Overhead projectors for transparencies, slides and video tapes can NOT be used.

To speakers who use your own laptop PC.

Your pc should have a mini D-sub 15-pin output (female), a standard monitor terminal, to be connect to the projector. The power supply is AC100V, 50Hz, with the plug type A, which has two flat blades without GND.

In case of a connection problem, you should bring a copy of your presentation in a CD-R or a USB memory stick, which can be used with our backup computers that have the PowerPoint on Windows and MacOSX. But please do NOT rely too much on our computers since they may not work properly for various reasons, such as the version inconsistency of PowerPoint.
