Early-May 2009: DISCOUNTED REGISTRATION!!! If you are a Speaker, Panelist, or Chair, you will receive your DISCOUNTED Conference Registration Email. Please don't register for DAC online until you receive this information.
June 19, 2009: Speakers- Submit your PowerPoint slides to the DAC website for review by your Session Chair. The Session Chairís name and email address will be sent to you.
July 6, 2009: Speakers- If you have submitted your slides to your session chair on time, you should receive feedback on your slides from your Session Chair. Please notify the DAC office if you have not. It is important to follow the suggestions given by your Session Chair.
July 16, 2009: Speakers- FTP a final version of your presentation to ftp://ftp.dac.com, username: slides; password: 61234dac. This will be on the DAC server for back-up purposes only. This will be used for projection if no newer version is brought by you to the Conference. Even if you know that you will be making changes in the AV practice rooms upon arrival, you must still send in the version that you consider final by the July 16 deadline so that we will have something to use at DAC in the event of an emergency.
July 26, 2009: Speakers - Conference Begins. Bring the final version of your slides with you either on CD, or thumb drive. At the Conference, we will load the presentations onto the appropriate computer for projection.
The computers at the conference are NOT NETWORKED together. This is intentional to ensure that no unchecked versions get loaded onto the conference computers. The AV consultants will manually load your presentations on the computers in the AV/practice rooms upon their arrival. So any changes you have sent to them after July 16 may not be present yet on the computers there. If this is the case it is important to CLEAR this personally with them and give them the correct version to load on the computer of the cubicle you will be working in.
Attend the Speakers Breakfast at the Moscone Center the morning of your presentation. Breakfast is served in room 134 on:
