Presentation format

We can support both PC and Mac platforms, but PC is the default for all fixed AVS in the Wallenberg (STIAS) lecture theatres. Please note that, if the format of your presentation is PowerPoint, it will be run through the PC-based system on the day and you should ensure that you have tested it on a PC before arrival if it was formatted on a Mac, as the platform change can modify elements of the presentation. Standard-format audio files can also be supported in the space and, in addition, the lecture theatre has internet connectivity through Wi-Fi.

Please upload all presentations in the hour before the first session of the day.


Stellenbosch is a fairly popular tourist destination and accommodation can be in short supply so it is best to book early.
