Please note that you must bring your presentation files to the session on the day of your presentation. ION computers will accept PowerPoint or PDF files from a USB drive or CD-ROM. Presentation files uploaded to AMP are only for publication in the proceedings; these files will not automatically be copied to the session room computer.
Each presentation will be allotted no more than 20 minutes. Please do not run over the allotted time. Files exceeding 20 minutes will be rejected.
The most negative criticisms prior ION authors have received is in regards to the quality of the author's visual aids. Improperly prepared audio-visual materials can spoil an otherwise excellent presentation. Conference participants regard the quality of your visuals as an indication of your level of preparation and professionalism. Remember that the quality of your visual aids is a reflection on you and the company/agency you represent.
If your presentation incorporates unique fonts or unusual symbols, be sure to embed the fonts in your PowerPoint or Acrobat file. Failure to do so may cause the fonts to display incorrectly.
To embed fonts in PowerPoint: File > Options > Save > Select the checkbox "Embed fonts in the file" under the heading "Preserve fidelity when sharing this presentation".
If your presentation incorporates equations, you may wish to import the equations to PowerPoint as captured image files. This allows the equations to display correctly on most computers without any special fonts or equation editing software installed.
