Your Role as a Speaker

As a speaker at ARM TechCon, it is your responsibility to submit an electronic version of your presentation slides that will be posted to the Proceedings website for registered attendees to download prior to the conference.

Please do not send hardcopies of these materials. These should be submitted via email to Keri.Schnakenburg@ubm.com

Audio Visual

Each of the conference session rooms will include the following:

  • 1 wired lavaliere microphone
  • 1 podium microphone
  • 1 projector with connection
  • Screen

Note: Speakers will be responsible for providing their own laptop.

Evaluations

Electronic evaluations will be sent to all conference attendees for each session. Post-show our Conference Team will tabulate the results and provide each instructor with individualized feedback on their performance. Please be sure to make an announcement about filling out evaluations during your conference session.

Guidelines for Presentation Slides and Technical White Papers

Format: PDF and PPT
Submit your presentation slides in both PDF and native file formats, and if you’re submitting a technical white papers in PDF format. We will not distribute or post the PowerPoint (or other native files).

Presentation Slide Template
Please use the ARM TechCon 2014 PowerPoint template below:

File Naming:
Please use the following format for labeling your presentation slides and, if applicable, your technical white paper (Please only use the first 3 words of your session title while naming the files):
“Session Title_Slides_lastname.ppt” and “Session Title_Paper_lastname.pdf”

Fonts
Please use standard fonts in your presentations (ie: Calibri, Arial, Times New Roman and Courier). Doing so will minimize the chances of conference attendees having difficulty viewing your notes.

Content
Ideal material includes general session overviews, copies of slides and/or files, notes, diagrams, and problem solving exercises. The content of your notes will depend on the format of your actual presentation.

Insert the graphics in your document. Do not "link" the graphics to your document. All graphics, pictures, charts, figures, etc., should be inserted (embedded) into your electronic file.

Directions to submit Presentation Slides and Technical White Papers
