How workshops are organized
All conference workshops are 90 minutes’ duration and take place at the Halifax Convention Centre.
Rooms are set in rounds of 8, with a maximum of 40-60 participants. There is no advance sign-up procedure and participants will be admitted as space permits. We ask you to monitor the door to ensure that the room does not become overcrowded. Volunteers will be assigned to assist you if possible.
Workshops are evaluated individually and feedback given to organizers.
What is provided
A Windows-compatible computer and data projector is provided. All the conference workshop room computers are connected to the presentation management software in the Speaker Ready Room located in both hotels and we would greatly appreciate it if you could use the computer provided. However if it is essential that you use your own computer please discuss this with the technician in the Speaker Ready Room to ensure compatibility with the data projector.
All rooms are connected to Wifi but no hard-wired connections are available.
If you do not wish to bring handouts with you, you may make a small number of copies at the Conference’s designated business centre.
Ways to upload your Powerpoint
You (or the submitter of your presentation if it was not you personally) will receive an email from the Presentation Management Company approximately 3 weeks before the Conference. You will be given the option of uploading your presentation online in advance of the Conference if you wish to do so.
If you choose not to upload in advance, you may wait until you arrive at the hotels to upload your presentation. It is preferable to go to the Speaker Ready Room the day before your scheduled presentation in order to test your file. If this is not possible, please make sure you go to the Speaker Ready Room at least 3 hours in advance of your presentation time in order to test out your presentation. It will then be saved and uploaded for you on the relevant computer.
