SUMMARIES:
Speakers are requested to provide a summary of their paper of not more than 300 words, illustrated where relevant. The summary will be edited and recorded in the Society's archive and may be presented in its Proceedings publication. The summary should be dispatched, preferably by email, to the Secretary, no less than 7 days before the Meeting.

AUDIOVISUAL FACILITIES:
The Society now employs the services of a professional A-V team.

The technician will be available from 0900 at the commencement of each meeting to receive final versions of PowerPoint presentations which must be mounted on a USB Memory Stick ( Flash Drive) or a CD disk.

We can NOT accept photographic 35mm slides or overhead transparencies.

Non compliant presentations (e.g.slides etc.) will need to be converted to digital Powerpoint format before the meeting. Please contact Dr Peter Jones at least 2 weeks before the meeting to have your images transferred to digital format (peterlloydjones@mac.com mob : 07411108858).

A combined laser pointer/slide changer will be provided. Speakers MUST familiarise themselves with this equipment before the start of the Meeting.

POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS:

In view of the discrepancies introduced by Microsoft into individual versions of the 'PowerPoint' software, speakers are encouraged to send their presentations on 'Sticks', CD or DVD disc, to the secretary to arrive not less than 7 days before the meeting. Every effort will be made to ensure that the presentation will be faultless. All material will be returned at the meeting.

BRINGING A LAPTOP:
Those speakers wishing to use their own laptop computers may do so. Please ensure that the machine is fully set up to communicate with a data projector via its digital output socket. If you don't know what this means, please contact the Secretary who can consult our A/V specialist.

Macintosh Lap-tops must be provided with a suitable adaptor. Compatibility will need to be confirmed at least one hour before the START of the Meeting.

Please do not rely on being able to establish a wi-fi connection at the meeting venue. Be aware that the pitfalls are many and that failure to comply with the various procedures and Standards will be humiliating.
