IT provision for speakers

All rooms at the conference will be equipped with a PC and digital projection system. Please note that the following software will be available on those machines:

  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Office 2010
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • Latest Java
  • Internet Explorer

Presenters/Speakers who use their own laptop:

Should presenters choose to use their own laptop, it is their responsibility to make sure that any video or live internet links work correctly on site. Speakers wishing to use their own laptops (PC or Mac) for their presentations need to make sure that they have the correct adapters to connect to our AV system that uses VGA inputs.

Apple MAC Users:

Mac laptops are not available for loan within the University. Powerpoint presentations created on a Mac will work on our PC systems without conversion, however, we recommend that the Event Organiser & Speaker check in advance that presentations will work correctly on the PC software that we provide.


All presenters/speakers should bring a copy of their presentation on a USB drive.
