that you may be in a session with other presenters, so all presentations must be copied to the folder prior to the beginning of the session. Attempting to run presentations off of the USB drive will potentially result in technical problems (e.g., frozen presentations).
- Presentations will be left in these folders for collection and uploading to the Conference Materials list on the EERS web site. If you cannot leave a copy of your presentation (e.g., protection of study participants, intellectual property limitations), simply delete it from the folder and empty the trash when you are done.
- Presenters may bring their presentations in PDF format. Presentations not in this format will be converted for uploading to the EERS web site.
- Since presentations will be archived for future reference, please be sensitive to file size (e.g., inclusion of graphics). If your presentation includes media or is unusually large for any reason, please consider providing a “lite” version of your presentation to share on the EERS web site.
