Prepare your slides and transfer to your own USB stick.
Aspect ratio: for concurrent (parallel) oral symposia presentations, suggested aspect ratio is 4:3. For plenary talks (Primrose A), the suggested aspect ratio is 16:9.
Arrive at your session room 30 minutes prior to the session start to connect your USB stick to session room laptop (PC running Windows 10 and MS Office 2016 with PowerPoint). There is a hub so you can leave your stick OR you are a welcome to save to the Desktop.
There is a Speaker Practice Room (location TBD) so that you may preview your presentation slides on a PC laptop (identical to session room PC laptops --set with 4:3 aspect ratio screen like the parallel session rooms).
Speakers will not be able to present from their own laptop, but instead must pre-load onto session room PC laptop.
Posters must remain up all day on your designated day - early removal is not permitted. Posters not removed by 4 pm will be placed at the registration desk and discarded if not claimed by the end of the conference.
