Frequently Asked Questions

Q – What audiovisual aids will be available at the conference?
A – Each room will be equipped with a digital projector and screen. Conferees are expected to either bring their own laptop or make arrangements to use a fellow panelist’s laptop. We have created an “A/V Request Form” that we hope conferees will fill out to help us arrange tech support and have laptop speakers available when needed. This form can be found on the website’s main menu.

Q – Will all necessary chords and hookups be available for the projectors?
A – All projectors use a VGA input, so all Mac users or those with non-vga machines will need to bring an adapter that fits their needs.

Q – Where can I park my car and how much will it cost?
A – The hotel provides complimentary self-parking for any overnight hotel guests. Any daily guests, driving in for the meeting, have the option to park in the hotel garage as long as spaces are available. The Hilton offers a discounted self-parking rate of $5 to any daily guests (the normal rate is $10/day). At the registration table, we will have stickers that read “$5 self-parking, paid by guest”. This means they will pay the $5 discounted rate when they leave the garage. The sticker should be placed on the back of the ticket they receive when they enter the garage. If the Hilton garage is full, we recommend the following lots close by (however, we cannot validate parking for those garages/lots): 5/3 Bank Building, Victorian Square, Rupp Arena parking lot off Manchester Street.

Q – How much time will I have for my presentation?
A – Concurrent sessions will run 90 minutes each, with an hour devoted to panelist presentations and 30 minutes for discussion.  On a three-person panel, you should prepare no more than 20 minutes of material. For four-person panels, presentations should last no longer than 16 minutes.
