Speakers and Presenters

VIS Paper presenters have 20 minutes — including questions — for their talk. Please be respectful of this time limit.

All meeting rooms will be equipped with a projector with a minimum native resolution of 1280 X 800. Each room is equipped with a “state of the art”, industry standard, HDMI scaler that will handle a maximum resolution of 1920 X 1200.

To gain maximum size and benefit on the screen, we encourage speakers to utilize the 16x9 wide format Powerpoint templates.

We will have switched connections for presentations from laptops.

In addition each room will have a standalone Windows 8 laptop with MS Office 2013, IE browser, CDRW drive, 4GB RAM.

Presenters are encouraged to bring their own laptop (with video adapter if your laptop does not have standard HD15 (VGA), HDMI, or DVI connections) for panels, papers, and presentations. For speakers not bringing their own laptops, the best options for basic Microsoft PowerPoint presentations are to bring along a portable USB drive or burn the presentation file onto a CD along with any necessary software plug-ins. Time will be available the evening previous to your presentation to load your presentation onto the actual PC you will be using, with time to check for any movie/sound link issues. A switchbox will be available at each lectern for multiple machine connections.

We support computer audio in each of the rooms with 2+ connections that are shared between the presenters. We also have 2+ wireless lavilier mics in each room to be shared between presenters.

Presenters are expected to arrive to their session 15 minutes early to meet their session chair and receive final instructions.
