Presentations must be uploaded onto the central server at least two hours prior to the beginning of your session. Speakers will not be allowed to connect personal computers to the projector, and session chairs will not be able to load presentations during oral sessions.
At the conference, the "Presentation Upload Center" located in the Prairie Center Internet Cafe will be available for checking the content of your presentation and uploading it to the central server. Presentations may be uploaded from CD, DVD, or USB flash drive. Only Power Point presentations (.ppt) and Adobe Acrobat files (.pdf) will be accepted, as the available software includes Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader.
A laptop computer, projector, laser pointer, slide advancer, and lapel microphone will be available in each oral session room. Your uploaded presentation will be available from the central server in each session room.
