How do I upload my presentation?

You may upload your presentation prior to the conference via the PRG Upload Center website, https://ghc.prgpresents.com/   Use your email Id and password (you should have received this via an email) as the initial password to Login.

I did not receive an email to upload my information, what should I do?

Please send an email to present@prg.com and we will be happy to assist you. It is possible that your session is not in a Speaker Ready Room.

 When is the deadline to upload my presentation?

You can begin uploading today all the way till 4 hours before your actual presentation on site at GHC. Prior to your session, it is mandatory that you visit the Speaker Ready Room onsite located at (GRBCC Location: Room 330 Level Three or Hilton Americas Location: Room 430 Level Four) to make sure that your presentation is as expected.

I am on a panel and I don’t plan on doing a presentation or using the projection system in the room, what should I do?

Send present@prg.com an email and we will remove you from any future communications.

Has this email gone out to all the presenters/panelists in my session?

Yes, mostly. However, please ensure that you communicate with your session participants to prepare your presentation.

Is there a presentation template that speakers need to use?

It is mandatory to use the ABI designed PowerPoint template with the 2015 Conference theme. We ask that you use this template in its entirety for your panels, presentations and handouts. Download the GHC template here: http://gracehopper.anitaborg.org/information-for-speakers/

When submitting the presentation through the PRG Upload Center there is a link to add Support Files which would be video files, audio files, spreadsheets, or other files included with your presentation. If you have any questions please contact present@prg.com

Do I need to check-in at the Speaker Ready Room (GRBCC Location: Room 330 Level Three or Hilton Americas Location: Room 430 Level Four) at the Houston Convention Center/ Hilton Americas?
