Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to bring to ASLAN?
You'll need your computer system, equipped with a network port. We'll provide the tables, chairs, power and necessary network hardware and network cable. We can't always promise more than one power point per lanner so if you need more be sure to bring a power board. We also recommend you bring headphones instead of speakers. If using speakers understand that ASLAN admins may direct you to turn your speakers down so that you will not take away from fellow ASLanners having a good time.
