Instructions for Oral Presentations

You can find the session in which your presentation is scheduled on the website of the conference and in the conference program. Please make your presence known to the session chair at least 10 minutes before your session starts and be present during the entire session in which your presentation is scheduled.

Length of presentation
The time allocated for contributed presentations is 15 minutes, plus 3 minutes for discussion. The length of invited presentations is determined by the respective session organizer. We kindly ask you to stay within the time limit in order to give the other speakers enough time for their talks, and to give the audience the opportunity to ask questions.

Preparation of presentation
The computers used for presentations are equipped with Windows 7 and the following software: Java 2 Runtime Environment SE 7.0 Update 51, Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus (including PowerPoint), 3.3, CutePDF 2.8, VLC Media Player 2.0.2, QuickTime Alternative 3.2.2, Adobe Reader 10.1.3, 7-Zip 9.20, Adobe Shockwave Player, Adobe Flash Player 11.3.300.265, Firefox 10.0.4

We strongly recommend that you use standard fonts provided by Microsoft Office as this will guarantee full support on our computer systems. For PowerPoint presentations we recommend that you also bring a PDF-version as backup if possible.

Transfer of presentation
All invited and contributed oral presentations will be using computers provided by the conference organization. No personal laptop or notebook computers will be allowed for invited and contributed oral presentations.

The presentations can be uploaded to the computer of the respective lecture hall in any break prior to your session. A ‘Helper’ will assist and assign your file to the correct session folder. At that instance quickly check your presentation.

We recommend that you have a backup copy of your presentation on your own memory stick available during your session.
