Audio-Visual Equipment
Excerpt from
Congress Info for presenters page

• Meeting rooms at the University of Regina are outfitted with PC computers loaded with Windows and Microsoft Office 2013 software. If you plan to use this equipment for presentations, please ensure that your files are compatible with these programs. We strongly encourage you to use these computers as they are pre-set with connections to the room’s internal AV system.
• If you bring your own laptop, especially if it is a Mac, you should bring your own adaptor or coordinate with your association to have one ordered from the university in advance. Cables provided with in-room equipment are either VGA or HDMI and range from 4-6 feet in length.
• Ensure you always have a back-up of your presentation files. We recommend you save your files on a USB key, as well as email them to yourself or make use of a cloud storage site for online retrieval. It is especially helpful to save a copy of any video file(s) on a USB key to ensure that it can be played without reliance on the internet, in case of a poor connection.

Local arrangements
Professor Jim Farney (Department of Political Science – University of Regina) has taken care of the local arrangements. He and the student assistants will be available to help in case of need.
