If you are speaking or hosting a workshop at FOSS4G 2013 in Nottingham, here’s what you need to know:
Admission to the conference
To keep the cost of attending FOSS4G as low as possible for ALL delegates, conference and workshop passes are not free to presenters. All the surplus from FOSS4G goes to the OSGeo Foundation to fund its good work.
Workshops are being held in University of Nottingham computer labs all of which have a projector for the use of the presenter with a standard VGA connection and desktop computers for the use of delegates. In most instances there will be a PC per delegate, if delegates are required to share it is expected that no more than two delegates per PC should be required. All power outlets are UK style as are the keyboards.
Installation of software on the lab PCs is generally not possible and it is expected that workshops will use OSGeo-Live DVD / USB or equivalent. Should you wish to use an alternative Live DVD or USB then the Workshop Team will be happy to test the package prior the the workshops if it is provided by Friday 6th September.
Details of the machine spec, browser and capacity of each lab are shown on the location pages:
- Sir Clive Granger Building: B29 A
- Sir Clive Granger Building: B29 B
- Sir Clive Granger Building: B26 E
- Trent B16
- Hallward Library: LG101
Each delegate will be given a copy of OSGeo-Live DVD 7.0 when they register and we aim on having a stack of spare copies in each lab. Further information about OSGeo-Live and downloads available at live.osgeo.org.
Before your session
We strongly encourage presenters to visit the room in which their session or workshop is held prior to their session time to ensure that they are familiar with the set up. Details of when the rooms will be available before the conference.
On the day
Please ensure that you arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of your session (not your presentation) and introduce yourself to the session chair and the other presenters. This will also be your opportunity to retest your laptop or handover your memory stick.
