All registered speakers of SPIN2008

Recommended file formats

problem with PowerPoint, please see these
worksite is created specifically for SPIN2008 talk
uploading using the UVa
collab worksite. Please read the
following instructions carefully:
- All speakers will be added to the SPIN2008 collab
worksite by September 26, 2008 (some may be added much earlier);
- Once you are added to the worksite, you will receive
emails: One from "firstname.lastname@example.org" which contains your
login id (your email address) and password information. The other email
is from the LOC member who added you to the worksite, which inform you
that you have been added as a new user. Follow these instructions to
login to UVa collab.
(Note: If you received only the email from the LOC member, but not the
password, you may request for a password by clicking on "Lost Password"
on the left menu bar at the main UVa collab website.)
- After logging in, you will see in the top menu bar "My workspace" and
"SPIN2008". Click on "SPIN2008" to choose this worksite;
- On the left
menu bar, choose "Resources". Three directories for SPIN2008 talks will
show up in the main window: "plenary talks", "plenary talks (friday
evening director's session)", and "parallel
talks". The directory "parallel talks" is further divided into
eight (8) subdirectories.
- Choose the session your talk belongs to, then use
"Add" -> "Upload files" to upload your talk.
- Use "Browse" to choose the file you want to upload
from your laptop or PC. Note that due to storage limitation on the
UVa/collab worksite, we suggest
you limit the file size to 10MBytes
total. However, we understand special circumstances may occur and as
long as NOT EVERYONE's file is larger than 10MB, we should not have
problems with disk space.
- After choosing the file, type in a new filename in
the "Display Name" box. We strongly recommend using "Lastname_Firstname.ext" as the
display name, where ".ext" depends on the file type. This is to make
sure that the SPIN2008 worksite manager can recognize which talk the
file is for. If you used a different filename, it might be
renamed by the worksite manager.
- In "Email notification", choose "None - No
- click "Upload Files Now". This will take a few
seconds or minutes (depending on your network speed).
- You may update your talk by removing your old file
and upload a new one. Note that typically you are only allowed to
remove files that were uploaded by yourself.
- The talk you upload to the worksite will be published.
- You may upload only one file for each talk. However,
if you wish to use different files for your presentation and future
publishing, you may upload two files. In this case, please make
sure filenames are obvious enough such that the correct file will
be downloaded to the local PC before your session starts.
