Important information for Conference Presenters:

Conference room facilities

The following facilities are available in each lecture theatre: Computer, Data Projector, lectern with microphone and whiteboard. Presenters can plug in laptops or memory sticks for powerpoint etc., and there will be free wifi access. There will be a Mac and PC in each room, and hand microphones and table microphones for use in panel and roundtable discussions. If these facilities do not meet the needs of your presentation, please contact Laura Fisher at [email protected] asap.

We encourage you to test your equipment prior to your presentation, either in the morning or during a break. There will be a tech assistant assigned to each room for the full duration of the conference to help with your A/V requirements. If you are using Skype or any other conferencing software, you should definitely see your tech assistant well before your session begins to ensure your presentation runs smoothly.

All abstracts will be available for public view in the conference section of the website, grouped by session, by Sunday 26 May. A printed version of the program will be available at the conference, however keep in mind that this program will not contain the abstracts.
