Audio Visual
All of the session rooms will include the following standard equipment: one computer projection unit, one screen and microphones. If using the computer projection unit, please remember that you will be responsible for supplying the computer. Also, we will need to know the type of computer you will be using (PC or MAC) and the resolution of your presentation (see the form). If your presentation requires additional audio visual equipment, please list that information on the speaker information and commitment form (we will try to accommodate your request).

Speaker Commitment Form - Are Past Due - February 1
To ensure that we have your most current contact information, biography, and a/v requirements, we ask that you please complete the following commitment form.

Presentation Logistics
The program is divided up into 3 rooms - throughout three days. Each session on any particular day is then divided up into two 45 minute talks (35 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for Q&A). Both speakers in a given session should be present 10 minutes before the start of that session regardless of who speaks first. (This is to allow for an audio/visual check and an easy transition between speakers.) In addition, we ask that the presenter who speaks first in a session remain present throughout the remainder of the second talk in that session. Please feel free to again review the conference
for clarification on your presentation time or contact me directly at [email protected].

FYI: All presentations will be taking place at the The Westin Seattle Hotel. Exact meeting rooms are not posted on the Schedule-at-a-Glance.

Speaker Prep Room
The Speaker Prep Room will be open and available from 8:00 am-5:30 pm Monday-Wednesday. Please feel free to use this room to meet other participants and coordinate presentations. The location of the room is Stuart.

Again, we all thank you for taking the time to review all the above information and look forward to seeing you in Seattle.
