We have created a simple form which assists us in keeping all uploads accessible from one file.
Presentations should be prepared in MS PowerPoint and set up in 16:9 format (widescreen). To adopt this format, select File>Page Setup... and select 'Slides sized for: On-screen shown (16:9). Use of the 4:3 format will have an effect on the presentation and will result in graphics and text becoming distorted.
Invited Plenary Speakers are guests of the SIA and are entitled to free registration for the entire conference and free attendance at the Reception and Dinner.
Presenters of accepted papers on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th November 2018 are entitled to free registration for the day of their presentation.
To assist with conference management and catering, we require that all Guest speakers and Presenters of papers (whether invited or not) register for the conference. Once Presentations have been accepted , you will be advised of a promotional code which, when entered, will allow you to register for the 2 Day Conference only ticket at a discounted rate that incorporates your existing discount status. Presenters wishing to register for additional (chargeable) events (eg Reception, Dinner) should do so on the same ticket.
