Speaker Information

Information for Symposium Speakers

We are planning to use a MAC laptop as the presentation computer.   The projector is an HD (1920x1080 16:9 aspect ratio) capable one.

Please either upload your presentations into Indico or email them to Shawn ( the night before your presentation time.  This will give us time to verify the presentation will display properly and get it uploaded onto Indico if needed.  In the break before each session starts we will be uploading the presentations onto the presentation laptop in the room. 

All presentations (besides the initial welcome session) are scheduled for 30 minute time-slots.  You should target your presentations to be no more than 25 minutes long to leave time for questions.

We intend to use Indico as a long-term record of the Symposium and would like to request that everyone either upload their talk to Indico (login using your Indico lightweight account and go to and click on the pencil icon) or email it to this speakers list by the night before your presentation.   If updates are needed we should be able to accommodate changes if they are made by the break before your talk's session. 

Some additional useful information on  getting a lightweight account for use in Indico

CERN lightweight accounts:

If you create a new lightweight account, please let Shawn know so he can ensure it is correctly associated with your presentation slot.

Contact Symposium support if you have questions or need assistance.
