    For all companies who will be making a presentation at the Workshop:

    You are invited to submit an advance copy of your presentation, complete with graphics and illustrations.  Please use PowerPoint 16:9 format and embed .mp4 videos if have them.  Please do not use .wmv, .avi or other video format, .mp4 only.  No proprietary markings please.  Do not include any pages or images that require going online or have security requirements.  Everything needs to be embedded in the file and unprotected.  The laptop that will display the presentations during the workshop is not connected to the internet so external links to YouTube or anywhere else will not work.  All content must run locally in PowerPoint.

    These materials will be included on the IWPC website Research Library for member access in PDF format.
