Data Presentations

Speakers should bring their presentation on a CD, a DVD or USB flash drive (disk-on-key) to the A/V technician in the session hall where their presentation will be held, at least one hour before the start of the session. The A/V technician will upload the presentation on the Conference PC.

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. 
 
The Conference computers are supplied with Windows 7 (at least) and Office 2010 (at least).
 
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.
 
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 Conference: 
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 such a case please confirm 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.
