Q #7) What technology is available in the room where I will be presenting?

If you have prepared your presentation via a multimedia interface, such as PowerPoint, Prezi, Google Slides, etc., you may either:

1. Bring your own laptop with the appropriate compatibility (for instance, if you need a hookup to our projectors, please ensure that your computer either has an HDMI port, or you bring a dongle which allows HDMI connections)

2. Bring along a USB flash drive that contains your presentation, and we can be sure to provide you the appropriate hardware to have your presentation appear stellar!

We will provide accouterments to hang all posters. Your posters should meet the guidelines set forth in the Call for Papers.
