AV INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHAIRS & SPEAKERS
CHAIRS / SPEAKERS GUIDELINES
Please locate your session room at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the session. The chairperson's role is to facilitate the smooth running of the session and to encourage and monitor debate when appropriate. We ask that you ensure that speakers strictly observe the time allocated to them.
Each meeting room will be equipped with a screen, a computer running MS Powerpoint and a data projector. Hand-held radio microphones will be available for questions from the participants and there are microphones on the lectern for the presenter/chairperson. Students will be assigned to each session to assist with the roving microphones.
Oral presentations will have to be saved on a USB stick and use the PC in situ. If this is not possible, and you wish to run your presentation directly from your own PC, please make sure you also have your presentation backed up onto a memory stick.
PLEASE NOTE that the data projectors only connect directly to PC laptops - NOT Macs! If you can only show your presentation from a Mac laptop, you must provide your own laptop and the correct VGA adaptor to connect your Mac to the projector. Please, be aware that there are four different kinds of adaptors and it is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct one.
Please remember to use embedded files, and do not use files linked to other files as they will not appear in your presentation. This is particularly important if you are showing video clips within your presentation.
Please ensure your presentation is loaded during the coffee break/lunch break prior to your session taking place. For presentations taking place in the first session of the day, the rooms will be open 30 minutes prior to the session start time.
If you encounter problems loading your presentation, please contact the student helpers who will be easily identifiable and present in each lecture room.
A message board will be located next to the Registration Desk during the conference and you are encouraged to check it regularly.
INTERNET / EMAIL ACCESS
There will be wireless access in some areas of the University.
