Data presentation

If using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other format, such as PDF), please note you need to bring it on a "disk on key" Memory stick (using the USB port in the computer), a CD or a DVD and load it on one of the Meeting computers in the Speakers' Ready Room, at least 1 hour before the start of the session.

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 Speakers' Ready Room.

You may supply your own 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 Speakers' 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.

​Please note that the computers in the session halls are being supplied with Windows 7 and Office 2010.

We strongly recommend not using own computers for presentation. Please note that the time used for connecting own computer will be deducted from the total presentation time.

Important notice: Oral presenters are required to use a Disclosure Slide as the second slide of their presentation. The template can be downloaded here​.
