The duration of a presentation slot is 25 minutes. You will have 20 minutes for the presentation itself and 5 minutes for questions from the audience.
A LCD projector & computer (Windows 8, MS Powerpoint & Adobe Acrobat Reader) will be available in every session room for regular presentations. Please bring your presentation on a USB, as well as email it to yourself so you have a backup.

Preparation of Visuals:

PLEASE NOTE THAT INDIVIDUALS USING COMPUTER PROJECTION MUST BRING A MEMORY STICK CONTAINING THEIR PRESENTATION. Files can be uploaded to the local PCs in the lecture rooms during the breaks between the sessions. To avoid software compatibility problems (MS Powerpoint), speakers are advised to bring a .ppt or .pptx or PDF-version of their presentation.

Speakers should arrive in their session room 15 minutes BEFORE the start of their session to report to the chair person. If you are presenting during a session which does not have a break before it, report to your presentation room 15 minutes prior to the session before yours.
