Presenter Information and Upload Page

This site is ONLY for recorded sessions.

GCPS and Ethylene presenters should not use this portal. You should coordinate with your session chair to submit your presentation.

Fuels & Petrochemicals presenters may upload using this portal.

All other conferences/symposia are not being recorded and not handled by this portal.

All presentations in recorded sessions are handled by our on-site presentation management system, LaunchPad. Personal laptops may not be used for presentations. The following guide will give you an overview of how to upload your files to our system, and what to expect when you get to the meeting.

1. Getting your files together

Presentation Files

Don’t worry, we’re not going to make you convert your files. In fact, our system handles just about any kind of presentation file, whether you made it on a Mac, PC or Linux computer. There are no limits on file size.


Media Files

LaunchPad supports any media file type, and once again there are no size limits. An important note: please bring all media files with you when you upload your talk, even if you’ve embedded them in your talk. While we can help with many aspects of your talk on-site, we can’t fix a missing media file.


Web Links and Online Presentation Formats

If your presentation is web based (e.g. Google Presentations), instead of using the upload portal below you may email us the publicly accessible link to your presentation. We will send you a confirmation email letting you know that your presentation is successfully uploaded and accessible. Note: If you are using Prezi, your presentation should be downloaded for offline viewing and the zip file should be uploaded using this portal.

2. Upload

Option 1:  Online Uploader – CLOSED

The online uploader is now closed. Please bring any presentations to the on-site speaker ready room, located in Cypress Ballroom 1.

Option 2:  Speaker Ready Room (Cypress Ballroom 1/2)

GCPS and EPC presenters should coordinate with their session chairs to upload their files. 

For Fuels and Petrochemicals Presenters:

There will be an on-site speaker ready room, located in Cypress Ballroom 1/2. There, technicians will assist with uploading your talk to one of our upload kiosks, after which you will be able to test it out on a simulated lectern setup.

Please bring your presentation file(s) on a USB drive.

You can make changes in the speaker ready room, and you can update your files as many times as you’d like. Please upload your files no later than 2 hours before your scheduled presentation. Most presenters are in and out of the Speaker Ready Room quickly, however it’s good to allow some time in case your files need special attention.

3. Presenting

When it’s time to present, simply walk to the lectern and click on your name using the mouse or the trackpad.  If the person before you left his or her talk on the screen, press the big glowing “Refresh” button on the lectern, and that will clear the screen and bring up the list of speakers for your session.

If you are using PowerPoint, Keynote, or Libre/OpenOffice, your presentation will be displayed in “Presenter View,” where the slideshow is shown on the projector, and the laptop will display presenter tools. These include your current slide, next slide, and any notes you may have included. If your presentation requires interaction, such as clicking on movies, you can do so in Presenter View.
