THE WORKSHOP ENDS

Presentation Guidelines

Please refer to the program for your session date and time. Each author has 15 minutes for their presentation. With approximately 12 minutes given for the presentation followed by 3 minutes for questions and answers. All presentations should be in Power Point or PDF formats.

Our meeting room is equipped with the following:

We encourage you to use the supplied computer which will have the follow software installed: Microsoft Office 2003, Adobe Acrobat, QuickTime, Macromedia Flash Player, and Internet Explorer. If your presentation was created on a MAC and converted to run on a PC please test it before you come to the meeting. Make sure that the hyperlinks still function. If your presentation was produced on a Mac and it includes embedded video, your video will most likely NOT play automatically on the PC platform. You will need to either convert your .mov files to .avi format or create a link in your slide show to an external .mov file. If you choose the latter, your animation will play in a separate QuickTime window, outside of your PowerPoint presentation. We strongly recommend that you test your Mac-produced presentation on a Windows based system before arriving at the meeting.
