T-minus 1 Week: A/V, Lunches, & Weather

Questions are coming in about various details about the conference, so we thought we’d post some odds and ends.

1. A/V needs and laptop availability: Each session room (for panels and papers) will be equipped with a laptop and a projector. These are PC laptops running on the XP operating system. Those who wish to connect their own laptops should feel free do to so—we’ll have adapters ready for Macs made in the last 5 years. Mac users might want to come equipped with an adapter of their own as well as a USB drive. Those presenting posters are encouraged to bring their own laptops, if presenting digitally.

2. Lunch: dh09 won’t be providing lunches during the conference, but there are a number of shops in the Stamp Student Union and other local eateries within walking distance of campus. Participants will get a mini-dining guide in their registration folders but should also feel free to ask one of our volunteers for help.

3. Weather: College Park tends to be hot and humid in June, and this summer is no exception. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid to high 80s during the day (29-32 C), going down to about 70 over night (21-23 C). The conference will be very air-conditioned inside, so you might want to bring a sweater or jacket for the daytime. We’re expected to have scattered thunderstorms during the day, so you might put a light jacket, hat, or umbrella on your packing list.
