Aerial View – San Francisco IFSA 2009 Guidelines for Key Note, Plenary and Oral speakers
Each speaker is required to arrive at the beginning of the break preceding their respective session to check in with the session chair to accomplish one of the two options: (1) transfer their presentation to the session A/V computer system using either a "thumb drive" or CD, or (2) connect their personal computer to the room's A/V system to confirm compatibility for use by the presenter. Presentations using overhead transparencies are not being supported.

Speakers are strongly encouraged to verify their presentations as early as possible using the equipment available at the Speaker-Ready Room (Mission Room on the 3rd floor of the conference hotel). Technician help will be available in the Speaker-Ready Room for creating a CD of the presenter's talk, if necessary, including digitizing overheads into a CD format. Those needing help meeting these guidelines will need to visit the Speaker-Ready Room during the following days and hours:

All oral sessions will be equipped with a LCD projector, a Windows-based PC computer, a Microsoft Office-based Macintosh computer, a lapel microphone, and a laser pointer. Presentations in either a 'pdf' or 'ppt/pptx' format are strongly encouraged.

Please note that session chairs will be instructed that session time lost due to technical difficulties from not following the above guidelines will be subtracted from the presenters allocated time.
