That is an interesting question. I'm curious what Val's reply will be. I know that when I presented at TISLR last summer, I had to have as much of a final version 2 weeks before as well. If there were some last minute changes, it was ok to make. However, they wanted to have as close to the final product so that they could make sure that everything would work smoothly during the presentation technically and with interpreters.
Since we won't all be in the same room, I'm sure that Val is thinking about the possibilities that maybe someone can't see/show their presentation live to technical difficulties. The way to get around that would be to have a place that hosts them for people to download. With 40 presentations, I'm sure it would take two weeks alone for Val to create a webpage for that and upload them all.
This might not be the only reason, but it is one that I can think of with relations to past experience with conferences. It's interesting how you said you've never had a "presentation deadline" where I think I have had that every time. Could just be differences in how conferences are run in different places. In any case, just thought I'd leave my one cent. (It isn't two cents anymore due to inflation. *wink*)

I'm used to do this for my work's meetings) and make everyone see the presentation in the same time I speak... and then I can send you the presentation if you want to put it in an archive of the SWS2014....

>> Hello Symposium presenters...
>> There are two parts to your presentation…
>> 1. The LIVE online discussion on Google Hangouts and YouTube in July. It will be for 20 minutes to 30 minutes with questions from the viewers. So you will have 40 minutes at most to tell people about your work and point them to your web page for more in-depth learning and viewing...
>> 2. Your Web Archive page will include your Abstract, bio, links to videos, PowerPoint slides and documents, that will remain on the web. Your videos can be of any length (they can be long), and your written papers can be as long or as short as you wish…anything to archive your presentation.
>> The theme of the SignWriting Symposium 2014 is “40 Years of Writing Sign Languages”, since it is exactly 40 years, since SignWriting began in 1974.
>> 1. Presentations deadline: July 7, 2014
>> 2. Your presentation can be ANY length you choose.
>> 3. There are three Presentation Venues: written papers, slide presentations and video presentations.
>> a. Written Papers accepted in the following formats:
>> • .pdf
>> • .doc
>> • .docx
>> • .txt
>> • .rtf

>> b. Slide Presentations accepted in the following programs:

>> You are welcome to send me your above work any time you feel ready…as soon as I receive your work, I will post it on your web page in advance of the Symposium…
>> I am working on your web pages now, based on your Presentation number. It will probably take me all of June to do a good job with 42 web pages - we have 40 presentation web pages plus 2 introductory web pages and of course the directory of presenters ;-)
>> Thanks to all of you - Your presentations are very remarkable -
>> Val ;-)

>>> Hello Valerie,
>>> my presentation is very visual. May I prepare in advance a movie of screencaptures of manipulations on my desktop. It would be in Windows wmv file. If so, does someone know a safe software to do such movie. I found one, but I hesitate to install free unknown software:
>>> http://www.clubic.com/telecharger-fiche314584-free-screen-to-video.html (warning: I did NOT try it!!! one user had problems (computer died for unknown reason, others were fine)
>>> A dynamic powerpoint also would be easy.
