How to Use
the Conference Presentation Server
- Presentations will
be accepted on the server if they are submitted at least 1 full business
day prior to the conference start time. After that time, you will need
to bring your presentation materials on removable media such as a USB
- An A/V representative
will be available in your assigned session room an hour before start
time to test presentations. Using the Conference Presentation Server
enables event support staff to load and test presentations on the equipment
that will be used during the conference. Furthermore, having all
presentations preloaded on the conference laptop allows for a more seamless
transition between multiple presentations during a session.
- Please enter your
last name, first name, and email address in the fields provided.
- Select your conference
from the list provided. If you do not see your conference, check with
your conference facilitator to verify that they are working with UCSB
- Conference Services
can be reached at (805) 893-3072.
- Please choose the
format of your presentation.
- To select the document
you wish to upload, click the Browse button. This will open up a file
window, where you can navigate to and select your file. Once you have
chosen the file click OK.
- When you are finished
click on the Submit Paper button.
- Please use a 2 to
3 word, easily identifiable file name for your presentation. The server
utility will include additional identifying information based on your
input on the form.
- While most presentations
will be contained within one file (PowerPoint, PDF, or Keynote document)
we understand that presentations with embedded media such as video or
audio may require more than one file. If this is the case, we recommend
putting all of the necessary files into a single folder, then compressing
the folder into the ZIP format. The ZIP file should use the same naming
conventions described above for easy identification by the A/V staff.
- WARNING: TIFF
files in a MAC PowerPoint presentation will not appear when transferred
to a PC. Images must be converted to jpeg within the MAC PowerPoint
presentation in order for them to be visible when transferred to a PC.
NOTE: We highly recommend that
you bring a copy of your presentation
and all associated files on portable media or your own laptop, as a
back up, even if you upload your presentation to the Conference Presentation
Server. Also, please be sure to bring the appropriate VGA adapter
if you are using a Mac laptop.
The upload utility currently
has a 200 MB limit. If your presentation is larger, please contact Jim
Gallagher (firstname.lastname@example.org) Dan Lloyd (email@example.com) or Nobu Matsuo (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance.
A note on security: although
you are uploading to a web server, downloading privileges are password
protected and available only to Instructional Development.s IT Staff.
Thank you for your participation.
