Question: My file is almost 2GB, how can i send it to you?

Question: Once I submit my PowerPoint to CS Week, can I make changes to it? I may want to update it at the last minute.
Response: On-Site changes to your presentation are NOT encouraged. Although you can make last minute changes, it is best if you can get us a final copy of your presentation by the Mar 2, 2019 deadline. It is your responsibility to make sure the current deck is loaded in the Speaker Ready Room on-site and AV is notified of changes if made.
am waiting for updated information to be made available for use in my
presentation. Why do you need the presentations so far in advance?
Response: Many logistics are involved in preparing for a successful conference. Reviewing
and loading PowerPoints, Signage, room layouts, speaker introductions,
etc to ensure accurate and uniform content is only part of what occurs
in the final month as the conference nears. Your
compliance to the schedule ensures that we have all the necessary
resources to make your presentation as successful as possible. Additionally, CS Week plans to offer a pdf copy of your presentation to all attendees.
