Presentation Upload

If you are using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other PC-based application), please note that you have to deliver it on a USB Memory stick to one of the technicians in the room as soon as you arrive at the Venue in the morning – and at least 1 hour before the start of the session.

Please note that only conference computers are used in the session halls. These are supplied with Office 2019 (at least) and the native ratio of the projection on the screens in the halls is 16:9. The Congress will not be able to support lecture slides presented on personal computers.

If the PowerPoint presentation includes video clips, please make sure that you carry out a test with the technician in the room at least 1 hour before the start of the session or as soon as you arrive to the venue in the morning. You will need to ensure that the videos are working well.

Important Note for Macintosh Users

To use MAC presentations on the PC compatible conference computer, please note that you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, before taking it to the room:

  1. Convert it to PowerPoint or PDF.
  2. Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (Special characters might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint-based PC).
  3. Insert the images as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).
