Bring a copy of your presentation on floppy disk,
and a CD copy of all the software you need to make your presentation. This will
allow you to install everything onto someone else's laptop. Email the presentation
materials to Warpstock for inclusion in a private area of the web site, as an additional
Make printouts of your presentation, and then make
photocopies of that printout for the attendees. Not only will the photocopies act
as a backup in case the projector doesn't work, but the attendees will appreciate
them as a reference during and after the session.
Warpstock has four conference rooms setup with
theatre style seating, and a PA system available in each room. Each room will have
a riser with a table and podium up front. Data projectors with screens will have
a VGA extension cord that will allow the presenter to plug in his computer and control
the equipment from the front of the room.

Presentation Title & Summary: September 21, 2001.

Your presentation materials (slides, software demo's,
etc.) might be used to compile a Warpstock 2001 CD-ROM with all the presentations
on it and be given out to Warpstock attendees. Let us know if we can not use some
or all of your presentation materials.
Clarification on submitting papers
We don't need an extensive document, just a brief description of
what you want to present.
As a guideline, a one hour presentation generally
contains 1500 to 2000 words. If you wish to submit an accompanying paper for our
proceedings document it can be up to about 5000 words. But you don't need to submit
1500 to 5000 words in order to be considered for a presentation slot.
A one hour presentation generally means about 50
minutes of content and 10 minutes of preliminaries and closing. If you have a longer
presentation in mind, say 1.5 hours, we would want to structure it as 10 minutes
of preliminaries, 45 minutes of content, 15 minute break, another 45 minutes of
content, and 5 minutes of closing. So it would neatly fit into two one hour slots.
Don't be shy. Conferences like Warpstock consistently
report that the best received and most valued presentations are from people who
know what they're talking about. If you have something to say, you'll do fine.
This is your conference. Your participation is what will make
it a success. Thank you for your contributions.
Speakers are encouraged to use the official Warpstock templates
for their presentations. Thank you for your cooperation.
