A Preview/Testing Area (also called “Speaker Ready Area”) is available for speakers in the Conference Room 2 (Proceedings Office).

Speakers must upload their presentation to the Linac18 SPMS server following the instruction below. Use of individual laptops cannot be accommodated. The deadline for presentation upload is at 15:00 on the day before your talk. Accepted formats are Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe PDF.

Any special requirements concerning visual aids should be addressed to the local organizers at linac18@ihep.ac.cn well in advance of the conference.

Before the Conference starts
Please upload your electronic presentation to the LINAC18 SPMS server as early as possible but at the latest by 15:00 on the day before the presentation. Name the file with the program code and «_talk» (for example MO104_talk.ppt) and then upload in the same way as for papers through your LINAC 18 profile. You can find the program code assigned to your presentation when logging into the LINAC18 SPMS server.

Note that the computers used for the presentations will be PCs running Windows. There will be no possibility for authors to use their own computers and if this will cause you problems, please contact linac18@ihep.ac.cn as soon as possible.

Before your session, please check that everything has been loaded correctly. Slides that have been successfully captured will be published via the conference website on the day of the presentation. Please be advised that by giving your talk you automatically agree to its online publication via on the JACoW website.
