All Speakers giving an oral presentation are kindly requested to upload their presentations in their session hall at least one hour before the start of their session (during breaks).

If using a PowerPoint (or any other Software) presentation, please note that you are requested to bring it on a CD, a DVD or on a Memory Stick/Disc-on-Key (using the USB port in the computer) for uploading.

If combining video or audio files with PowerPoint, please inform the staff to ensure that all necessary files are saved in the appropriate folder.

Please note that the meeting computers for your use in the session halls are supplied with Windows 7 and Office 2010, and you may bring your personal laptop computer as a back-up only.


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 session hall:

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, however you are required to bring with you a VGA dongle/adapter compatible with your MAC for external video signal and to check it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 1 hour before the start of the session.
