PowerPoint Presenters:
  • Bring your presentation on a Windows readable USB flash Drive or CD-ROM.
  • Make sure that you close or “finalize” your presentation file when create a CD. If you omit this step, you cannot access the CD from any other computer.
  • Only the standard fonts (e.g., Times Roman, Helvetica, Arial, Times New Roman) are accepted for your presentation file, and unusual fonts may not be displayed properly on the computers in session rooms.
  • Include any external files utilized e.g. movie files in the same folder as your presentation. Copy the entire folder to the USB flash Drive or CD ROM.
  • Video clips (other than certain animated gif files) are not embedded in PowerPoint presentations; you will need to bring the separate video files with you and submit them along with your presentation file.
  • The computers in the session room and speaker ready room will support Windows PC only.
    (No Macintosh Computers)

Users of Macintosh Computers:
  • You should bring your own Macintosh, since there would be technical issues that can arise when PowerPoint files created on a Mac are run on a Windows PC.

  • Speakers using their own laptops MUST HAVE a VGA D-sub 15pin female output. Special video output cable is required for some laptops to use the D-sub 15pin to connect to external monitors and data projectors. Please note that we are not equipped with that special cable and you must bring it in case it is necessary.
    The laptop output resolution should be no more than XGA (1024 x 768). The higher resolutions than the native resolution (1024 x 768) would possibly lose some information or not project by forcing the data projector into a compression mode.

Slide Projection of 2x2 slides and Overhead Projectors are NOT provided.
