We will have both a Mac and a Windows machine at the podium. If you think a computer/OS mismatch might present problems, please export to PDF. If you have animations in your presentation, it is highly recommended that you test them on our laptops at the meeting (e.g., during a coffee break), because from past experience, these have a high failure rate.
Electronic SubmissionAll electronic talks we receive BY NOON BOSTON TIME on MONDAY JULY 12 will be pre-loaded to smooth talk transitions, help us keep to schedule, and insure the maximum available time for your talk and discussion. Please make SURE to name your electronic file
If you do not have any fancy effects or movies, we strongly recommend that you upload a PDF version of your talk, which is the only way to truly insure that all your fonts and graphics appear as intended.
We prefer you submit via ftp to a read-only site as follows:
ftp sao-ftp.cfa.harvard.edu Login: anonymous Passwd: email@example.com cd /pub/accr10 bin put LastName_FirstName.ppt quitYou could also send your electronic presentation by email to firstname.lastname@example.org but send a separate email telling us, in case the spam filters reject a large file.
Finally, if instead you must bring your completed talk on flash memory stick or CDROM, please see Ryan Foltz or Ray Hemond at the meeting to get it loaded onto the machines as far in advance of your talk as possible.
