The SIGGRAPH 2008 Speaker Preparation staff is on hand to make sure that we know what you need and that we have it in place when you arrive. All of our services are available to SIGGRAPH 2008 presenters free of charge.
In the Speaker Preparation Room, you can test your presentation. You can make sure that your software versions are compatible with the versions in the session rooms. You can find out if you have all the necessary fonts, CODECS, or linked images to make your presentation work the way you expect it to. And you can load your presentation on our server to be delivered to your session room via the secure SIGGRAPH 2008 network.
You might want to use your own laptop, and quite possibly you need to. We would prefer that you use our session room computers in order to maintain the integrity of the equipment setup. Connecting other computers tends to disrupt the presentation flow. If you have special software or hardware requirements, we can provide a connection to get you up and running.
