FDS conference etiquette
Owing to the density and tight schedule of our panels
program, we strongly recommend that single presentations do not go
overtime. The average time limit for each presenter is 15 minutes. The
presentation duration can be extended only in extraordinary
circumstances by sending specific request to your panel moderator and
providing rationale for the time extension.
Please consider that under no circumstances can
presentations exceed 20 minutes and moderators will have to cut off
your talk at that point. As a consequence, we ask you to please make
sure that your presentation conforms to the duration defined by your
Q&A Sessions are scheduled at the end of each panel
after the set of individual presentations.
We assume presenters will work from their own laptops
but, in case you are unable to bring your own, please consider that the
only computer available will be a MacBook (available for public use,
OSX 10.4, 2GHz Intel Processor, 1GB RAM).
Please note that media systems in the Reitz 282 will
VGA from a standard 9 pin 'female' computer socket.
(Mac users and others - don't forget
your adaptors - we cannot guarantee the correct adapter will be
Audio via standard stereo mini jack.
Please ensure that your media work ahead of time so as
not to disrupt the panel schedule in ways that might inconvenience all
