Speaker Preparation Room
All presenters should check in at the Speaker Preparation Room soon after they pick up their credentials at SIGGRAPH 2008 Speaker Registration. This is the 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. We'll also have your speaker ribbon there.
Presentation Technology Available at SIGGRAPH 2008
Each session room at SIGGRAPH 2008 has a Macintosh and a PC equipped with fast processors, loads of RAM, network connectivity, and removable media options. These computers are interfaced to ultra-bright, high-resolution video/data projectors. If your presentation looks good on your monitor, it will look good on the SIGGRAPH 2008 projection screen.
SIGGRAPH 2008 Presentation Management System
Using the resources available in the Speaker Preparation Room, contributors can load, edit, tweak, and test their electronic presentations. The Speaker Preparation Room 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 Speaker Preparation Room staff and individual speakers. After your files are loaded on the 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.
Speaker practice rooms will be available as a service of the Speaker Preparation Room.
