Preparations for Public Demo
The public demo, in which you will present your projects, will take place on Tuesday 22/01, 12:30-14:30, at Student House (בית הסטודנט האולם השקוף).
The tables will be available for setting up the projects. Each table will have a poster stand, and electric sockets near it. You need to take the prints of your posters from the entrance of the hall.
We expect high network traffic on TechPublic WiFi network during the demo, so we suggest that performance-critical application connect to the internet via cellular gateways.
It is your responsibility to test your projects in the hall and make sure they work under the conditions of the public demo.
We strongly recommend that you arrive early (at least one hour before the public demo starts) so that you get to choose a table that best suits your project, and start setting up and making sure everything works.
If you have any special requests (special place,lighting,screen etc. ) , please let us know ASAP.
