Speakers: If you have not submitted your presentation via the website to Conference Exchange prior to the meeting, please do so in the Speaker Ready Room the day before your presentation.

Speakers may submit presentation files in PowerPoint (.ppt or .pps), Microsoft Word (.doc), or portable document format (.pdf) format. Presentations created using PowerPoint 2010 should be saved as an earlier version and tested on Windows XP prior to the meeting. Presentations may be saved on a USB hard drive (Pocket Drive, iPod), USB flash drive, CD-ROM, CD-R, or DVD.

If your graphics or video clips are not embedded in your presentation, please be sure that you bring them as well. We highly recommend that all speakers visit the Speaker Ready Room for an opportunity to practice their presentations and get comfortable with the equipment. Technicians will be available to assist you.

If your presentation was created on a Macintosh and converted to run on a PC, please test it before you come to the meeting. Make sure that the hyperlinks still function, and avoid using a rewritable CD (CD-RW), as we've encountered compatibility problems with them. If it includes embedded video, your video will most likely NOT play automatically on the PC platform. You will need to either convert your .mov files to .avi format or create a link in your slide show to an external .mov file. If you choose the latter, your animation will play in a separate QuickTime window, outside of your PowerPoint presentation. We strongly recommend that you test your Mac-produced presentation on a Windows based system before arriving at the meeting.
