Audio/visual information for presenters

If you are giving a talk be aware that all the rooms have a computer (with windows OS) and a projector. We recommend all speakers use the computers provided and bring their presentations on a memory stick/USB thumb drive. If you wish to use a personal laptop/computer, you should bring the necessary adapters and cables. The projector connectors are VGA. Please note that for Finland a travel adapter is needed for the power sockets. In Finland the standard voltage is 230V and standard frequency 50 Hz. The power sockets that are used are of type F, but the sockets also work with plugs C and E. Additional information on the Finland power plugs and sockets can be found at


We look forward to seeing you soon,

Bruce and Eve Torrence
Bridges 2016 Program Co-chairs
