We will be using Discord during the conference for presenters to store their slides, posters, or handouts, and to facilitate communication. If you don't have it installed already, do install it if you would like to take part in this. You could check the following notes about Discord (which explain how to install and use it) before the conference starts:
Everyone who is registered for the conference should be receiving messages every so often from the 30mfm mailing list. We will send out the Discord invitation on the 30mfm mailing list (it will not be posted here).
If you're in Manchester on the 24th May, do come to the Fringe Workshop on 'Moraic vs. X-Slot Syllabification: the Debate'. Note that the two events are happening a different venues. The Fringe Workshop will be held in Manchester University's Samuel Alexander building, room A101.
Notes for poster-presenters: The poster displays will be set up in the tea/coffee break before each poster session. You will be allocated a poster board with these dimensions: 210cm high x 120cm wide. Each person presenting a poster will be provided with the means to affix their posters to the display board. Please feel free to bring handouts with you, so that those viewing your poster also have something to take away. Posters in previous years have taken a wide variety of forms, and there is no one single way to produce a good poster; the important things are that the font size is not too small, that it is easily readable and does not have too much text on it, that it sets out the main points that you want to argue for clearly, and maybe that it's eye-catching, too. Our advice is: don't have too much text, and do include diagrams or other graphics as they can be easier for an audience to take it. Some presenters bring one big poster which takes up all the space (do note the dimensions of the poster board given above if you do this), others bring a series of A3 or A4 sheets of paper which can be fitted together on the poster board. During your poster session, you will be asked to stay by your poster (for at least a fair amount of the session) as other conference participants go around the displays, read your poster and ask you questions about it.
It is not possible to photocopy or print at the CTF itself, but there are a number of options to print posters or photocopy material in Manchester near the CTF. MuPrint (about 15 minutes’ walk from the CTF, towards the city centre) has been recommended. We advise you to check with them in advance if you are planning to use them. It is possible in principle to email or upload a file to MuPrint, so you may be able to arrange to have material ready and waiting for you.
