If using a Powerpoint (or any other computer) presentation, please note you need to bring it on a CD, a DVD or on a “disk on key” memory stick (using the USB port in the computer) and load it on to one of the conference computers in the Speakers’ Ready Room located near the plenary hall (follow “Speakers Ready Room” signs) at least 1 hour before the start of the session. You may supply your own laptop computer as a back-up.
If combining video films with PowerPoint, please make sure to check the content in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session - even after checking it in the Speakers’ Ready Room.
Please note that the congress computers in the session halls are being supplied with Windows XP and Office 2003.
Important note for Macintosh users:
In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer please note that you need to prepare them according to the instructions below, before bringing presentations to the Speakers' Ready Room:
1. Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc.
(Special fonts might convert to a default font when using a PowerPoint based PC).
2. Insert pictures as JPG files (not TIF, PNG or PICT - these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).
3. 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 cases please confirm that it has a VGA socket for external signal and come to check it first in the Speakers’ Ready Room as soon as you arrive and then later in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.
Please note that VHS Video projection, 35 mm’ slide projection and overhead projection (projection of transparencies) will not be available.
It is mandatory that all oral presenters (both invited and free presentations) prepare a disclosure slide as the first slide in their presentation. If you have nothing to disclose, this slide must be included indicated “nothing to disclose”
