[Speaker Preparation Room]
All presenters should check in at the Speaker Prep Room (Room 8, San Diego Convention Center) soon after they pick up their credentials at SIGGRAPH 2003 Speaker Registration. This is the perfect time for you to confirm your AV and computer equipment requests, rehearse your presentation, and inquire about any additional presentation needs you may have while at the conference.
Again this year, the conference is NOT offering traditional slide projectors as part of the standard room setup. The demand for 35mm slide projectors is practically nonexistent. If you need slide projectors, please let us know by 15 June 2003, to ensure that we have them.
We strongly urge you to format your presentation to use computer graphics and the video projection system in place in your session room.
Presentation Technology Available at SIGGRAPH 2003
Each session room at SIGGRAPH 2003 has a Macintosh and a PC equipped with fast processors, loads of RAM, network connectivity, and removable media choices. These computers are interfaced to ultra-bright, high-resolution video/data projectors. All the rooms are capable of supporting 1024 X 768 native resolution. If your presentation looks good on your monitor, it will look good on the SIGGRAPH 2003 projection screen.
SIGGRAPH 2003 Integrated Presentation Server (IPS)
Utilizing the resources available in the Speaker Preparation Room, contributors can load, edit, tweak, and test their electronic presentations. AVW-TELAV staff will upload their material to the presentation server for delivery to the computers in the session rooms.
Access to the presentation archives is limited to AVW-TELAV staff and individual speakers. After your files are loaded on the IPS server, you have full access to them until one hour before presentation time. Files are deleted from the presentation server at the end of the week.
