Presenters Registration

All presenters will be required to register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee. Presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.

A discounted registration fee of $960.00 is available to the presenting author(s) of the paper.   Co-authors who are not presenting are required to register separately with either the early bird or standard registration fee.

Presenter registrations are due by 21 December 2016.

Audiovisual Equipment

Each session room will be equipped for the presentation of PowerPoint slides and include a data projector, computer with external speakers, lectern and microphone.

Presentation Files

Presenters will take their PowerPoint slides to the meeting on a memory stick, where an audiovisual technician will load your presentation.

Video and audio clips should be embedded in your PowerPoint slides rather than linking to external files.

All slides will be run from a central presentation computer. However, if you have a complex presentation, which includes multiple media files, we suggest you bring your own laptop as a backup in case of difficulties loading your presentation.
