About your slides
If using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other PC based application), please note you need to bring it on USB Memory stick and load it on one of the Conference computers in the Session Room (indicated in the Programme) at least 1 hour before the start of the session.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CONFERENCE COMPUTERS IN THE SESSION ROOMS ARE BEING SUPPLIED WITH OFFICE 2016.
Recommended slide format is 4:3.
If combining videos with PowerPoint, please make sure to check it in the Session Room where your presentation will take place during a coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.
Alternatively, you may supply your own laptop computer. In such a case please confirm that it has a VGA socket for external signal and check it in the session room where your presentation will be taking place during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.
Notes for MAC 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 Speakers’ 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).
Alternatively, you may use your own Macintosh laptop computer. In such a case please confirm that it has a VGA socket for external signal and come to check it in the session room where your presentation is taking place during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.
Mind the accessibility of your presentation!
Speakers are invited to adhere to accessibility guidelines including large fonts and clear colour contrast. It is recommended to use visual descriptions of the slides during presentations, to ensure visually impaired participants are able to appreciate the slide contents, including visual descriptions of any images.
