What is the Speaker's Breakfast?
Please plan to attend the Speakers Breakfast at 07:00 AM to 8:00 a.m. on the day of your session as follows:
Tuesday, September 16 - Salon B - Delta Hotel
Wednesday September 17 - Marconi Room - Main Ballroom - Convention Centre
Thursday, September 18 - Alcock and Brown Rooms - Convention Centre

Tables will be marked with the individual sessions so that speakers can meet their session Chairs/Co-Chairs to confirm their presence, complete speaker introduction details, and arrange for their presentations to be installed on the computer in the session meeting room.

What is the Speaker's Ready Room?
There will be a Speaker Ready Room in Governor Duckworth Room - Delta Hotel which will have 3 PCs available with PowerPoint for speakers to review their presentations. There will be technical assistance available in this room.

What equipment will be available?
Each session room will be furnished with a projector and a laptop computer running Windows 7. If you have animation files, use a DVD in your presentation, or have unconventional requirements please advise the Chair/Co- Chair well in advance. To avoid delays and technical problems during the session, please do not bring your own computer unless your presentation absolutely requires it. If using your own laptop is unavoidable, you must bring all the necessary adaptors needed for compatibility with our projectors (VGA port, also known as an RGB port). To ensure compatibility, you MUST confirm functionality in the session room at least 30 minutes before the session begins.

How do I load my presentation?
Presenters should meet with the Session Chair in the designated session room 20 minutes before the start of the session to upload their presentation. It is the speaker?s responsibility to ensure that their presentation is properly loaded. Your Session Chairperson?s responsibility is to see that presenters have successfully loaded their presentations. Limited IT support will be available in the session room. Presenters should not presume their presentation uploads can be conducted at the last minute without problem. Please upload early, allow time for difficulties, and confirm that your presentation displays properly well in advance of your session.

How long is my presentation?
A total of 20 minutes is allotted for each presentation, including speaker transition and Q&A. Strict adherence to the agenda is required since conference participants expect presentations to occur at the scheduled times. Presentation times must not be altered and gaps should be filled with presentations provided or discussions led by the Session Chairs.
