Due to the large number presentations we will be using a speaker support model at the Conference Centre with technicians to manage the preparation of your presentation for display. The presentations will be copied from a central location and moved to the appropriate sessions machines via network.

For that reason all presentations need to submitted well in advance of the session they appear in in.

People presenting on the Tuesday morning should try to submit their powerpoint presentations by late Monday September 30 for speaker support during the Space Forum sessions.

Detailed instructions for delegates are available on how best to prepare their presentation for the conference here.

It is also possible to email presentations to speaker support instead of in person if they do not exceed 20MB in size. (refer to detailed instructions).
