Instructions for Presentations

Oral Presentations

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 Submission:

All electronic talks we receive BY NOON on TUESDAY JULY 7 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
LastName_FirstName.ppt e.g.,Green_Paul.ppt

We prefer you submit via ftp to a read-only site as follows:

Login: anonymous
Passwd: your@email.address
cd /pub/snr09
put LastName_FirstName.ppt quit

If you prefer, you can send your electronic presentation by email to but send a separate email telling us, in case the spam filters reject a large file.

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.
