Rooms for panel and individual presentations, workshops, works-in-progress, and Ignite sessions will have a projector and screen. Presenters will need to bring their own laptop AND CONNECTOR. For SIGs, roundtables, and presentations marked as "Other," AV is not provided.
They have both VGA & HDMI ports. Presenters are responsible for bringing their own cords.
Clothes. (You can wear what’s comfortable for you--if you’re in business casual, you’ll undoubtedly be just fine.)
There is no official chair listed for any session, so presenters will need to work together. Usually, people present in the order listed in the program. The first person listed can introduce the session overall, and then each presenter can follow and give their information. Do remember to stay within your time limits, and hold Q & A till the end.
Ideally, everyone would stay for the whole of a session (and we know that’s not the norm for every conference). If you know that you’ll need to step out early, then please look to take a chair in the back or by the door do you can depart as unobtrusively as possible. And do try to leave in between presentations rather than in the middle of one.
North Market is not a bad choice: https://www.northmarket.com/. It’s walking distance from our hotel.
The best place to start is usually at the registration table. People there can either answer your question or will direct you to someone who can.
Yes. Check in with the registration table, and we can arrange to have one sent to you.
At the conference, you undoubtedly will run into people whose work you admire, and it’s fine to geek out a little. Even better, though, is to introduce yourself and start a conversation. They might ask you what you’re working on, and you can ask them the same. The people here are a pretty open, personable group, and you should take advantage of this opportunity to connect and network.
Actually, no. We’ve found that anger does not improve either speed or accuracy in our work. We do want you to have the best conference experience possible, and we’ll do whatever we can to support you. Do remember that everyone working at the conference is volunteering. (However, if you really do want to yell at someone, find Mike--he is practiced at this and will be happy to have you loft some verbal volleys his way.)
Um . . . yeah.
By all means.
