Technical Information – Oral Presentations
If using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other format, such as PDF), please bring it on a USB stick / “disk on key” Memory stick (using the USB port in the computer) and load it on one of the Meetings’ computers in the Speakers’ Ready Room, at least 1 hour before the start of the session.
PC computers will be available for oral presentations in each session hall. The Meeting PCs are equipped with Windows 10 and Office 2016.
If combining video films with PowerPoint, please coordinate it first with the technician in the Speakers’ Ready Room and then check it in the Session Hall where your lecture will take place, during a break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session, even after checking it in the Speakers’ Ready Room.
In order to avoid delays, we recommend that you use the Meeting’s computer. However, if you use your own laptop computer, please ensure that it has a HDMI port for external signal, and come to check it first in the Speakers’ Ready Room, as soon as you arrive. In addition, test it in the Session Hall where your lecture will take place, during a 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 prepare your presentation according to the instructions below, before bringing it to the Speakers’ Ready Room:
1. Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana, etc. (special fonts might be changed to a default font on a PC-based PowerPoint).
2. Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PC-based PowerPoint).
Alternatively, you may use your own Macintosh laptop computer. In such a case please ensure that you provide it with a HDMI adaptor for external signal and coordinate it with the operator in the Speakers’ Ready Room as soon as you arrive. In addition, test your computer in the Session Hall where your lecture will take place during a break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the session.
