FAQ

If I want to present on a topic, how will that work?

Please complete the Speaker Call for Presentations (https://goo.gl/forms/8xPUZGzNXXueUJTv2) form. Indicate your interest in speaking when you register and we will be in touch. Topics will be collected and either single person or panels lasting 30-45 minutes will be slotted into the schedule. For anyone submitting a proposal, please read How to Make Presentations Accessible to All (http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/accessible.php).

If I present, am I expected to have a slide deck?

If you end up presenting, you are welcomed to use a slide deck. However, given the informal nature of the event, it is not a must. Also, if you choose to provide handouts, you are responsible for making sure to bring accessible formats (e.g., Word, tagged PDF). For anyone thinking of presenting, please read How to Make Presentations Accessible to All (http://www.w3.org/WAI/training/accessible.php).

If I present on a topic, what AV will be available?

All rooms will have data projectors. You are responsible for bringing your own laptop, if you choose to use a presentation deck. You’ll also be asked to provide an electronic copy to be linked to the event site post-event.

What’s happening for lunch?

Lunch will be provided free of charge to registered attendees. Be sure to indicate any dietary requirements when you register.

How do I indicate disability-related accommodation requests?
