[ambrus]: If you don't do that, some people will be able to use only two thirds of the available screen area, or have to prepare three versions of their slides, each of which is a waste that you could avoid with one simple phrase in the call for papers.
[Corion]: As for somebody hosting national conferences, we don't always know the kind of connectors and aspect ratios available ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: well sure, but that's the similar to any printed document, and the margin is diminishing with today's technology. Video games no longer have to assume that the CRTs won't show the edges of the screen.
[Corion]: If you cram your slides with that much information, they might work in an "offline" situation but not very well for a live presentation IMO
[ambrus]: Corion: in that case I also ask the people who rent the conference rooms to tell conference organizers about the available tech.
[Corion]: ambrus: No, you're misunderstanding. If you place content too far on the left/right/top/ bottom, people might not see it because the view is obstructed ;)(
[Corion]: In Amsterdam, the screen went down to the bottom of the stage (60cm above ground) and the seating was on the ground, meaning that the rows in the back couldn't see the bottom of slides.
[Corion]: There also were some columns that meant that maybe you couldn't see the left/right edge of a slide.
[ambrus]: Corion: Sure. I've had a course in a 50 seat lecture hall that has two fucking columns in the middle.
[Corion]: Talking about it, the top should be fairly visible in the situations I've experienced at least. The top is uncomfortable for people in the first three rows, but that's life ;)
