Uploading your presentation files
There are several options for accessing your digital presentation file/s in the presentation venue.

  1. If you would like to upload your presentation before the conference starts we recommend that you upload to your own personal webspace (for example, Box, DropBox etc) and access the link via the Internet from the venue. If you choose this option we strongly recommend that you still bring along a copy on a usb device as well.
  2. After you arrive at the conference you can take your presentation on a USB memory stick to the tech support desk which is next to the main registration desk in the St David Foyer. The support desk staff will check which room your presentation is in and will upload your presentation to the appropriate session room. Please be aware that all seminar rooms are set up by default to use the Windows PC. If you wish to use a Macintosh desktop you must notify the tech support desk. We strongly recommend that you still bring your presentation along on a memory stick as well just in case there are any last minute changes to venues.
  3. You can bring your own laptop computer to the venue and connect it to the data projector – if you require specific AV connectors please ensure that you bring these with you.
  4. You can simply come along to the venue before your presentation and upload your presentation file to the venue computer using a USB memory stick.

Staff will be on hand in all the presentation rooms to assist you to access and check your presentations.
If you have any non-standard requirements please let us know ahead of time by emailing (subject TECHSUPPORT).

Poster guidelines

The poster session is scheduled as the final session on the first day of ascilite2014, Monday 24th November. The draft programme is available here:

Delegates must bring a hard copy of their poster for display in the poster session. Posters will be displayed in the main foyer and atrium area of the St David complex and we recommend leaving your poster up for the duration of the conference. Delegates will be having tea and lunch breaks close to this area so this is a great opportunity to share your work with colleagues.

Posters for display on posterboards should be:
A1 and may be portrait or landscape format.
A0 in portrait format only.

Velcro dots are available from the main registration desk for you to mount your poster from Sunday onwards – feel free to use your own as well. You should mount your poster on the board with your poster number.

Please ensure that your poster is mounted on the correct board ready for the Monday afternoon poster session which starts at 4:30.

Staff will be on hand in the foyer and atrium areas to assist with mounting posters during Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th. If you have any questions, concerns or requests on the day, do check with them.

If you would like to make your poster available in digital form during the conference and from the conference website, please upload it to your own cloud-based storage service (e.g. Box or DropBox) and email a link to the poster (subject POSTERLINK).
