Presenter Guide for AIRCast - OnAiR

Please ensure the following for live presentations:

Please make sure you log into the platform using CHROME – firefox, edge, explorer etc DO NOT work so please do not use them.  If you do not have Chrome installed please install it prior to the scheduled rehearsal.

Please log in 30mins before your presentation starts so we can test your system ahead of time.

If possible please use a wired internet cable not wireless.

As a backup, please send through any PowerPoint slides ahead of the presentation.

If you have the ability to use two screens this will mean you can have multiple functions available to view easily.  For example, if sharing slides live, you will be able to view the text Q&A and communicate via chat with the other presenters if required.  This is not essential if not possible.

POST-CONVENTION INFORMATION

All live and pre-recorded presentations will be available to delegates after the event unless you advise otherwise. Any additional files authors choose to share will also be available to view during and after their presentation.

Access to the virtual platform is restricted to convention participants only and cannot be found by search engines.

During the registration process, delegates must acknowledge and agree to the virtual convention Terms & Conditions, which include strict rules around unauthorised photography and recording of convention material. While these measures can be taken, we cannot enforce this rule in an online environment. The assumption should be made that participants may indeed take unauthorised photographs, screenshots, audio, or video recordings, therefore you may wish to adjust the content of your presentation accordingly.
