- Presentations may only be given as PowerPoint presentations. No other audio-visual medium (e.g., slide, video, or overhead) or software is allowed. Note: If you will not be using PowerPoint (no a/v support required), please inform the IT Coordinator. This will ensure all the presentations are accounted for prior to the sessions.
- We will be working with laptops from various sources, some with access issues (e.g. most DoD laptops do not allow the use of a USB device) and various versions of Microsoft PowerPoint. To avoid conflicts and ensure your presentation performs properly we urge speakers to follow the guidance below.
- Create or save your presentation as PowerPoint 2003 or earlier versions. Prepare your presentation as a single PowerPoint file to run on an IBM compatible computer with Microsoft Office. Save your file as a normal PowerPoint file (.ppt). Do not save your file as a PowerPoint 2007 (.pptx) or PowerPoint Show (.pps) file. If you are providing a presentation for one of the DoD Breakout Sessions, contact the session organizer to find out the version of PowerPoint they will be using. Mac computers will NOT be available.
- Presentations must be submitted in advance of the conference to check for software compatibility problems and to transfer to session laptops.
