Presentation Management Upload Site

The Congress of Neurological Surgeons 2017 Annual Meeting Presentation Management Upload site is now open to presenters for advance submission of their slides and presentations.  You should have already received an email notification on how to access the site.  If you need this information resent to you, please contact Pamela Scianna at pscianna@cns.org

Begin the upload process using your email address as your username. When you click on the link, you will be prompted to create a password. Once that is complete, you will be on the page to upload your presentation.

If you need to get back to the Presentation Management site after registration, please do so here.

If you need assistance or have questions about uploading your presentation please contact support@sessionupload.com.

Presentation Confirmation

After submitting a file, you will receive a confirmation email within an hour. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact support@sessionupload.com to ensure your file was received. When contacting support for technical issues please reference CNS as the conference name and the presenter’s full name.

Make Changes to Your Presentation

If you need to make changes to a presentation that you submitted, you may resubmit the files on the website using a new file name; you should also delete the earlier submission. It’s strongly suggested to review your presentation prior to your session, please visit the Speaker Ready Room on site at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. 

Backing Up Files

Although we take every precaution to ensure files are not corrupted during the file upload, it is always recommended that a backup copy of your presentation is brought with you on a CD or USB stick.

Speaker Ready Room

If you do not submit your presentation in advance, you are asked to bring it to the Speaker Ready Room on site at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center to ensure the quality of your presentation(s) including fonts, bullets, outlines, animations, etc. The Speaker Ready Room computers are configured with the same hardware and software as those in the presentation rooms. All presenters are asked to submit their final presentation revisions no later than 4 hours prior to their presentation time.
