Guidelines for oral presentations

Due to author copyright privileges, it is strictly prohibited to take photos and/or copies from laptops and desktops of any scientific material without the expressed permission by the authors.

Lecture rooms

Oral presentations are scheduled in thematic sessions. The program gives details for each session and the timings for presentations, which include discussion and change over.

The lecture room is equipped with a computer, a projector, a pointer, and one screen. A conference assistant will be present in the lecture room. He/she will help the chairperson and the speakers.

PC demonstration

The oral presentations are organized centrally. Therefore the authors are kindly asked to upload their presentations at the presentation upload desk, next to the registration desk, within 30 minutes prior to the actual time block of the session. Then our technical staff will take care of uploading the material to the respective lecture room. A lecture room assistant will be available for any help.

It is not allowed to use personal laptops for presentations.

The following software will be installed on the lecture room computers:

  • Windows 10;
  • MS Office 2013 (Power Point, Word, Excel);
  • Adobe Reader DC;
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Internet Explorer;
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Windows Media Player;
  • VLC Media Player;
  • Adobe Flash Player.

Oral summary of poster papers

Convenors or chairpersons may ask authors of (certain) poster papers from a session to provide, ad hoc, a short, (2–5 minutes) summary of their contribution (1–2 transparencies) in case a gap should occur in the oral session's time schedule and there is no stand-by paper available to fill in.
