Presenter Checklist

We hope you have a great presentation experience. Here is a checklist that will help you avoid that last minute panic!

Registration & Payment

The presenter registration deadline was March 17, 2017. The payment deadline for presenters was April 10, 2017. (If you are a presenter and have not paid, please contact us to make arrangements for late payment.)

Presentation Room Equipment

Presenters are STRONGLY ADVISED to bring their own computer connection equipment (adaptors such as Mac "dongles", etc) if they plan to use their own laptops. AIU and PanSIG will NOT be able to provide this kind of equipment to people who forget to bring it.

Presenters may use USBs directly in the hard drives of the PC computers available in each room. Please ensure that your PowerPoint backup is compatible with both ppt and pptx formats. Each room has its own PC, screen and projector, and sound system. Rooms are all internet connected with WiFi.

Presenters are advised to check they know how to use the equipment before their presentation. Some assistance will be provided in the form of student volunteers, and some AIU faculty who are volunteering to help over the weekend, as AIU IT staff are not available on weekends.

Poster Presentations

Poster presenters should bring magnets and/or pins in order to display their posters. Most posters will be attached to magnetic whiteboards, and some pin-boards will be available. Poster presenters are asked NOT to use tape.

Please see our "Interative Poster Presentations" page for information and advice about poster presentations.

2017 PanSIG Journal: Deadline was Monday, July 31st, 2017

All presenters at PanSIG 2017 were invited to submit a paper based on their presentation for publication in the 2017 PanSIG Journal. In the same way that the presentations were vetted prior to the conference, the conference papers will also be subjected to peer review. Publication in the 2017 PanSIG Journal qualifies as a refereed publication. We would therefore like to encourage all presenters to submit a paper. The deadline for submissions was Monday, July 31st, 2017. The target publishing date of the 2017 PanSIG Journal is May 2018. Please see the PanSIG Journal site for details.
