There will be a technician in the conference room to help you get set up. The technician can copy your presentation onto the available computers, or assist you in getting your own computer connected.
When preparing your presentation, use Helvetica or Times New Roman fonts. An unusual font may not translate to the computer used for presenting
Speakers should create their presentation using a 16:9 aspect ratio and select a landscape layout.
Test your final presentation on a separate computer to ensure that fonts are standard and that additional content, such as movies, have been embedded rather than merely linked.
Presenters must bring a copy of all external files in their PowerPoint presentations, including movie and sounds files (.wav, .avi, .mpg, etc.).
Please fill the AV form
If you upload your presentation:

OR save all files associated with the presentation on a USB flash drive or an external hard drive and test your presentation with the technician before your presentation (see timeslots)
