ISA NE 2013: Presentation Info

If you plan to use PowerPoint or Keynote, you will need to provide your own laptop. You are also advised to bring your presentation on a USB drive as well so that panels with multiple presentations can simply use one panelists' laptop, and also so that we can more easily troubleshoot any problems that arise. We are excited to be able to provide presentation capabilities for everyone who wishes to use it, and also for the free wireless network access in all of the conference rooms. See you in Providence!
