We strongly recommend using Microsoft Office PowerPoint or PDF for your presentation. Please note that the congress computers will be supplied with PowerPoint 2013.


Registration Desk

All speakers are required to check in at the Registration Area to upload their presentation at least 1 hour prior to the start of their session. The staff will be available to answer your questions and to help you upload your presentation from your USB memory stick.

If your presentation includes video files, further to uploading it at the Registration Area, please use the coffee and lunch breaks prior to the start of your session to go to the room where your lecture will take place to make sure that it will run smoothly on the congress computers.


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, before bringing it to the Speaker Ready Room: 

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). 

Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT - these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).

Use a common movie format, such as AVI, MPG and WMV (MOV files from QuickTime will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).

You may use your own Macintosh laptop computer as a back-up. In such a case, please make sure to provide a Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter (Dongle). Please visit the Speaker Ready Room to check your presentation and advise the staff of your intent to use your own laptop.

Please arrive at the Plenary room at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your session to plug in your laptop and check your presentation on the projection system.
