General & Audiovisual Equipment Information

As you make final preparations for your presentation at the SICB meeting in New Orleans in January, please use the following information to prepare.

  1. Each presentation is scheduled for 20 minutes which usually consists of a 15 minute presentation and 5 minutes for discussion and questions.

  2. Every session at the meeting will be furnished with an overhead projector, a computer and a computer projector. Slide projectors and VCRs are in sessions only if they were requested by presenters at the time of abstract submission. It is strongly suggested that you bring back-up overheads in case of equipment failure. If you use computer projection please bring a copy of your presentation file on floppy or CD-ROM.

  3. You MUST come to the Ready Room (Bacchus/Iberville) to have the student in the Ready Room check you in and to practice your presentation. There will be a computer, computer projector, overhead projector and caromate projector (for slides) so that you can practice using the equipment that will be in each session room. If you have any difficulties, tell the student in the Ready Room and he or she will have an audio visual technician meet with you to resolve the problem. It is suggested that you come to the Ready Room at least one time slot prior to your presentation.

We look forward to your presentation -- safe travels to New Orleans.
