Information for Speakers for Bristol
In terms of presenting format and setup, since we’re running a “distributed” conference, all talks will be live streamed to youtube via the Jitsi steaming management app. This means we will need to have a “fixed” presentation laptop that is hooked up to the AV system, and so you will be expected to present from this. The presentation laptop will have a good wifi connection.
As a back up option, we expect all presenters to provide a standalone PDF of their presentation which will be queued on the presentation laptop before the day. However, if you prefer to use an online format, e.g. google slides (or similar), or even a PDF that’s on a URL, that is fine too, but please supply the URL to the presentation in advance too.
Note, the presentation laptop will not have a copy of Microsoft Powerpoint. So if you’re using Powerpoint to construct your deck, please export to PDF and check it any for any funky formatting quirks, since we’ll use your PDF on the day.
If you have indicated you’d like to do a live demo on your submission, you’ll be contacted directly about this.
Please supply a copy of your PDF, and if using, a URL to your slide deck, by no later that 17:00 on Tuesday 5th September 2023 to allow us to queue up your material beforehand. Please see your confirmation email for the contact email address for this.
