Time Allotment: Each presenter will have 15 minutes for speaking and 5 minutes for discussion. If you have any videos or animation it is considered part of your presentation time, so please plan accordingly. Speakers who have requested additional time will be notified if an adjustment is made for their time allotment.

Presentation Changes: If you have any changes, please go to the Speaker Desk no later than the morning of your talk to give them to SIGN Staff.

Video Clips: Please provide all video files so we can be sure they link properly.

Microphone: Go to the Speaker Desk during the talk preceding yours so that you can be fitted with your microphone.

Attention Mac Users: If you create your presentation on a Mac, please be sure it is PC compatible. We cannot guarantee that the presentation will work properly. If you wish to run your presentation off of your personal Mac laptop, please bring a video adapter for PC. (You are still required to give your presentation to SIGN Staff for review by August 16.)

Please do not include any political or religious references in the presentation. These will be removed from your slides.
