Tips for Giving an LCD Projector Presentation
The responsibility for a smooth, technically trouble-free presentation ultimately rests with you, the presenter.
Session Time Table is Strictly Adhered To
The abstract presentation schedule is rigidly maintained. Connect your laptop to the LCD projector before your session so you do not waste time setting up.
APS is not responsible for the security of personal laptop computers and equipment.
- Bring your own laptop computer, power cord, and any proprietary cords required for your computer — particularly if you have a brand new computer. MAC users, please bring your own VGA Adapter.
- APS does not provide presentation software. Necessary software needs to be installed on your laptop.
- Arrive at your session room 10 minutes early to connect your laptop to the LCD projector. Leave your computer turned on and ready to go.
- Use the lapel microphone properly: place the microphone 6" below your chin. (Often, reported microphone "problems" are merely a matter of having the lapel microphone placed too close or too far from the speaker's mouth.)
- Stop speaking when the session Chair asks you to and remove your computer and equipment.
- When you leave the session, take your laptop, accessories, and papers with you.
