Presentation Venue - Laptop's and Portable Device

posted Nov 14, 2012, 3:25 AM by Research Challenge India

All teams are advised to carry their own laptops and soft copy of presentation in a portable device. This step will act as a backup to the existing IT systems at the venue and is purely to hedge ourselves against issues like

  • Non-standard presentation software
  • Different versions of Microsoft office and Powerpoint
  • Difficulty in accessing Addins for Animations on slides or
  • Any other technical issues like editing etc.

We cannot assure you if the venue would have facility/flexibility to upload a newer version of presentation or edit the existing one. For all practical purposes, we will only consider the presentation submitted by you on or before the above deadline as a qualifying entry.

The hard copy of the presentation submitted by you would be used by Judges to refer to slides, make notes, ask questions, etc. If there are animations in your report, please send us the word as well as the PPT (or PPTX) file. 

For questions, email
