Chandra X-Ray Observatory

The Chandra X-Ray Center (CXC)

Oral Presentations

Contributed talks will be 12min maximum duration, with 3min for discussion/questions. Invited talks are 25+5.

We will have both a Mac and a Windows laptop at the podium. If you think a computer/OS mismatch might present problems, please export to PDF. If you have animations in your presentation, it is highly recommended that you test them on our laptops at the meeting (e.g., during a coffee or lunch break), because from past experience, these have a high failure rate.

Electronic Submission

All electronic talks we receive by NOON BOSTON TIME on TUESDAY JULY 8th will be pre-loaded to smooth talk transitions, to help us keep to schedule, and to insure the maximum available time for your talk and discussion. Please make SURE to name your electronic file:

e.g., Green_Paul.ppt

We prefer you submit via ftp to a write-only site as follows:

Login: anonymous
Passwd: your@email.address
cd /pub/xgal14
put LastName_FirstName.ppt

You could also send your electronic presentation by email to but send a separate email telling us, in case the spam filters reject a large file.

Finally, if instead you must bring your completed talk on flash memory stick or CDROM, please see Katy Wyman or Ray Hemond at the meeting to get it loaded onto the machines as far in advance of your talk as possible.
