You will be able to collect your registration/conference materials starting from 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 2 and continuing through the Conference either of our two locations: The Alianza Francesa or the Centro Cultural Borges/UNTREF. You do not need to register at the same location of your presentation but please do complete your registration before your presentation time.

Book stalls will be available at both locations. Registered conference participants are encouraged to bring copies of their books for display or sale in one or both locations. A member of the VE organizing team will be on hand to sell books and any money collected from book sales will be available to authors from 3: 30 pm to 5:30 p.m. on August 5th.

There is a lot of interest in the conference here in Buenos Aires. We expect panels, screenings and keynote events to be lively and well-attended. In order to keep events running as smoothly as possible, we encourage everyone to consider the following:

-Please, be punctual during presentations. Presentations should run around 15 minutes per person. Keep in mind that our simultaneous translators are on tight schedules and will need to move from room to room.

-All rooms are equipped with a PC or Laptop (not MACs) and are connected to a projector with audio. IT support will be available if needed. Please bring any visuals you would like to use in your presentation on thumbdrives in formats compatible with PowerPoint and Windows. If you need to display your materials through a Mac, please bring your own display port to VGA adapter.

-If you wish to use simultaneous translation services please bring an ID (drivers license, university ID, etc.) in order to check out a set of headphones to use during the session.

-Coffee break tables will be available at both locations. However, lunches will be served only at the Centro Cultural Borges/UNTREF. These services are restricted to registered conference participants so please wear your conference badges.

The final day of the conference will take place at the Ex-ESMA Memory Space/Centro Cultural de la Memoria Haroldo Conti on Sunday, August 6.
