Session Materials

Spring World 2010 offers the second opportunity for attendees to go ‘paperless’ in all sessions. In an effort to be more environmentally conscious, we will not be printing the large conference books for this show.

Print your session material before arriving onsite. Attendees will also receive a CD with session content at the conference, with the option to work from your laptop in sessions (battery power only). Limited printing kiosks will be available at Spring World 2010 for any changes or last-minute printing needs.

Below you will find all of the Presentation Files for Spring World 2010. To download the .PDF, click right on the Title of the Session and click "Save Target As."

You will need Adobe Reader to view the PDF Documents.

Note: AS3 and TS4 Materials are not yet available. GS6: How Will PS-Prep Affect You? Materials will be available on site (March 20, 2010)
