Southeastern Branch Presenter Information

Oral Presenters

Presentations should be created in a format compatible with PowerPoint (.pptx). All meeting room computers are PCs, so a presenter who creates a presentation using a Mac should test the file on a PC computer prior to the meeting. 

Presenters are expected to upload their presentation not less than two hours prior to their scheduled session. A computer for presentation uploads will be located in the Heathcote Room during the following times:

Sunday, March 17: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Monday, March 18: 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Tuesday, March 19: 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Wednesday, March 20: 7:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Folders with Session or Symposium Names will be provided on the desktop. Please upload your talk in the appropriate folder. Your presentation should be named with your presentation number (to be assigned in the online program by early March), last name, first name. 

Presenters who fail to upload more than two hours prior to their session may upload in the session room as long as it does not impact the timing of the session or any other presentations.
