Using a Co-Presenter
You may use co-presenters in your session...
- They do not need to be listed on the Proposal Form.
- They must register for the conference.
- They must pay the conference fee.
In a policy change adopted by the MACE Board of Directors, beginning with Spring MACE 2014, we will no longer waive the conference fee for co-presenters.
The Alumni Center and KSU Student Union have wireless Internet Access.
If you require a "wired" connection please indicate that on the registration form. Every effort will be made to accommodate a "wired" connection request at the presenter table, but not guaranteed.
Please read the KSU Information for Visitors & Guests to make sure your computer meets the requirements for connection to the KSU network.
The campus network actively scans for computers in violation of these policies, and if detected your computer may not be allowd to connect.
The MACE staff will not attempt to overide any security settings in place on your computer. Please visit with your IT staff to make sure your computer will operate properly with the KSU network.
An email will be sent to all conference attendees with the settings needed to make a wireless connection.
Please have your IT staff show you how to make the connection or have them set your computer up ahead of time.
Equipment and Software
MACE will provide a LCD projector and screen in each room.
Lab computers for Hands-on sessions will be laptops. PC's will be running Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or later with all critical updates installed. Macs will be running OS X version 10.5 or later with all critical updates installed.
You will need to provide your own computer.
Additional hardware you may need will be your responsibility.
For Hands-on Sessions you will need to clearly communicate your Software needs with the Conference Chairs. You can do this when filling out the online form. The Conference Chairs will determine installation procedures.
Early arrival to confirm room setup, software and/or hardware, is expected.
You can expect technical support from the MACE staff.
If providing paper hand-outs, expect up to 30 per session.
Electronic handouts can be left at the Registration desk or emailed to our Webmaster before the conference. Electronic handouts will be placed on the MACE web site for downloading.
More details will be in your email confirmation letter.

The garage will be open to MACE participants from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm on Thursday, and 7:00 am to Noon on Friday.
You will need the MACE parking pass to show to K-State staff as you enter and exit the garage. Information about the MACE parking pass will be sent to you in an email before the conference.
