Instruction for speakers on-site


  • When preparing your talk, we kindly ask you to consider the time slot provided (including questions).
  • Slides should be formatted for ‘16:9’ ratio within the ‘Design’ menu of Microsoft PowerPoint.
  • PDF are also accepted.
  • Graphics, tables and text should be of a sufficient size to be clearly visible at distance.
  • When choosing fonts for your presentation, please ensure that they are supported by Windows Microsoft Office.
  • Try to avoid complex slide transitions.
  • The laptops support most movie files (VLC, Windows media player) however, the most reliable are movie files with the .mp4 extension.
  • PowerPoint presentations created on Apple Macintosh computers must be saved and tested on a windows computer.
  • Format file (.ppt or .pptx or pptsx) and it is advisable to evaluate the presentation on a PC prior to attending the conference. A common problem in the reproduction under Windows is a failure to display figures for which ‘drag-and-drop’ was used to insert graphic-files into PowerPoint. Figures should instead be inserted using the menu-items ‘insert/ photo / picture from file’ (or similar). Copy-paste of figures from other applications also works well.


Saving Your Presentation:

When saving your presentation, please use the following naming format:

Room_ NN_Time_presentation title.pptx

NN’ is the name or number of the session as it appears in the final programme.

(E.g. Plenary A_S1a_0900_xxxx.pptx)[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
