Technical Info – Speakers

Information for Speakers:

The presentation time should include 2-3 minutes for discussion.

We wish to provide session chairs with a short introduction of the speaker in their session and ask you to please send us such an introduction as soon as possible. This information will then be forwarded to your session chair. We suggest that the introduction includes: current position, last degree received, postdoc, main awards/honors, current research interests.

In addition, for the smooth running of the session, speakers and session chairs are required to meet 10 minutes prior to the begining of the session, in the session hall and coordinate all necessary details.

Data Projection:

PC computers will be available for oral presentations in each session hall.
The conference PCs are equipped with Windows 8 and Office 2013.

If using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other format, such as PDF), please bring it on a “disk on key” (using the USB port in the computer) to the A/V technician in the session hall where your lecture is taking place, at least one hour before the start of the session. The A/V technician will upload the presentation on the Meeting’s PC.

If combining video films with PowerPoint, please make sure to check it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a break prior to your session, at least one hour before the start of the session.

In order to prevent delays in the session, we do not recommend that speakers use their personal computer. However, if you wish to do so, please coordinate it with the A/V technician in the session hall, at least one hour before the start of your session. In addition, please check your computer in the session hall during a break prior to your session.

Important Notes for Macintosh Users:

In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer, please prepare it according to the instructions below, before bringing it to the Meeting:

  1. 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).
  2. Insert pictures as JPG files (and 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. In that case, please verify that it has a VGA socket for an external signal and arrive to check it first with the A/V technician in the session hall, at least one hour before the start of your session.
