The 33rd Annual New Mexico Symposium
  3 November 2017 - National Radio Astronomy Observatory

  Registration closed. Please contact Dale Frail if you have any questions.
Instructions for Speakers:
  • The talks will be approximately 12 minutes with an additional 3 minutes for questions.
  • We will have two laptops available for oral presentations: one Windows and one MacOSX. We will be able to handle the following formats: Power Point (Windows or Mac), PDF (Windows or Mac), and Open Office (Mac)
  • The latest you can put your talk on the laptops is the break before your session.
  • You may wish to ftp your talk to us ahead of time. This is recommended if you have movies or other complications that might not work on a foreign machine or if your talk is in the first session.
  • Please upload your talk by 1pm, Thursday, 2 November if you want us to test it. After you have uploaded the talk please send Dale Frail an e-mail. This will give us time to get back to you if there are any problems. FTPing instructions can be found below.
  • If you are speaking in the first session, please either upload (ftp) your talk or arrive at 8:30am to load the talk yourself.
  • If not ftping your talk, the best bet is to bring it on a memory stick.
