PREPARATION OF ORAL PRESENTATIONS

Uploading your presentation:
If using a PowerPoint (or any other computer) presentation, please note you need to bring it on a memory stick (using the USB port in the computer) and load it on one of the Congres's computers in the Speakers' Ready Room, at least 1 hour before the start of the session.

Please note that the congress computers in the session halls are being supplied with Office 2013.

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.​

However, if you choose to use your own computer please note it has to have a HDMI socket for external signal. In such a case please come to update the operators in the Speakers' Ready Room about it and later on come to test 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.

Video films in your presentation:
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.

Presentation duration: 
The duration of your presentation is indicated in the interactive scientific program. Please note that your presentation time includes time for questions and answers. Therefore, you are asked to plan your presentation accordingly and leave 2-3 minutes for questions at the end of your presentation. It is possible that there will not be sufficient time for questions after your presentation. Please follow the instructions of the session Chairpersons.

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

Important note for Macintosh users:
In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer please note that you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, before bringing it to the Speakers' Ready Room:
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 HDMI adaptor for external signal, come to update the operators in the Speakers' Ready Room about it and later on come to test it 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.
