INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PREPARATION OF ORAL PRESENTATIONS

If using a PowerPoint presentation, please note you need to bring it on a Memory stick (using the USB port in the computer) and load it at least 1 hour before the start of the session.
Please note that the conference computers in the session halls are being supplied with Office 2010.
Please also note that no audio-video will be supported by the system. You can display videos without any audio.
If combining a video with PowerPoint, please make sure to check it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session - even after checking it in the Slide Room.

In the case you need to use your own laptop computer, please confirm that it has a VGA socket for external signal and come to check it first as soon as possible in the session hall where your lecture is taking place (during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session) at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.

Important note for Macintosh users
In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer please note that you need to prepare it according to the instructions below:
1. Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (special fonts might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint based PC).
2. Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT - these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC ).

Alternatively you may use your own Macintosh laptop computer. In such a case please provide it with a VGA adaptor for external signal and come to check it first in the Slide Room as soon as you arrive and later on in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.
