Presentation Submission Requirements

The official language of ISH 2010 is English, and the supported presentation platform is Microsoft PowerPoint for Windows. It is ISH 2010 policy that in order to avoid technical difficulties affecting a presentation, all presentations must be submitted in advance, so that they may be pre-loaded and pre-tested prior to the session. In order to facilitate the smooth flow of PowerPoint presentations during the meeting, the Executive Organizing Committee requests that you complete each of the following:

FTP Presentation Submission Site
The FTP Presentation Submission Site is now closed. Please submit via yousendit.com (see below).

Alternative Submission via yousendit.com
If you are having difficulties with accessing the FTP server, we suggest using the website www.yousendit.com to send your file to be uploaded directly to the ftp server for you. Simply follow the instructions on the Home page and email it to the ISH Technical Support address (ish2010@proshow.com).

Please remember to include the following information in the message body:
- Presenter's name
