This CD contains the conference proceedings - usually a copy of the presentations given, together with any support material available.

Most talks are PowerPoint presentations. On this CD, these PowerPoint files are usually converted into web pages because these are easier to view in this format. One slide appears on each web page, with easy navigation to all other slides in the presentation.

The CD usually contains an alphabetic index of all documents and a full text search.

If you want more help or further information then a Contact option is usually available with contact details and an email form.
