How to submit your presentation on-site

Speakers should deliver and view/check their PowerPoint presentations at the Speakers’ Preview Center (located on the ground floor, to the right of the entrance of Auditorium 2,) at least 2 hours prior to the start of the respective session. For sessions starting at 08:00, the PowerPoint presentations should be delivered the previous day.

In order to avoid any delays, speakers are kindly requested to hand in their PowerPoint presentations on USB sticks. If you are bringing your own laptop, the presentation will be transferred onsite in the Speakers’ Preview Center.

Technical Instructions

Please use Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2007, 2010 or 2013* (*.ppt) or (*pptx), or Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf) to guarantee slides will open successfully on an on-site PC. Prepare your presentation in 16:9.

Images inserted into PowerPoint are embedded into the presentations. Try to avoid overloading your presentation with unnecessary images. In case you have any videos in your presentation, please test your presentation with the on-site PC several hours before your presentation.
