Local Information for October 2011 AMS Lincoln meeting

University of Nebraska–Lincoln
October 14–16, 2011

Information for Presenters

Please see the AMS guidelines for presenting your talk.

All of the rooms in which talks will be given will have document cameras with electronic projectors. Some of the rooms have other equipment, typically a computer and/or a connection for a laptop computer.
If you wish to use this equipment to present, you may, but:

  • It is strongly recommended that you have a copy of your talk prepared for use with a document camera, just in case.
  • It is recommended that you try out the equipment in the room prior to your talk.

Computing Facilities

There will be a computer lab open for the duration of the meeting for use by the participants and there will be guest accounts to use on those machines.

The lab, which will be near the registration desk, will be open most of the time when the registration desk is open.

Wireless accounts

Visitors who bring laptops with wireless cards can request a temporary wireless account from UNL. This can be done ahead of the meeting. Click here for information on UNL's wireless network.

To request wireless access, visitors need to fill in forms on a few separate linked pages (rather than filling in a form on a single page). Click here to get started.
Within a few minutes of submitting the form you'll have 1 month of free access. The main information you need is the MAC address of the wireless card of your laptop.

Lactation room

We are planning on providing a lactation room in Avery Hall. The location will be announced here soon.
