  • stable internet connection for everyone (we shall be taking notes collaboratively), including access codes

Meeting rooms

  • chairs for all
  • power outlets for everyone
  • at least one desk (having desks for everyone would be desirable, and we could arrange with intermediate numbers as well)
  • at least one very stable internet connection (preferably LAN) for the presentation computer (we will look at live websites, and we might have someone chime in remotely); we'd settle for a very stable WiFi, or for registering one of our laptops if your LAN does not accept external computers without extra registration
  • a beamer (perhaps with an additional desk if it is not permanently installed in the room)
  • a presentation computer (especially one known to work well with the beamer) would be very helpful but is not absolutely necessary
  • some screen or flat white space on the wall to project things on
  • some means to regulate lighting
  • a whiteboard/ blackboard or flipchart would be nice but not essential
  • stationary (pens, scissors, tape, post-its)
  • extra room for break-out group
  • signs to the rooms
