CSCA 2018 Technology Availability

As you prepare for this year's conference, CSCA wants to provide a reminder regarding what technology will be available for presenters at this year's convention.

PROJECTORS: All presentation rooms will have projectors that should be able to connect to most computers. If you have a Mac, you may need a dongle. CSCA cannot be responsible for any personal computing issues.

INTERNET/WIFI: We regret that the hotel has informed us that wifi will not work in the convention presentation areas. Please plan accordingly.

SPEAKERS: The association will have speakers available for all presentations for the Media Studies and Popular Culture interest groups. Two other sets of speakers that can be requested on a first-come, first-served basis. Please see the sign-up sheet in the registration area for more details. The conference technical staff will ensure that speakers are delivered according to that sign-up request sheet.

CSCA works  hard to provide as much technology as possible for the convention, but exorbitant costs incurred by hotels limit what can be provided. We do thank you for understanding!

We also thank Conference Technical Director Heather McLaughlin and her team of volunteers who offer to set up and maintain the technology as a service to the association. Without their generosity, we would not be able to boast the technology availability that we do. Their hard work is certainly appreciated!


CSCA Technology Policy

CSCA will attempt to provide multimedia projectors and speakers based on financial considerations to all presenters who request them at the time of the program submission.

CSCA is unable to approve requests for equipment such as personal computers, laser printers, satellite links, teleconference equipment, DVD/VHS players, or Internet access. CSCA members or individuals attending the convention either may elect to rent such equipment from the convention hotel at their own personal expense or may bring their own equipment, unless prohibited by the convention hotel. (Please check beforehand with the Executive Director about the convention hotel policy). If individuals provide their own equipment, the hotel may elect not to help if service is needed. If the hotel does help and assesses a fee, the individual requesting help is responsible for all charges.
