** If you forget your HDMI adapter, the A/V team ''might'' have one you can use - but there are no guarantees!

** Please contact the [mailto:speakers@lcabythebay.org.au speaker liaison] if you '''must''' use VGA output. We do have a limited number of VGA to HDMI converters, but they frequently cause issues.

Each presentation slot is 50 minutes, except tutorials which have a double slot of one hour and 40 minutes. It is expected that your talk will go for approximately 40 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions, unless you prefer to take questions during your presentation.
