Regarding the audio-visual facilities available for the presentations
Q: How much presentation time does each team have?
A: Each team should have 15-20 minutes presentation time.
Q: What audio-visual equipment is available in the rooms of the conference?
A: All rooms have a computer, a data projector, and a overhead projector.
Q: If I want to use the data projector, what do I have to do: bring my laptop or simply bring my presentation on a CD-Rom or a memory stick?
A: BRING MEMORY STICKS. BRING A BACK UP TALK ON SLIDES IN THE EVENT OF DISASTER.
Q: Will I have access to internet during
my presentation if I bring my own computer?
Q: If my presentation is electronic, should I bring slides just in case?
A: As you all know, technology does not always work, and especially with 15-20 minute talks, you don't have much time to waste so I definitely recommend that you come prepared to give your talk with an overhead projector as well.
Q: I often participate in medical conferences and so my presentation is on 35mm slides. Do you have the right equipment?
Sorry, No slide projectors.
Q: This is my first presentation, is
there anything special that I should be aware of?
Q: I am presenting a poster, how big will be the board?
A: The poster boards are about 4 X 7 feet. There will be one poster on each side of the board.
