Before arriving at the workshop:

  • Make a poster (optional) or develop and gather materials for the Share Fair (everyone participates!) and a Group Session (if you've been asked to present). If you will present a poster or other materials that are electronic, when it's ready, upload your materials. Note: We cannot print your poster or handouts for you; you will need to print them out and bring them to the workshop yourself. However, we ask you to upload it so that we can make it available as a downloadable file from the workshop website. If you will be presenting, please be sure you have put together your lab or in-class demonstration/activity for your assigned session and that you have all necessary materials.
  • Upload your presentation file if you are giving an oral presentation at the workshop. This will give you an on-site backup copy and will allow us to post your presentation on the website. You should still plan to bring a copy of your file with you. You will have the option of giving your presentation from your own computer, or you may use one of the on-site computers (both PCs and Macs will be available).
  • Download the Medical Emergency Information Form, complete it, and bring it with you to the workshop in a sealed envelope. We will open the envelope and read the form only in the case of a medical emergency during the workshop and will shred it once the workshop is over.
