Technical Information

Data Presentations
PC computers will be available for oral presentations in the session hall. The Conference PCs are equipped with Windows 8 and Office 2013.

If using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other format, such as PDF), please bring it on a “disk on key” memory stick (using the USB port in the computer).

Please bring your presentation to the A/V technician in the session hall where your lecture is taking place, at least 30 minutes before the beginning of the session. The A/V technician will upload your presentation to the Conference computer.

Alternatively, you may use your own laptop computer. In such a case, please confirm that it has a VGA socket for external signal and come to test it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the beginning of the session.

Important note for Macintosh users
In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer, you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, before bringing it to the session hall:
1. Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (special fonts might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint     based PC).
2. Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).

Alternatively, you may use your own Macintosh laptop computer. In such a case please confirm you provide it with a VGA adaptor for external signal. Additionally, we kindly ask that you will test your laptop compatibility with the projection equipment, located in the session hall where your lecture would take place. We suggest you do so during the coffee or lunch breaks, prior to your session and at least 30 minutes before the beginning of the session.
