Presenter instructions

Oral Presentations

Presentations should last no longer than 20 minutes to allow 5 minutes for questions and changeover to the next speaker. All screens are in widescreen (16:9) format. Each presenter is strongly encouraged to arrive at the assigned conference room 10 min minimum before the commencement of the session to meet with the session chair.

Each speaker is requested to bring along with them the presentation on a USB pen and to upload the presentation in the room, which is assigned to his/her presentation at least one hour before the session starts.

Audio-Visual Equipment

Presentation rooms are equipped with projectors for computer-based presentations. Presentations should be prepared in PowerPoint or PDF. Presenters will be provided with a laser pointer. Slides with movies (format .MOV or MP4) must be checked for playback on the laptop (Apple Mac).

For Mac users: PowerPoint slides are normally compatible. If you use “Keynote” please take care that the file is converted in PDF.

The use of one’s personal Laptop is allowed but not recommended. The presenter is responsible for checking the compatibility with the conference venue equipment.

Remote presenters

Microsoft Teams will be used for the connection of remote presenters. An mpeg4 video of the pre-recorded registration of the presentation (with audio and video) must be sent to the conference chair. The session chair can opt to use this recorded presentation in case of difficulties in having a stable and performant connection.
