please provide a short bio summary (e.g., see that of Brian Arthur or other speakrs), title and abstract to Doug, and also any useful url links to background papers or web sites for the talk. If you want any special graphics, animated gifs, whatever, to go on your web page, just send to Doug as well. Updates are easily made.
Our video transmissions lose resolution compared to a powerpoint talk using a video projector. Use at least 24 point font for any text that should be readable by the viewer, labels in tables and figures and axes of graphs can be 20 point font. Anything below 20 point font will barely be legible.
You can also use pdf which has somewhat better resolution, or convert your ppt to pdf if it does not involve animation.
Please send a draft of the ppt or pdf to Doug in advance of your talk date so he can look through it and give advice or convert it to pdf if you would like. The video operator can zoom in a bit on pdf, but not on ppt. Let us know in advance if you will be bringing your own laptop or just your ppt/pdf on a flash drive.
Does your presentation have any special requirements?
Please send a short bio summary (e.g., see that of Brian Arthur or other speakers), title and abstract to Doug at least a week before your talk and any useful url links to background papers or web sites for the talk. If you want any special graphics, animated gifs, whatever, to be included on the web page for your talk, just send them to Doug as well. Updates are easily made.
Typically we post the ppt or the pdf on our web site before the talk, and keep it there in case better resolution is needed.
(You will have an audience at the campus where you chose to present the talk, and the audiences at other campuses have live interaction through activation of their individual micropohones. If there is too much chatter because someone has left a local microphone one, you can ask them to shut off the microphone, or usually one of us will do that.)
