Oral/Poster Presentation Guidelines

Please note: you need to bring your oral presentation on a USB Memory stick and load it onto one of the conference computers in the Speakers’ Ready Room at least 1 hour before the start of the session.

Please note that the conference computers in the session halls are being supplied with Office 2013 (at least) and the native projection ratio is 16:9 (4:3 ratio presentations are acceptable as well).

If combining video films with PowerPoint, please make sure to check your presentation 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 said session – even if you check it in the Speakers’ Ready Room.

Alternatively, you may supply your own laptop computer. In that case, please confirm that it has an HDMI socket for external signal, advise the operators in the Speakers’ Ready Room as soon as you arrive, and later test it 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 said session.

Important note for Macintosh users:

In order to use Mac presentations on a PC-compatible computer, please note that you need to prepare your presentation according to the instructions below, before bringing it to the Speakers’ 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 PC-based PowerPoint).
  2. Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PC-based PowerPoint).

Alternatively, you may supply your own laptop computer. In that case, please confirm that it has an HDMI socket for external signal, advise the operators in the Speakers’ Ready Room as soon as you arrive, and later test it 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 said session.

The dimensions of the poster board are 90 cm wide and 120 cm high (view sample image below).

Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors’ names and affiliations as stated in the submitted abstract.

The text and illustrations should be bold and large enough to read from a distance of two meters (six feet).
