Accepting your invitation to present We will begin informing presenters of their presentation slot by email from Tuesday 16th November, if you have not heard byTuesday 30th November, please contact the BSA Office immediately bsaconference@britsoc.org.uk. All presenters must register online before 24th January 2011, and inform us of any special needs, queries or requests you may have. If you wish to discuss the theme and purpose of your presentation, please do not hesitate to contact the conference team. You must then confirm your abstract text for theconference programme and provide the BSA with a copy of your full paper (optional). Audio Visual and Technical Equipment You should have already provided the BSA with details of your audio visual and technical requirements on your abstract submission form. If you have not done so, you need to do this before 1st February 2011o ensure that this equipment is available for your use. At London School ofEconomics each session room will have facilities to project images and sound from a computer onto a projection screen. You will not be required to bring your own laptop although it is possible to connect a laptop to the projector (via a standard monitor cable). Note that laptops will not have Internet access. If you have any difficulties using the equipment on the day you should inform a member of theconference audio visual team who will be able to assist you. Bring your presentation to the conference on a CD or USB stick. Ideally, you should arrive early so you can upload your presentation onto the PC’s hard drive or network file space (it is necessary to run a small utility programme to recognise a USB stick and assign a drive letter, so it’s a good to avoid doing this mid-session). Pleasenote that the computers will have a Microsoft Windows operating system and will not support Mac-produced presentations unless they are saved in an appropriate format. Should you wish to bring your own Mac hardware we will try to help in any way possible but be aware that we may not have Apple Mac expertise. Display materials and handouts You may decide to bring books, reports, pamphlets, handouts,and other materials that may be of interest to the audience. Please be aware that this may disrupt your presentation. Session attendance is generally around 30-45 delegates while conference attendance can reach 500. Please note that the conference will not provide additional copying of materials, so plan accordingly. Speakers may provide materials to be included in delegate bags by contacting theBSA (bsaconference@britsoc.org.uk) before 25th February 2011.
