If attendees bring laptops, PDAs, etc. that will require internet access during the colloquium, then these devices must be registered in BNL's Network Access Registration database in order to access the internet.
Registering your computer device can be done via the device's web browser upon first connecting to BNL's network; however, the registration process will require a BNL life or guest number.
If you do not have a BNL-assigned life or guest number, a specially generated conference key will be provided to you on the first day of the colloquium. This conference key is only valid during the actual days of the colloquium. Please use this conference key in place of the BNL-assigned life or guest number.
Note: Attendees will only have 15 minutes to complete their computer registration. Computers will be blocked if registration is not complete in time. Please make sure you understand the process before starting or ask for assistance.
If you have the conference key for your colloquium and still experience connection problems, please contact the ITD Helpdesk (www.bnl.gov/itd/helpdesk/) (631.344.5522, firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance.
Please always dress accordingly. If there is very inclement weather and you think there is a possibility of BNL either having a delayed opening or being closed for the day, you may call extension x4636 (INFO) from an on-site BNL telephone.
If calling from an off-site telephone or from a cell phone, please call 1-631-344-4636 (INFO).
