Speaker Presentations Office
The Speaker Presentations Office is located in Room E10D on level 1 of the Convention Center. All speakers should visit this room the day before their presentation to check the fidelity of their presentation on laptops identical to those being used in the auditoria, to ensure beforehand that their presentations will work correctly.

Presentation Preparation Details
Speakers should upload their presentation following the Upload Guidelines for Contributions. NOTE: Presentations must be uploaded at least half a day before their scheduled time in order to allow verification and transfer to the presentation computer network.
Please note that we also require a PDF file of the presentation for inclusion in the conference proceedings. Please notify the IPAC'15 Editors if you do not want your slides published as part of the proceedings. Authors are responsible for upload of modified files if they only want a subset of their slides published.
The following precautions should be adhered to, to ensure smooth running of electronic presentations:
Please be sure to embed fonts in both the PDF and the original PowerPoint file. Only TrueType and OpenType fonts can be embedded.

- Under PowerPoint Options, choose Save.
- Check the box for Embed fonts in the file

Upload of Presentations
The files of presentations should be uploaded to our fileserver as early as possible, but at the latest, half a day before the presentation. Files should be named with the program code and "_talk" (for example MOXGB2_talk.ppt, MOXGB2_talk.pdf, etc.) and then uploaded in the same way as for papers through JACoW SPMS IPAC'15 Author Accounts. The program codes assigned to presentations are visible when logging into accounts, or via the "search" functionality.
Authors who are unable to upload to the server should copy the files to a CD or USB hard drive and bring it to the Speaker Presentations Office or Author Reception at least one day before the presentation.
At the Conference
Once the presentations have been uploaded to the server, they can be checked on the Convention Center’s computers in the Speaker Presentations Office.
Slides that have been successfully captured will be published in the web version of the proceedings without further action on the part of the speaker. As noted above, please notify the IPAC'15 Editors if you do not want your slides published as part of the proceedings.
