Audio Visual Equipment

****NEW FOR 2003****
No slide projectors or video equipment will be provided.

It is essential that you take advantage of the technical staff in the Speaker Preview Room. The Speakers' Preview Room is located in the Mariner 1 room on the Port Royal Level of the World Trade & Convention Centre. Please check with that your presentation is assigned to the correct session and that the presentation was received in good condition.


We will have PC-based computers available for your use loaded with MS Office 2000. Anyone participating in the PowerPoint for Physicians must bring their own laptop for this course.

You must send your presentation to our office by 1 June. We will ensure it is loaded on the on-site computer – ready for you.

Bring a backup copy with you and check in with the technician in the Speaker Preview Room well before you are scheduled to speak.

Name your files by your last name and session or date (SMITHRetina or SMITHSunday)

Only COS staff is able to access these files.

Confidentiality will be preserved. All presentations will be permanently removed from the on-site computers.

Contact our office if you will use other software or a different version of PowerPoint.

A speaker timer system will be used. Please pay attention to the lights – Red means STOP. We need to keep the presentations on time. Most talks are 7 minutes only (unless otherwise noted in your correspondence with the session chair).

Please advise the COS office if you have handouts. All copying must be done prior to your arrival at the hotel. The COS can provide you with the correct number of copies needed for your meeting.
