Attendee Information:

How to connect Audio
Option 1. (Preferred Option) Call Using Computer  This is at no cost to you.

Option 2.   Select Call Me This is at no cost to you.

Enter your phone number and WebEx will call you.  This is at no cost to you unless you are charged for incoming minutes. If you connect via your computer audio then mute either your computer or your phone to eliminate feedback.

Option 3.   Select I Will Call In (International participants will incur phone charges)

  1. Sign into WebEx, select “I Will Call In”.  Scroll down for phone number and note the Attendee ID.  
  2. Dial and enter the meeting number then your Attendee number. Your attendee number associates your audio with your computer session name. If you connect via your computer audio then mute either your computer or your phone to eliminate feedback.
How to ask a question during the workshop
When joining the room, please mute yourself unless you are speaking.  Ask questions via the chat option.  The moderator will call on you and you may unmute yourself, but please remember to remute yourself once you are done speaking.

To reduce audio lag, please avoid turning on the video.  You may also close extra applications to provide more memory to your computer.

Group Photo
We will be asking participants to turn on their cameras for a group photo at the end of the presentations.  Please be prepared to turn on your camera then, as we will be taking a screen shot to send out to everyone.  


Presenter Information:
For all presenters, our preference is for you to share your screen in WebEx during your presentation. However, we strongly encourage you to provide your presentation to ESPO in case there are computer/bandwidth issues during the meeting.  ESPO can display your slides (assuming you can dial in).  You will receive an email with upload instructions for your presentation. See tips below.  Contact ESPO (Bernie/Dan) if you want to practice.
  • If you are with NASA, Form NF-1676 has been replaced by a website called STRIVES (Scientific, Technical and Research Information discoVEry System) for the submission and approval for NASA STI (Scientific and Technical Information) (https://strives.nasa.gov). Follow your center procedures for approval of STI.
  • We plan on posting all presentations on this website after the meeting, behind a password. Please send a version of your presentation for posting if there are slides you do not want posted.  We prefer to have Powerpoint compressed to 96 ppi (Windows) or 72 ppi (Mac) for on-screen resolution and then saved as pdf for posting.

Presenter Tips

  1. Test audio beforehand and make sure headsets/ear buds are charged.
  2. Check your microphone is enabled.  
  3. Check that your computer isn’t muted for audio output.
  4. We recommend that you turn notifications off – so previews of your emails/texts do not appear on screen for all to see.  
  5. We recommend sharing only your presentation application (Powerpoint, Keynote, or pdf), and using Slide Show/Presentation View. Try to maximize real estate for your presentation application.
