Instructions for speakers

In general, each oral presentation will be allocated a time slot of 20 minutes, including questions and handovers. Your presentation must be no more than 15 minutes in order to allow for questions and discussion, and handover and next speaker set-up. The session chairs will be instructed to terminate overrunning presentations in order to ensure that every presenter has the same amount of time. In special/invited sessions and/or plenary presentations, the length of the time slots may vary. Please check the exact duration of these presentations when the full program is posted and with the Track/Session Chairs.

On the day of your presentation
Presenters/Speakers should arrive in the session room well
ahead of the start of the session in order to install and set up their presentation, meet the Session Chairs, and receive instructions from Session Chairs. The presenters are encouraged to remain in the session room from start to end, in case the delegates would like to discuss with the presenters additional points after the session.

The session rooms are equipped with a data projector and a computer to which your presentation may be copied (from a USB memory stick). After transferring your presentation to this computer, please make sure immediately that the file opens correctly. The session room computers are equipped with Microsoft Office.

Installation of any additional player software or codec is not supported. Only for very special needs, usage of presenters’ own laptop is allowed.  A Speakers’ Ready Room will be available during the conference.

Some Guidelines for preparing your presentation
Make sure that your slides are readable
, i.e., when preparing your presentation, use sufficiently large font sizes (at least 20 pt), and avoid colour combinations with poor contrast. Pay special attention to diagrams and graphics so that they appear readable. Presentations should be either in Microsoft PowerPoint™ or Adobe PDF™ format.
