Presenters should load their presentation slides (PowerPoint or PDF format), as well as any supporting materials (e.g. videos) to the laptops in the room designated for your presentation prior to the time of the session for your presentation.
You should bring the presentation files on a USB device, or download them from the internet on-site. Please allow enough time for your presentation download and subsequent upload. Technical assistance will be provided on-site to help you with the download/upload. PowerPoint (Office 10 and older versions) on Windows operating system will be used for presentations. Mac computer users can use their own computers for presentation, but they must also provide their own VGA adapter, or alternatively export their presentation to Microsoft Office PowerPoint format.
