Data Presentation:

If using a PowerPoint (or any other computer) presentation, please note you need to bring it on a "disk on key" Memory stick (using the USB port in the computer) and load it on one of the conference computers in the Speaker Ready Room, 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 it 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 Speaker Ready Room.

Please note that the conference computers in the session halls are being supplied with Windows 8 and PowerPoint 2013.


Important note for Macintosh 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 Speaker Ready Room:

  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).

You may use your own Macintosh laptop computer as a back-up. In such a case please confirm that it has a VGA socket for external signal and come to check it first in the Speaker Ready Room as soon as you arrive and later on 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.
